Scope and Contents

This series consists primarily of warranty deeds documenting property conveyed to and from the State. Included also are other documents concerning the State's use or lease of real property. This series comprises the State's official record of real property transactions. Excluded are most highway right of way deeds (accessible through the Dept. of Transportation) and most Western & Atlantic Railroad deeds (see RGSGSERIES 85 - 1 - 4). The documents of this series include original or certified copies of various types of deeds, leases, easements, and other records relating to real property transactions. Each deed or real property transaction record has been arbitrarily assigned a deed record number by the Special Services Division; the deed numbers reflect a somewhat chronological arrangement.
