County Clerk Waives Fee For Deed Copies

Property owners needing the documents for insurance or FEMA claims can get copies at no cost

Property owners who have been impacted by Hurricane Sandy can get copies of their property deeds from the Ocean County Clerk's office at no charge, County Clerk Scott M. Colabella announced.

Colabella said property owners who are dealing with flood damage, and other repair work since the aftermath of the storm, and require copies of their property deeds for insurance or Federal Emergency Management Assistance (FEMA) claims can contact either the County Clerk’s Toms River office or Southern Service Center office to obtain a copy of their deed at no charge.

“Important documents, such as deeds to property, are often lost or become damaged in storms like Sandy,” Colabella said. “My office staff is ready to assist our residents in providing a copy of this document so that this is one less item they need to address as they work to put their homes and lives back together.”

Property owners contacting the Ocean County Clerk’s Office need to provide the following information to obtain a certified copy of their deed:

  • Property Owner name
  • Property address
  • Approximate date of purchase or deed transfer.

Property owners can visit the County Clerk Deed Room at the Toms River office, in the Ocean County Court House, 118 Washington St., Toms River or call 732-929-2053. Those in the southern part of the county can visit the Clerk’s Office at the Southern Service Center at 179 South Main St., Manahawkin, or call 609-597-1500.

Property owners can also send their requests via e-mail to scolabella@co.ocean.nj.us to obtain copies of their deed.

“Ocean County wants to provide as much assistance to property owners as possible,” said Freeholder John P. Kelly, liaison to the Law and Public Safety department. “Providing assistance in obtaining these important documents is one way we can help.”
