** County Clerk Covid 19 response - updated 07/27/2020 **
The County Clerk's Office is still recording documents, with the following clarifications:
* The office is now open to the public. We are not permitting closings in our office, and customers can no longer complete blank forms here. Documents must be completed before coming into the office or worked on elsewhere.
We still will have a dropbox outside our office door for documents to be dropped off.
* Documents also can be mailed to us or sent to us via e-recording.
Please read our Frequently Asked Questions prior to contacting us.
**NOTE: As of March 13, 2020 there is a $10 increase to the cost of recording deeds for residential property in New York State. This increase allows for the notification of grantors that a transaction has taken place that affects their ownership of real property, as per an amendment to Section 291 of the Real Property Law. This increase will NOT apply to commercial or agricultural property.**
