County Clerk to Assist Residents Impacted by Hurricane in Replacing Lost Documents

(Mineola, NY)  Nassau County Clerk Maureen O’Connell has instituted an emergency hotline to provide aid to County residents who have been affected by the events of hurricane Sandy.  Through the hotline residents will receive assistance and information from the County Clerk’s office on how to quickly obtain replacements for lost vital papers, such as deed or mortgage documents. 

All deed and mortgage documents for property located in Nassau County are recorded and maintained at the County Clerk’s Office and only the County Clerk can issue certified copies of these records, which are legally equivalent to the original.

County Clerk O’Connell urges any residents impacted by the storm who require assistance in replacing documents to call the County Clerk hotline at 516-571-6377 for further information and to request a certified copy of their deed or mortgage documents.
