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

The County Clerk's website indicates:

To search for a land document, visit Westchester Records Online to determine whether the document you are searching for is recorded in the Office of the Westchester County Clerk.  If the document is recorded in our office and you wish to obtain a copy of it, you can pay a daily user fee to view it online, visit our office, or request a copy of the document  by mail.

Tax Maps

CAI Technologies (best source for tax maps)

CAI Technologies is the Town's tax map maintenance company and their site has the most recent tax map information.  

Parcels can be searched by owner, address or parcel ID (section/block/lot):

After typing part of the address into the search bar and  clicking the [Find Address] button, you will see the tax map for the specific parcel:

Other map layers are available.  Some of the other maps include contour, community facilities, FEMA (flood), sewer, school, water district, fire district, and more.  

To confirm what school district a parcel is located in, it is recommended to call the school district to confirm (school districts are listed on the Our Jurisdictions page).

Flood maps may also be searched on FEMA website:  https://msc.fema.gov/portal

CAI also has measuring tools and individual tax maps can be easily printed.  There is an abutters tool to generate mailing labels needed for an abutter notices.

GIS

Westchester County's Tax Parcel Viewer also allows you to view tax parcels and owner information.  Users can identify local parcel data by address, print key (a/k/a section/block/lot), or owner name (if available). Users can also print maps, export a query result, and generate mailing labels needed for abutter notices.

Radius / Abutter Searches

Please refer to your Village Building Department for the radius search criteria and instructions.  

Once the appropriate abutting properties have been identified, you MUST cross check most recent assessment roll and/or on the SDG Imagemate Online property data search for the current owner and their mailing address, which may be different from the property address.

Please note that there are radius/abutter search tools on our CAI tax map website and the Westchester County GIS Department's Municipal Tax Parcel Viewer, noted above.  Please refer to the specific websites for instructions.  Both websites allow you to print mailing labels of the parcels identified in the radius/abutter search.

Tips on Searching for a Parcel
Picture

Depending on the browser you are using, you normally can search a .pdf document by clicking [Edit] and [Find].  In the find box type in part of an owner name (last name only is recommended) OR part of an address (street number plus first 4+ letters of street name).

The more information you put in the find box, the more restrictive the search, the less likely you will find what you are looking for.  Do not include street, drive, circle, place, etc. in the street name.
