The Ulster County Clerk is announcing that deeds and mortgages will be made available to be searched and found online beginning September 1st. Although making these records online is a welcomed advance, the $50/month subscription fee is a bit prohibitive. Apparently, a one-time access fee will be $5 for those who do not want to subscribe on a monthly basis.
Since these records are public, I’d love to see Ulster County make them available as a service to its citizens in an online format without a fee. For Realtors who are not so close to Kingston and currently have to travel to the county building, having these important real estate documents available and easily accessible online would save them lot of time and expense.
