Visit by Middlesex Community College Students

Fifteen students from a Real Estate Law class in Middlesex Community College’s paralegal program came to the Registry of Deeds this morning for an orientation visit. The students’ understanding of Massachusetts real estate law and the registry’s role in it were already quite advanced, so they took full advantage of the opportunity to get a behind the scenes look at how we operate. In the sixty minutes available, we covered the recording process, electronic recording, our back-scanning of older record books, subdivision plans, registered land and our transition from paper to electronic records.

We frequently provide tours to people with all types of interests ranging from traditional real estate law to courthouse architecture. If you’re a member of a class, organization or group that would be interested in discussing such a tour (or a presentation about the registry given at your location), please contact Register of Deeds Richard Howe (me) at 978/322-9000 or by email at
