Need Your Deed?

by Press Release-Burlington County | Feb 16, 2007
Need Your Deed? Burlington County Clerk Phil Haines is advising all county homeowners that his office has received numerous phone calls and inquiries from property owners who are being sent a direct-mail mass solicitation from a private company offering to provide them with a certified copy of their deed at a cost of $69.50.

The name of the company listed on the letterhead of the solicitation is “National Deed Service, Inc.” with a Pennsylvania Avenue, Washington, DC address and a Toll-free telephone number. The letter alerts property owners to the fact that their “deed was recorded by the Burlington County Clerk” and the federal government “recommends that property owners should have a certified copy of their deed.” The letter goes on to instruct homeowners that with a payment of $69.50 a certified copy of their recorded deed can be obtained from this company.

Haines wants all Burlington County homeowners to know that this company is in no way affiliated with the County Clerk’s Office. Moreover, they can obtain a certified copy of their deed at anytime, at their convenience, from his office for the cost of only $1.50 per page plus a $10.00 certification charge.

“No Burlington County property owner needs to use a private company for a certified copy of their recorded deed,” stated Haines. “We do want to let homeowners, especially members of our senior population, to know that a service already exists here at the Clerk’s Office and for a much more reasonable cost.”

Homeowners interested in obtaining a certified copy of their deed in person at the County Clerk’s Office should come to the office located on the ground floor of the seven story Courts Building at 49 Rancocas Road in Mount Holly during regular office hours. The Clerk’s office is open from 8:00 am to 7:00 pm on Monday and 8:00 am to 4:00 pm on Tuesday through Friday.

Property owners who cannot obtain a copy of their deed in person may send a letter of request to the County Clerk’s Office, but are asked to first call the Burlington County Clerk’s Office at (609) 265-5122 and provide their complete property address, purchase date and Block and Lot number if available, along with the full name of the owner so that they can be properly advised as to the appropriate payment information and mailing instructions.
