In New York the term used for deeds and mortgages and related filings is usually "Public Records" or "Recorded Documents" and they may be filed with the County Clerk, or in New York City the Department of Finance. In addition to deeds and mortgages, depending on the county, these filings may also include liens, judgments, military discharges, bonds, trusts, child support enforcement orders, business registration such as assumed or fictitious business names, power of attorney filings, financing statements, Uniform Commercial Code filings, trusts, partnership documents, leases, Wills, and more.
