2020 Lien Sale—Last Day to Pay Deadline Extended

December 11, 2020

The last day to submit a payment or enter into a payment agreement for the 2020 lien sale has been extended. During this time, DEP will continue to work with property-owners whose water and sewer liens are at risk of being sold. Property owners who received a sale warning notice must pay what they owe or enter into a payment agreement as soon as possible in order to avoid being included in the lien sale. For more information, please visit the NYC Department of Finance.

How to Pay

Due to COVID-19 and social distancing requirements, we recommend that you submit your lien sale payment online, by phone, or by mail. Lien-eligible customers who are unable to pay online (view how to pay online), by mail (view how to pay by mail) or by telephone (view how to pay by telephone), may do so in person by appointment only at one of our Customer Service Borough Offices.

If you cannot pay in full and wish to set up a payment agreement to pay off outstanding water and sewer charges, please contact 718-595-7890 or collectionsunit@dep.nyc.gov.
