Judgments and Liens in New Jersey

Capturing all judgments and liens in New Jersey requires multiple steps.

  • Federal Tax Liens will only be found in the county’s land records.
  • HOA Liens can be recorded in the county’s land records, or they may be filed in superior court records.
  • All other judgments and liens, including foreclosure cases, are filed in superior court records.

Delinquent Taxes in New Jersey

Delinquent taxes sold at tax sale will be marked as "paid" in the tax records, which would cause an extreme loss should an inexperienced title searcher report them as “paid.” In reality, the taxes are not paid. Even though a lienholder has paid the taxes to the county, the real estate taxes are still owed on the property by the homeowner to the tax lien buyer.

How to find out who owns a property in New Jersey for free?

The township assessor usually has knowledge about the property ownership in New Jersey. By providing the property's location, you can often access this information at no cost. However, that option is not always easily accessible, with complications such as records showing alternative addresses, or the township involved not matching the town name in the address. The best solution would be to hire a professional company to help you with your inquiries.
