New York Property Records

What are New York Property Records?

New York property records are public records that anyone can access. The information contained in these records can be used to determine ownership of property and any liens or encumbrances against the property.

As with any public record, there are specific steps that must be taken to obtain these records. Since New York property records are maintained at the county level, the first step is to determine which county the property is located in. Once this has been determined, the county clerk's office can obtain the records for you.

These records are helpful to potential buyers or sellers of property and real estate professionals. By searching these records, it is possible to obtain information on past sales of a particular property and any outstanding liens or mortgages.

 

Where to Find New York Property Records

  • Automated City Register Information System (ACRIS): This website is maintained by the New York City Department of Finance. It offers access to property records from 1996 in all five boroughs of New York City. Property records before 1996 are not recorded in this system.
  • NYCityMap: This website is maintained by the New York City Department of City Planning. It offers an interactive map of all five boroughs and the ability to search for specific properties.
