Municipal Lien Certificates

A municipal lien certificate is issued by the Town Treasurer and states the amount of property taxes that are assessed against a particular piece of property.

Whenever someone buys property or refinances, a Municipal Lien Certificate is routeinely recorded along with the new deed or mortgage.  By recording a Municipal Lien Certificate, the property owner's liability for unpaid taxes is limited to those listed on the certificate. 

A Municipal Lien Certificate Request Form may be obtained by clicking 'Documents' on left side of the screen. Please return the Form along with a check for the appropriate amount and a self-address stamped envelope to the Treasurer's Office.
