The Deeds Registry
The Deeds Registry creates and maintains indices of deeds recorded or enrolled in accordance with the Registration of Deeds Act 1961. Once recorded, original deeds are permanently retained in the Deeds Registry and cannot be returned.
All deeds registered from 1911 to the present day are available to view. For more information on how to view deeds, please see the Deeds and Probate search & purchase page.
All deeds recorded prior to 1911 are housed in the Manx Museum.
