The Suffolk County Legislature approved an amendment to Local Law 26-2016 that adds a $300.00 per document fee on all mortgage related documents. The documents that are included, but not limited to, are Mortgages, CEMAs, Assignments, Satisfactions and Spreader Agreements.
All mortgage related documents presented or re-presented for verification to the Real Property Tax Service Agency on or after January 1, 2017 must be assessed the new mortgage verification fee. This new fee is in addition to the current verification fee of $200 per lot.
