Welcome and thank you for your question. I will be the professional that will be assisting you.
In New York City the Office of the County Clerk maintains all information on lots, ownership and dimensions among other recorded records. You would contact them at http://www1.nyc.gov/site/finance/taxes/property-data-and-lot-information.page
Please do not hesitate to ask me any additional questions that you may have with regard to this matter. If you would be kind enough to rate my service positively so I will receive credit for my work I would appreciate it. You do not need to provide a negative rating for a refund.
The site does not credit the Attorneys unless the customer rates our service positively.Thank you for your consideration. Please me know if you were unhappy with my service and I will opt out for another Attorney to assist you.
Thank you for using JA!
The only site that is guaranteed to be correct (and even the government makes mistakes) is going to the Clerks Office. They actually do have much of this information online for free. You just need to be a user in the their system. Propertyshark uses the same system they just charge you a premium.
Agreed. Propertyshark gets it directly from the State government. They charge you a premium, however you can contact the Clerk directly to gain access for free.
Take a random address***** brooklyn, ny. Where is the building size information available?
Please contact the Clerk you can access the same PUBLIC records as Propertyshark without paying them a premium.
You can gain access to the site http://http://a836-acris.nyc.gov/CP/. It has a FREE trial. Otherwise there are no sites anywhere on the web that provide this information for FREE. PropertyShark is accessing the same public records you can access online. Otherwise you would need to physically go to the City to access the information for FREE. Anything done over the internet is fee based. You can be set up with a FREE trial to see what Propertyshark is seeing.
They are mining ot though the State as they are the source of the information. That is how title companies search deeds and property records. This information comes from the government documents that collects the data.
It comes through the tax assessors office. They base taxes on, among other qualifiers, property dimensions. If you contact them they can tell you how to access the documents that you may not be seeing. When you do this online (after a free trial) you will pay a fee just as you do with propertyshark and the other similar sites. The only reason there is a fee is because of the continual updating of information for access over the internet. In person this would be FREE.
I wish there was a sit I could give you for FREE. As an Attorney I too pay a fee for accessing this type of information unless I am in the area and want to go though the records in person.
In the not to distance past we no online access an had to go to the Assessor for this information. Deeds were not available online, you need to go to the recorder's office. We have come a long way from when I started out as a new Attorney.
If you are not finding the link they can assist you. Anyone that provides this type of information online gets the information directly from the government entity that takes in the information on every property to determine property taxes, assessments, ownership, liens etc. The title companies, realtors and other services get their information from the government. Not all that long ago we had to physically pull all of the files from the treasurer, assessor and court clerks. It was time consuming and expensive. Any public information site received their information from the government entity keeping the records. You would need to check every state for their records to get a background check. I hope that makes sense. There are very few counties and major cities that are not updated this way and sites that offer their information need to physically pull the records. I cannot tell you how many times I would go to the recorders' office to pull up a chain of title or receive information from the court clerks. I am happy those days are gone. Thank you for using JA. If you would be kind enough to rate my service positively so I will receive credit for my work I would appreciate it.
Are you still with me?
