Court Land Record Division is the custodian, or keeper of all land
records for the City of Norfolk. These records include deeds
showing property ownership, mortgages, certain liens and homestead
exemptions. All records in the Land Record Division are open to the
public. The Land Record Division is a high volume, fast paced
office and for that reason we are unable to perform searches.
