My name is Courtney Edwards and I am a beginner wholesaler in NY. I am currently trying to compile a list of absentee owners in NY. I saw a message that you left in a board in reference to NYC Finance and the ACRIS system and I am hoping since you referenced the site you will be able to give me some assistance.

This release was posted in a legal forum to which I subscribe. I only posted it here because of concerns of people getting mortgages for free and clear properties they do not own.
