County Clerk Idoni Issues Advisory Regarding Recent Solicitations

White Plains, New York - The Office of the Westchester County Clerk has been informed that homeowners have recently been receiving notices from private companies offering to retrieve a copy of their deed and other property information upon payment of a “processing fee” of $89.  This is a reminder that a copy of your recorded deed can be easily obtained from the Land Records Division of the Office of the Westchester County Clerk at a fraction of the cost.

County Clerk Idoni also advises:

  • You have the right to get a copy of your recorded deed from the Land Records Division of the Office of the Westchester County Clerk without employing a private service or paying a processing fee.
  • The usual cost for a certified copy of a recorded deed from the County Clerk’s Office is $5.00, and an uncertified copy may be less than $2.00.
  • Don’t be persuaded by official-looking mailers.  If your deed has been recorded in the County Clerk’s Office, the recording is valid whether or not you have a copy in your possession.
  • To determine whether your deed is recorded in the County Clerk’s office, visit Westchester Records Online at wro.WestchesterClerk.com or visit our office and use the free public viewing terminals to view the actual document image.
  • Property records are available for inspection, copying, and certification at the Land Records Division of the County Clerk’s Office. Land Records staffers are here to help you.  Take advantage of their knowledge and expertise by visiting or calling our staff at (914) 995-3094.
