Re-Elect Laura Riddick Wake County Register of Deeds

Laura Riddick has filed for Re-Election as Wake County Register of Deeds

Today, Wake County Register of Deeds Laura Riddick filed her re-election papers at Wake County’s Board of Elections shortly after noon.  As of of the Raleigh real estate attorneys, I am proud to support her bid for fifth term of continuing to improve the Wake Country Registry.  It really is a first-rate Office with outstanding service, both in person, and on-line, for free from anywhere in the world.

Laura Riddick – Tremendous Work as Wake County Register of Deeds

Folks who have seen my earlier post about Laura’s tremedous work at the Wake County Registry know that I think very highly of her and the huge amount of work she has done.  As many people know, North Carolina has 100 counties, and the Register of Deeds in responsible for keeping up with, indexing, and making public records available for

  • deeds, deeds of trust (mortgages), and other real estate instruments;
  • UCC filings (required to perfect security interest in certain personal property);
  • marriage licenses; and
  • birth and death certificates.

Looking forward and making even more improvements to the Wake County Registry

Laura told me she is looking forward in her next term to executing a smooth relocation of the Registry from temporary space in the One Hannover Square office building in downtown Raleigh to Wake County’s new Justice Center under construction several blocks away, which will be an enormous undertaking.

Laura also noted that the next term will bring the mandatory implementation of major new statewide property-records indexing standards. In a county as large and fast-growing as Wake, that will involve hundreds of thousands of records.

“The next term will be daunting, but I look forward to the challenge. I hope the voters of Wake County find our office’s online tools helpful and are pleased with the customer service we provide with marriage licenses and vital records. If I am re-elected, we will continue to advance technologically while providing professional, courteous, responsive, efficient, and cost-effective service for our customers and all of Wake County’s taxpayers.”

No Finer Register of Deeds than Lara Riddick

As many folks know, there are 100 counties in North Carolina, each with its own elected Register of Deeds.  But I do not know of one in which the land records, UCC filings, and business assumed name records, and vital records are kept in better order or made more easily accessible.  So, I hope you will join me and Vote Laura Riddick for Wake County Register of Deeds.
