Title book
Real Property (RPP) CHAPTER 50, ARTICLE 12
§ 395. Title book. The registrar shall keep a book or books to be
known respectively as the "title book", wherein he shall enter all first
and subsequent "original" certificates of title by binding or recording
them therein, with appropriate blanks for the entry of memorials and
notations prescribed by this article. Said book shall be of about the
size of the conveyance libers, now used in county clerks' and registers'
offices. Each certificate shall constitute a separate leaf of such book.
About two inches of each leaf on the binding edge shall be kept blank on
both sides, to facilitate rebinding. At such times as may be proper, the
registrar may rebind the certificates in new volumes or title books,
containing respectively cancelled and uncancelled certificates. All
memorials and notations, that may be entered in the title book under the
terms of this article, shall be entered upon the leaf constituting the
last certificate of title of the property to which they relate. In the
county of Suffolk, if a microfilm system for retrieval and display of
the title certificates is used, libers may be stored in a location not
accessible to the public. Whenever the term "certificate of title" is
used in this article it shall be deemed as including all memorials or
notations thereupon noted.
