Deeds, Surveys, and Mortgage Satisfactions

← Back to Departments Overview

Deeds

The Assessment Office does not prepare deeds.  You need to retain an attorney to have a deed prepared or modified.  We cannot change, add or delete an owner's name from our records unless there is a recorded deed evidencing that change.

As a service to the taxpayers, the Town has made a diligent attempt to maintain and preserve deeds, some of which date back to the 1600’s.

Copies of deeds may be available and can be provided to the owner of the property ONLY for a fee of $.25 per page.  Please note that we may or may not have some of the older historic deeds.

For all others, copies of deeds may be obtained through:

Westchester County Clerk's Office
Land Records Division
110 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.
White Plains, NY 10601

(914) 995-3080

What is an Assessment Roll?

2019 Tentative Assessment Roll

2019 Assessment Change Notices

An assessment roll lists basic assessment information for every parcel in a municipality at a specific date.  More detailed property information may be found in our online Parcel Data Search page.

Essentially the "roll" is a printed snapshot in time of the Town's assessment database.  Before the electronic revolution, assessment rolls were printed in large books consisting of thousands of pages.  Nowadays, assessment rolls are available on any municipality's home page in searchable .pdf format (see tips on searching the assessment roll).

The roll includes such basic information as parcel ID (section/block/lot), owner, property address, owner mailing address, assessed value, exemptions, and more.  If you want to learn more about the specific entries in a sample assessment roll, please visit the NYS Department of Tax and Finance's sample excerpt from an assessment roll.

All assessing units publish tentative and final assessment rolls  annually.  In The Town of Rye, the tentative roll is published on June 1st every year. At that  time, you can check your assessment, market value and  related information, as  well as review the assessments of other  properties in the community.

Since the Town of Rye assesses at 100% of market value it is important that you check your assessment annually when the tentative roll is published on or about June 1st.  Grievance Day is always the 3rd Tuesday in June.

Following publication of the TENTATIVE assessment roll, property owners have  the opportunity to contest their assessments.  Visit our "Is Your Assessment Fair?" page.

After making any necessary adjustments, the FINAL assessment roll is published on September 15th every year.

Each year, property tax bills are based on the information on the final assessment roll.

For specific information regarding tax bills, please contact the Town's Receiver of Taxes at 914-939-3558.
