TRENTON, NJ - Vital information for almost every property in Mercer County's 12 municipalities can now be found online, according to Mercer County Clerk Paula Sollami Covello.
At a training held by Sollami Covello and Matthew Lawson, Principal Planner for Mercer County on May 30, employees and property searchers learned about the new Property Information Portal (PIP) which serves various purposes such as providing a land records management system. The program, officials said, was designed in collaboration with several other Mercer County offices.
Signing up for the PIP is free and available to members of the public with an email address by clicking here. Users can search for Mercer County properties by addresses, names of owners, and parcel numbers, or by specifying a search area by using the “Search by Shape” feature. Readily accessible information about properties include the year a property was built, a description of the structure and surrounding land, appraised values, sales history, and much more.
In addition to the Property Information Portal, property searchers can visit the Mercer County Clerk’s office at 209 South Broad Street, Trenton in person. The office contains books and property maps dating back to 1838.
For more information on how to search for property records, contact the Mercer County Clerk's Office (609) 989-6465 or by visiting them online.
