Register O’Donnell Outreaches to Franklin Residents

Norfolk County Register of Deeds William P. O’Donnell and his outreach team held office hours this past Thursday, June 4th, at the Franklin Municipal Building. The Registry is the principal office for the recording and storing of property records in Norfolk County.

O’Donnell and his team were able to provide Franklin residents proof of property ownership by providing a copy of their deed. In addition, Registry personnel were able to answer a variety of questions including but not limited to mortgage discharges and the benefits of the Homestead Act. A Homestead provides limited protection against the forced sale of a property owner’s primary residence to satisfy unsecured debt up to $500,000.

“It was my pleasure to visit Franklin and answer questions regarding Registry of Deeds’ issues. A core objective of my office is to provide quality customer service to the residents of Norfolk County. These office hours are a convenient and cost effective way to bring the Registry and its services directly to the citizens of Norfolk County. In addition to answering questions, we were also able to bring land documents back to the Registry central office for recording. As a result, residents were spared the time and expense of traveling to the Registry’s Dedham location,” noted Register O’Donnell.

In conclusion, O’Donnell stated, “I want to thank the members of the Town Council, Town Administrator Jeffrey Nutting and all the staff at the Franklin Municipal Building for their generosity in allowing us to bring the Registry directly to the citizens of Franklin.”
