Lien Lawsuit and Judgment Searches

Under the new rules, all sellers and transferors must provide to the TLC a New York State UCC lien search, together with a lawsuit and judgment search for all counties in which the seller/transferor has been domiciled for the shorter of either five years prior to the transfer, or the period of actual ownership. The results of these searches must be submitted to the TLC together with an affidavit regarding these searches, signed by both the buyer and seller.

Notice of Proposed Claim Amount

If outstanding, unresolved tort claims against the seller are identified (which typically, but not always, arise from collisions involving the taxicab), the medallion may not be transferred until each claim is evaluated, and an escrow established for any amount of the claim that exceeds the medallion’s insurance coverage. The seller/transferor and the claimant may agree on an escrow amount at any time, but the seller/transferor can begin the formal process to have the claim evaluated by giving notice to the claimant.
