OFFICE OPERATIONS AT A GLANCE
As of April 30, 2021 34% of filings processed by the Register of Deeds/Archives Office were Releases, showing that Shelby County is in a Buyer/Seller market. Real Estate Agents report that they are running out of inventory, (single family dwellings, commercial buildings and vacant lots). Property owners are selling their property and releasing their financial obligation. Mortgages are the second highest, at 18% of filings being processed, showing people are buying property with the income they received from selling their previous property. Some people want to purchase larger properties, some people want to downsize, either way, Real Estate seems to be working out for both buyers and sellers. The Warranty Deed; the legal real estate document between the seller (grantor) and the buyer (grantee) that protects the buyer by pledging that the seller holds clear title to the property being sold and that there are no encumbrances, outstanding liens or mortgages against it, are the third highest at 16% of filings being processed. The Register of Deeds Office has been processing nearly 3,500 filings a week to keep up with the economic demand of the Real Estate Buyer/Seller market. The charts below show the Register’s office total instrument filings for 2020 and the top ten filings for FY 2021. Shelby County has led the State of Tennessee in economic growth for the past two years and there is no sign of things slowing down. The Shelby County Register of Deeds/Archives office will continue to focus on “EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SERVICE AND CARE” as Shelby County continues to grow! In our effort to continue the accessibility of services to the public, we are pleased to announce we are opening a new satellite office in the Whitehaven Community.

ARCHIVE CORNER JOHN GASTON
JOHN GASTON HOSPITAL 1936
Before he died in 1912, John Gaston had always told his friends that he wanted his mansion converted into a public hospital. That didn’t happen until the death of his wife in 1929. Then the mansion was deemed too small for a decent hospital and it was demolished and the property was converted into Gaston Park. Then the bulk of Gaston’s fortune, supplemented by funds from the Public Works Administration, was used to build a brand new city hospital in the Madison Avenue Medical District. The John Gaston Hospital opened on June 27, 1936 and remained one of the city’s busiest hospitals until it was demolished in 1990 to make way for the growth of the Memphis Regional Medical Center (The Med).
