New York Lis Pendens NO LONGER PUBLIC???

General Foreclosure & Pre-Foreclosure Forums 4 Replies

I went to the New York Queens County Records Office to get a Lis Pendens list for my postcard marketing campaign and I was shocked to hear what the clerk had to say.

I was told that a couple years ago too many people were coming to the QUeens County Records Office looking for Lis Pendens that they now sell these lists to Big Companies... Essentially Lis Pendens are no longer kept at the County Records Office.

Is this correct? Is this even legal? Public Records such as Lis Pendens should be promulgated for the General Public to at least view... Am I asking the clerk the wrong questions? Please help. How can they do this?

Thanks in advance for any help.

It depends on how much work you are willing to do.

You could go, say once a week, and just look at everything filed during the previous week. NODs are filed into the public record just like deeds and mortgages.

Alternatively, you could subscribe to the legal publication for that area and get them that way.

anyone else with input on how this is possible?

taz,

do you know NY Queens' legal publication?

The Daily News has the legal notices for the NYC area including Queens.
