We continue to operate with very limited staff in accordance with the Governor’s orders.  Documents are processed in the order they are received.  Please use the following procedures to utilize the services of our office.

The New York State Legislature and Governor recently enacted legislation amending NYS Real Property Law §291.

The law requires the Office of the County Clerk to notify residential property owners when a conveyance is recorded for said property. The law also authorizes a fee to be assessed for the notification, which will be $10.

This will only apply to residential deeds effective March 11,2020.


I am delighted that you have chosen to visit the County Clerk’s online office. Please note that Nassau County land documents are now available to search online for your convenience.

The County Clerk is an office created by the New York State Constitution, serving as Clerk of the Supreme and County Courts and as an agent for state and federal governments. In addition, the Clerk is responsible for recording documents relating to real property located in Nassau County and maintains the official index of real property ownership.

As County Clerk, my primary objective is to continue to implement strategies to promote real-time services and facilitate enhanced access to serve the residents of Nassau County. We constantly are working to strip away layers of bureaucracy, improve access to official records, and streamline operations while containing costs.

The Nassau County Clerk’s Office offers a variety of services to assist the courts, legal professionals, and the public. We process hundreds of millions of dollars per year in transactions and have many statutory duties. I hope our website is informative and that this office processes your transaction to your satisfaction.
