Fall 2016 Focus on Long Island

Posted By Robert Treuber, Monday, October 17, 2016
Updated: Monday, October 17, 2016

The Land Records Committee has been very busy with fee increases proposed by the Nassau County and Suffolk County Executives.


The NYSLTA joined a coalition organized by the LI Board of Realtors, to publicly oppose the fees and the detrimental impact on the real estate market on Long Island.


Notes of a meeting with the Suffolk County Executive appear in the previous blog post.


In addition, Land Records Chair Tafuri wrote to Nassau County Clerk, Hon. Maureen O'Connell, seeking her support in opposition to the fee increases in Nassau County.  That letter is attached to this blog post.


Members with specific concerns about these developments in the Long Island counties should contact the NYSLTA Staff at 212-964-3701.

System Integrity Statement - Nassau County

Posted By Robert Treuber, Monday, January 25, 2016
Updated: Monday, January 25, 2016

Some Members have reported complications with Lenders due to concerns about the reliability of the online search system in Nassau County.


The Association has gotten assurances from the Office of the Nassau County Clerk that computerized records ranging back to 1992 are complete and reliable.


We have attached a statement to that effect, which Members may find useful in addressing such issues with Lenders and attorneys.

Fee increases pending in Suffolk County

Posted By Robert Treuber, Friday, November 6, 2015
Updated: Friday, November 6, 2015

The following information has been received from Christopher Como, Esq., Official Examiner of Title, Suffolk County Clerk's Office:


“… the Suffolk County Legislature has passed a budget that includes increased revenues based on Suffolk County Real Property Tax Services verification fee being raised from the current $60 per lot fee to $200 per lot. 


Before the fee increase can go into effect, the Legislature and County Executive will have to pass a local law to actually increase the verification fee.  Since the budget passed overwhelming, I don’t foresee any impediments to the Legislature enacting and the County Executive signing the local law increasing the fee.

At this point we are not aware of the timing of when the legislature will push forward with a new bill, however, we wanted to make you and your membership aware of the impending fee increase.  As we learn more from the legislature and the timeframe, we will update you and provide more information on how we plan to implement the new fee..”
