Register of Deeds Office

Indenture June 20, 1835



Jackson County property owners can remove deed restrictions or covenants from deeds. In Michigan, the Discharge of Restrictive Covenants Act was signed in 2022 allowing the removal of restrictive language that restricts ownership or occupancy. If a Jackson County Property owner would like to remove a deed restriction, they can refer to Enrolled House Bill No 4416 for recording requirements. Completed document can be presented to the Jackson County Register of Deeds along with recording fees to be recorded. This process removes and abolishes the original document of any restriction, covenant, or condition, including a right of entry or possibility of reverter, that purports to restrict occupancy or ownership of property on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, familial status, national origin, or other class protected by the fair housing act, title VIII of the civil rights act of 1968, Public Law 90-284, and the discharge of prohibited restrictive covenants act.
