Copies of Deeds and Mortgage Documents can be obtained from Westchester County Clerk’s Office
WHITE PLAINS, NY: Westchester County Clerk Timothy C. Idoni wants to reassure Westchester County residents and business owners not to worry about replacing vital records such as deeds and mortgage documents that may have been damaged or destroyed as a result of Hurricane Sandy. “All deed and mortgage documents for property located in Westchester County are recorded and safely maintained at the County Clerk’s office,” began County Clerk Idoni. “Certified copies of these documents, which are legally equivalent to the original, can be issued quickly,” he stated.
The County Clerk’s Land Records staff is here to help you obtain a copy of your deed. You can visit the Land Records Division located at 110 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. in White Plains between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, excluding legal holidays. Please arrive no later than 4:30 p.m. If you cannot visit our office and wish to obtain a certified copy of your land record by mail, please visit Westchester Records Online (wro.WestchesterClerk.com) to confirm that the record has been recorded by our office and to obtain the recording date. Searching the complete index of our land records is free of charge. Once you have confirmed the document has been recorded in our office, or if you need assistance with searching, please call (914)995-3094 or email for additional instructions, including the cost, of obtaining your copy by mail.
There is a nominal fee of $5.00 for up to four pages for a certified copy of your land record, with an additional $1 charged for each additional page. A photocopy is even less expensive.
