Public NoticePursuant to Act 58 ( R78. H3243), which becomes effective on August 1, 2019, Registers of Deeds fees will be changing. Currently, the Registers of Deeds and Clerks of Courts are working with South Carolina Court Administration to clarify some minor interpretation issues. However, the majority of fees are set, as outlined by the Act.
No grace period will be offered as none is outlined in the statute. It is our intention to give as much notice as possible and we ask that you make yourself and your staff familiar with the changes.
The new fee structure is available in Act 58 found at SCStateHouse.gov
When fees are finalized, the revised fee schedule will be posted on the Register of Deeds page on this website. Copies will also be available upon request in the Register of Deeds office.
The Dorchester County Register of Deeds office uses a third party system for the searching of records.
