Suffolk County Clerk Departments & Services

Welcome to the Suffolk County Clerk's Online Records

It gives the Suffolk County Clerk's Office great pride and pleasure to offer you, for the first time, online access to land records. This site contains information on land records recorded and imaged into the Suffolk County Clerk's Office Imaging System from 1987 to present.

Since 2000, this County Clerk's Office has modernized the department thanks to the internet, document imaging system and the progressive thinking of our County Clerk.  By converting millions of paper documents into electronic images, land records are not only decreasing their space needs but are also finding new and better ways to serve the residents of this county.  Remote access to this information can provide round-the-clock availability for those who don't have time or the resources to come to the Clerk's Office during business hours.   

The County Clerk's Office has linked its existing imaging system with the Internet, giving any customer with a PC access to the information captured on approximately 2.5 million documents. For Judy Pascale, that's giving efficient access and customer satisfaction to hundreds of people querying documents on a daily basis.

As always, you are invited to visit our office where copies of all land transactions within the county are located from 1857 to the present. Our staff is ready to assist you should you have any difficulties.
