Notice of Recorded Document

The ACRIS Notice of Recorded Document System is a registration program that is intended to provide notice to property owners when deeds, mortgages and deed- or mortgage related documents affecting an ownership interest in real property, have been recorded against a single property in the five boroughs of New York City. In addition to property owners and their agents (including child, spouse or domestic partner of owner if they are a designee), the managing agent, the property owner’s attorney, the lienor, or executors/administrators of the estate of the owner or lienor of the property may register under this program. Owners of cooperative apartments and timeshare units may NOT want to register for notification as these properties do not have unique borough, block and lot identifiers and the registrant would receive notifications affecting the entire building rather than for the particular unit of interest.

The Department of Finance assumes no liability for failure to provide the requested notice of recorded documents with respect to property for which you are registering to receive notification. The City of New York, including the Department of Finance and the Richmond County Clerk, assumes no liability for fulfilling their legal duty to record documents, even if those documents are in some instances later determined to be erroneous, fraudulent or invalid.
