Municipal Claims Letter & Tax Certification Letter

Municipal claims letters and tax certification letters are issued to disclose that there are no municipal liens or claims against a property unless something of record has been found. Prior to issuing municipal claims letters and/or tax certification letters, all accounts with the municipality will be researched for compliance with municipal regulations and to verify that payments are up to date and all inspections are completed.  A municipal claims letter and/or tax certification letter will not be issued until the property owners have complied with the information and/or payment requests of the municipality. If you are considering selling your home, you should check with inspections to make sure all permits have been properly inspected and closed or your sales closing could be delayed.
