- Recording Property-Related Documents
Access property related documents and file your documents online.
- Uniform Commercial Code Financing Statements (UCC)
The Uniform Commercial Code governs commercial transactions. These transactions reflect a security interest in personal property that is not "real estate" or "real property" such as shares of a cooperative showing ownership/mortgages, and fixture filings.
Recorded Document Notification
Sign up for the Recorded Document Notification Program so Finance can notify you, by mail or email, anytime a document is recorded against your property. This program can protect you against fraud by letting you know when a deed or mortgage-related document is recorded against your property without your knowledge. Children, spouses and domestic partners of property owners if they are a designee can also sign up for notification. In addition a managing agent, property owner’s attorney, lien holder, or executors/administrators of the owner’s estate can also sign up for notification.
