In light of the pandemic and the recent surge in cases, the Shelby County Register of Deeds Office and Archives has made the decision to temporarily close to the public. The office will remain closed Dec. 31, 2020–Feb. 15, 2021.
While the office is closed, staff will continue to work and process documents. Documents may be filed electronically, dropped off or mailed to the office.
Electronic filing is the quickest method of filing records and is strongly encouraged. To authorize electronic filing, complete and return the ACH Form for e-Filing. This form must be returned to the Register's Office by email or postal mail before proceeding.
For those preferring to visit in person, a secure drop-box will be available beginning Jan. 4, 9–11 a.m. and 2–4 p.m. outside of the Register's Office. The drop-box will be checked hourly between 9 a.m. and 12 p.m. Those with bulk drop-offs should call ahead to make delivery arrangements.
The office will also accept documents that are filed by mail. Mailed documents should be addressed to:
Shelby County Register of Deeds
1075 Mullins Station, Ste. W165
Memphis, TN 38134
The Register's Office asks that a self-addressed and stamped envelope be included with any mailed documents or drop-box submissions, as members of the public will be unable to pick up documents once they are submitted. After the documents are processed, they will be returned by mail in the envelope provided.
