Land Records

The New Hartford Town Clerk is making searching easier. By making its records available online, you are now able to search wherever you have the Internet, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week—even during major holidays. Search from your office, from your home, or even from another state. Search at your convenience.

The Index of Land Records including images back to 1956 are available online through the Cott portal. The Index of Maps and Surveys is available online beginning 07/14/1978 and images will become available as workload permits staff to load them.  Until then, copies can be viewed and purchased in the Town Clerk's office.  You may also request copies by mail if you enclose the appropriate fee and a self addressed stamped envelope.
