This department has collected and maintained surveys of parcels within the City of Rye. These files, while extensive are not complete. As with the deeds, submissions of surveys to the assessment department is not required but suggested. If you need a copy of your survey, call to inquire if we have it on file prior to going to land records at the county. This department keeps the surveys on file for convenience to our taxpayers.
All sales and transfer records are recorded at the county level and the local level through this department. Sales data is used to establish trends in the market, average sales prices on an annual basis, comparative analysis of asking prices to sales prices again on an annual basis. Sales are recorded on individual property cards and on a street index.
