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.

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..”

NYC ACRIS Enhancement

Posted By Tommy Tafuri, Wednesday, October 14, 2015
Updated: Wednesday, October 14, 2015

The City Register’s Office has recently added a new feature that will allow the industry to calculate recording fees for documents submitted to its offices.


From the ACRIS Main Screen  please click the “Calculate Taxes/Fees” tab.


From there click on the “Fees” tab and you will be able to calculate with accuracy the cost of recording most, if not all your documents.

The City Register has added this calculator because of the recent requirements (by lenders, the CFPB and the DFS) that require the exact cost of recording documents to be reflected at the closing.

In addition thereto, for members that still wish to calculate recording fees without the help of a program,  a formal list of recording charges have been made more easily available on the Department of Finance’s website. Go to and click on the “fees and requirements” tab.


(See attached file)

We hope you find the improvements helpful and we thank the City Register’s Office for helping us meet some of the regulatory challenges facing our industry.
