Judgments and Liens

Am I able to search judgments and liens in the Office of the Westchester County Clerk?

Monetary judgments, mechanic's liens, broker's liens and notices of pendency can be searched in our White Plains office or at Westchester Records Online. As required by New York State Law, judgments and liens are permanent records accessible by the public. As these documents and filings are indexed by name, you must know and search by a debtor's last name.  Each judgment or lien entry will contain information about the original filing as well as any subsequent filings such as satisfactions and renewals.  Note that judgments are enforceable against real property for ten years and twenty years against personal property.

In addition, to searching our general index, weekly reports detailing the latest judgments and liens are available for purchase online in the Office of the Westchester County Clerk. Transcribed judgments from other New York State counties, Foreign Judgments and New York State Tax Warrants filed in our office are included.  A separate section of the report contains Declaratory Judgments as issued by the court.  Please feel free to review a Sample Report to become familiar with what information will be provided to you if you subscribe. Enrolling in our Subscription Services allows a registered user to view cumulative weekly reports as well as weekly updated reports containing the latest filings from their personal computer for an annual fee of $750.00. However, if you are not enrolled in our Subscription Services, you can still obtain a copy of weekly judgment and lien reports for a fee of $30.00 per weekly printout. 

To obtain the weekly report, please visit Westchester Records Online, or visit our office, located at 110 Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd., Room 330 in White Plains which can be reached by entering through the Richard J. Daronco Courthouse.  The office is open Monday through Friday, excluding legal holidays, from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m.  If you would prefer to request the report by mail, please be sure to include a check or money order payable to the "Westchester County Clerk" in the amount of $30.00 per weekly list as credit cards and cash are not accepted via mail.  Please also include a self-addressed stamped envelope in which your list can be returned.
