Visit Westchester Records Online (WRO) for Access Around the Clock
WHITE PLAINS, NY: Westchester County residents and businesses have always been able to call or visit the County Clerk’s Office for quick access to legal records. But now, twenty-four hour access to most legal records can be accomplished through the County Clerk’s Westchester Records Online (WRO) at wro.westchesterclerk.com. The savings in time, travel, and parking can be significant.
WRO allows users to perform fast, easy, and comprehensive online searches for County Clerk records such as judgments and business filings. Users have access to an index of filed and recorded documents free of charge and only pay a minimal daily user fee to view imaged documents accepted by the County Clerk’s office.
WRO replaced the old Public Viewer system, which was limited in its offerings to users. “I recognized there was a need to create a new and expanded online system that was convenient and easily accessible to residents who needed access to records outside of normal business hours,” shared Idoni. “As a result, we enhanced the access to online documents such as legal records by creating the user-friendly Westchester Records Online application, where records can be accessed by residents at anytime day or night,” Idoni concluded.
Westchester Records Online is among a host of successful online system improvements County Clerk Idoni has made in his efforts to serve the residents of Westchester County by modernizing and streamlining his office. In addition to legal records, users can search for deeds, mortgages, maps, and an up-to-date listing of licensed plumbers and electricians. A major achievement was 2010 Digital Government Achievement Awards recognition from the Center for Digital Government (CDG), one of only eight county-to-citizen applications to be recognized nationally.
Visitors to the County Clerk’s Office can obtain hardcopy legal files dating back to 2006. In addition, they can use one of the free public viewing terminals in the office to view the images of documents filed from 2002 to present. The Legal Division in the Office of the Westchester County Clerk is located at 110 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., room 330 in White Plains and is open from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, excluding legal holidays.
