Get a copy of your property deed free from the county
County Clerk Timothy D. Tyler said today that his office is prepared to provide free copies of certified property deeds to Burlington County residents who are flood victims of Hurricane Irene.
Tyler said property owners who are dealing with flood damage and the other aftermath issues of the hurricane can call his office or that of Congressman Jon Runyan between now and the end of the year (December 31, 2011) to receive the documents.
“We fully realize that important documents are often lost or become unaccounted for in a flood disaster of this magnitude,” Tyler said. “Our intent is to make this one less item that flood victims need to address as they work to put their homes and lives back together.”
He said homeowners should call his office at 265–5122 or Congressman Runyan’s office at (856) 780–6436 to request a certified copy of their deed.
Those who call need only supply their name, property address, contact information and approximate date of purchase. Clerk’s office staff will provide certified copies. All fees will be waived.
