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.
