TOMS RIVER – Ocean County Residents that are interested in tracing their property ownership records are invited to “Searching the Deed Room”.

April is National County Government month and the Ocean County Clerk’s Office is offering a free service to get more information on your property records.

The workshop, hosted by the Ocean County Clerk, is scheduled for Saturday, April 27th, 2019 from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and will take place in the deed room in the Ocean County Clerk’s office in the Ocean County Court House.

“Residents are unaware of how much information they have access too, and even how to look up their own property records,” says Ocean County Clerk Scott M. Colabella.

Colabella goes on to say that this even gives people an opportunity to learn firsthand on how easy it is to access this kind of information and just how much they have at their convenience.

Attendees will also be provided with information on how to register for the County Clerk’s Property Alert Service. This service enables property owners to receive electronic notifications when documents pertaining to their property are recorded with the County Clerk.

To register, send an email to Ocean County Clerk Scott M. Colabella at scolabella@co.ocean.nj.us or call 732-929-2018.
