Property Located In More Than One Municipality
Grantors who transfer property located in more than one municipality must allocate the conveyance tax among the municipalities. If the Grantor presents the recorder of deeds with a certified appraisal by a licensed appraiser, setting forth the value of the specific property located in each municipality, then such figures shall be used in determining the conveyance tax.
In the alternative, the tax for each municipality may be allocated in proportion to the assessed value of the real property in each municipality. NOTE: The total assessed value will likely be different from and less than the total consideration. The assessed values are used ONLY to determine the PERCENTAGE RATIO of value, and not the actual value, which is based on the consideration paid.
Internet Access to Land Records
Internet access to land records is provided as a service to the public. Currently, images are only available for viewing and will be watermarked. In the near future, the program will be enhanced to allow for online subscriptions to allow for remote purchasing and printing using a login and password. Copies without a watermark may be purchased at the Town Clerk's office for $1.50 per page and certified for an additional $3.00 as needed.
The use of digital cameras, scanners and cell phones to capture images are strictly prohibited.
