Register Ashe visits the Ludlow and Chicopee Senior Centers

This week, Register Ashe visited the Ludlow and Chicopee Senior Centers to speak with people about the recent legislative changes in the Homestead Act. Those in attendance were able to sit with Registry employees, Donna and Caitlin, to review basic information concerning their property. Register Ashe also warned of a re-emerging scam by the State Record Retrieval Board, in which they attempt to disguise themselves as a state agency in order to swindle homeowner's out of an exorbitant fee for a copy of their deed.

Registry Employees visit the Westfield Senior Options 2011 event

On Thursday, April 21st, Registry employees, Donna and Caitlin, attended the Westfield Senior Options 2011. The event is designed to give seniors an opportunity to learn about business and services that could benefit their health, finances and lifestyle. Donna and Caitlin were on hand to answer questions regarding our day-to-day functions at the Registry of Deeds, how the new homestead law has changed, as well as look up one's property ownership information. At the Registry of Deeds, we realize that it is difficult to stay abreast of the varying informational changes relative to property ownership. As a result, we continually strive to reach out to the community by providing information that will benefit its property owners.

Here, Donna provides a gentleman with some informational resources that our office has composed.

Donna and Caitlin had a great day answering various questions and sharing a few laughs with some of Western Massachusetts seniors.
