The following persons or groups might have a copy to your deeds:
-County or city clerk
-Attorney at time of closing
-Bank, especially if you have a pending mortgage
-Land registry

Non-official offers would seem fishy if you were requested. ACRIS is the system used in New York City and is free to use.

Best way is the county clerk's office. Don't respond to non-official offers.

Hi Gloria,
There is a scam going on in Central Ohio right now where there are companies offering to provide you with a certified copy of your deed for $150 (or more). This is crazy, and the other responders are correct - you can obtain from your lender, the court house or attorney/title company that handled your closing.

CALL YOUR ATTY WHO WAS AT YOUR CLOSING OR GO TO THE COUNTY CLERK OFFICE.

Hi Gloria, If your deed has been registered with city records- just go onto nyc.gov- type in Acris- begin using acris- you can get an image of your deed. You can look up either by your address or block and lot. If you have a problem Terry 718-614-3167 or email TKorahais@elliman.com

Hi Gloriaglrpla,

If you have a mortgage the bank will have a copy of the deed. Also, depending upon where you live you will be able to go to the county clerks office, or if you are in Manhattan, or one of the surrounding boroughs there may be a copy on ACRIS at http://a836-acris.nyc.gov/Scripts/Coverpage.dll/index.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Hi Gloria,

Go to http://a836-acris.nyc.gov/Scripts/Coverpage.dll/index

Click on "find address and parcel" to get you block and lot or you can search by your name.

From there you should be able to pull up all the information on your house, and hopefully you can print out your deed, mortgage and any other documents listed .

Sincerely,
Trevis
