Consumer Alert for County Homeowners 

County homeowners are receiving letters from companies offering to sell them a certified copy of their deed, at prices often ranging between $50 and $100.

Per Florida law, your deed is a public record and is permanently maintained and preserved by our Division's Recording Section. These records are available online 24/7 and in most cases, when viewing your deed online, we provide links to related Property Appraiser and Tax Collector data relevant to that property." More...
