New Hampshire Property Search (5 steps)

In New Hampshire, each county has a registry of deeds for properties that are in the given county. You can go to the registry to conduct a search of title transfers of your property, or you can check to see if your county offers online services. In cases of online services, you may need to obtain a subscription and pay fees to an outside provider or to the registry directly. Below is an example of beginning a search in Hillsborough County – the other counties will be similar:
