Asked by Woody2011, Greenwich, NY Tue Jan 11, 2011

There is a very nice home sitting empty and would like to know how to find out how to see the deed so we can hopefully contact the owner about purchasing the home...

First of all, states differ in how they handle deeds--sometimes the differences are dramatic. Information from states other than New York State is not relevant to your query.

The house isn't necessarily a foreclosure, or bank-owned. We don't know. It could be an estate matter, or there were renters who moved out, and it is temporarily empty.

To find the owner, you can begin by visiting the website below, and call the tax assessor, Colleen Adamec:


The identity of the owner can be just a first step. If the property is owned by a corporation (Inc. or LLC), then it can be difficult to get a human being on the phone. If you send a letter, send it certified mail return receipt requested so you know it was delivered, at least. Best of luck!
