About Us

KCS has been a leading abstractor and searching organization for the last half century. From its humble beginnings as a husband and wife team, to its current position as a technology forward leader in the industry, KCS continues to move forward with customer service as its primary goal. As of late, the leadership at KCS has developed and applied processes to some of today’s most complex challenges which has increased the efficiency and delivery of our work to clients and customers alike. At KCS, we are always asking “is there a better way?” Knowing what to ask upfront saves everyone time and energy. That is time and energy we rededicate to our service.

Our Team

Based out of the Mohawk Valley, the KCS team knows what to look for, what questions need answering and how to get you those answers.  The company culture focuses on working together to deliver superior service.  When you hire for talent and experience, a collaborative team naturally comes together.  No child dreams of sifting through records at the County Clerk’s office, but when the right people stumble upon this profession great things can happen. The value we place on our employees and community truly make this organization exceptional.


We can build on an existing abstract to update those records or provide documents to show the full history of the parcel noting all conveyances and encumbrances affecting the property. Every acre has a story.

Property Searching

Conducting an exhaustive search of public records ensures you can verify the title’s legitimacy, and therefore its ownership is not in question at the time of transfer.

Tax Searching

KCS has a team dedicated to providing accurate and up to date tax information.  Supplying actual data on exemptions, delinquencies and assessments.

Additional Searching

Judgment liens, pending lawsuits, surrogate court records and bankruptcy filings must be  carefully reviewed to understand what sort of impact they have on the title holder’s right to use and possess the property.
