This bulletin reviews legislation passed by the 2001 session of the NC General Assembly as of October 26, 2001, that is of interest to registers of deeds. Legislation published after that date will be covered in a later bulletin. The legislation is identified by the session law chapter number, with the original bill number given in parentheses. Unless otherwise indicated, the acts became effective when ratified and are therefore current laws. Among the bills enacted were an increase in uniform fees for deeds of trust, mortgages, and cancellations; marriage licenses; plats; right-of-way plans; and registration of delayed birth certificates.
