Property title question:

Subject:  Title Question

Hello: I just had a general question. I am the executor of a property that had a tax lien foreclosure. I paid it off and was issued the cancellation/release paperwork. Does it still appear on the title report until there is new activity like a new deed etc? I am confused because I still see it on the title report I did even though it was already discharged. Thank you for your assistance with this issue.

Thanks,

Sharon

 

Answer:

Sharon,

If the release/satisfaction was not properly recorded, that would explain why it’s not on the report. Does your copy show a recorder’s stamp? Let us know and we can help you proceed to make sure that it is.

It appears from the Tax Lien Discharge that the original tax lien was recorded on May 11, 2016 with the city registrar’s office, but I do not see any recording information (Queens county or city registrar) for the Tax Lien Discharge. If you went to the Queens county recorder’s office, then a recorded copy of the Tax Lien Discharge should include a stamp or separate page/receipt with the recording date and the docket number.

I don’t have a copy of the lien report you ordered from our company. Does it reflect the original tax lien but not the discharge? Would you mind forwarding a copy of our lien report if you have it. (The reports are sent from the main office and I’m in client services so I don’t have a copy of any documents you received from us).

I look forward to hearing from you. The important thing is that you have the Tax Lien Discharge. Sometimes we have clients who have paid a tax lien or a mortgage, but have no paperwork. Still, you want that information to reflect correctly on any public records report so hopefully we can help you get to the bottom of this.
