Welcome to the Office of the Rockland County Clerk, where you will find online access to records, extensive information about our services, downloadable forms, and useful links. Please feel free to contact us if we can be of assistance. We look forward to serving you!
Paul Piperato
County Clerk


Beginning in 2015, we will be putting into operation an electronic SaleScan system. This system will utilize the barcode located on the RP-5217 form, thus enabling the County Clerk's Office to electronically transmit the data contained in the barcode directly to New York State ORPTS.

*We will not accept ANY handwritten RP-5217 forms once this system is implemented.*

With the exception of sale price and sale contract date or date of sale/transfer, all established and known information must be filled in prior to the closing. This is the information that will auto-populate once the barcode is scanned. As each form will have it's own unique barcode, you will no longer be able to use reproduced, self-created,  or blank forms on which information is handwritten or typed in. RP-5217 forms and their related documents will be rejected for recording if it is determined the barcode information does not correspond with the information on the form itself.

The form must be accessed via the RP-5217-PDF homepage: From this website, you can access the form for download, as well as Adobe installation (if needed), Instructions, FAQs, filing information, Statutes and General Information.

Please begin to prepare for this new system for January 2015. If you currently have forms completed in anticipation of a closing, it is highly suggested that they be recreated using the link above. Please be aware that they may be rejected if submitted after the start date if not completed through the link.   Please revisit the County Clerk's Office homepage for updates to the official start date

WARNING TO RESIDENTS: Rockland County Clerk Paul Piperato advises property owners to beware of a deed copy scam. The County Clerk's office has received calls from concerned property owners about communications that they've received from "New York Retrieval, Inc" offering to secure a certified copy of the deed to their property for a fee of nearly $60.00. This is about 10 times what it would cost to obtain a certified copy directly from the Clerk's office, and non-certified images can be viewed for free online.
