Deeds mailing address and phone number will remain the same!


Washington County Maine was a part of Lincoln County, District of Massachusetts until June 25, 1789. As a result, any Washington County deeds through that date will be found in Lincoln County; everything after that date is available in the Registry of Deeds, lower level of the Washington County Court House.

Available at the Registry are: deeds, a limited number of tax maps, road maps, state highway maps, copies of mortgages, assignments, partial releases, liens and discharges, abstracts of wills, abstracts of divorces, leases, attachments and foreclosures, bills of sale, affidavits and agreements.
