Search Help


  All searches are Non-case sensitive, meaning you may use all caps or lower case entries.

Owner Name: When searching for property by owner name use:
 Last Name First followed by first name or initial. You may also enter only the last name as a wildcard search.

Physical Address:
 Not sure of an address?  For example, if you know the property is located in the 4000-5000 block on  Main, just enter the number "4" in the number box,  and "Main" in the street name box.   This will return all addresses that start with the number 4 on  Main such as 4  Main, 40  Main to 49  Main, 400  Main to 499 Main, 4000  Main to 4999  Main.

 
Do not use any punctuation such as periods for abbreviations.
 Enter block number, direction, and street name in their separate boxes.
 Do not include words such as drive, street, parkway, or the like in the street name.
 
If you are unsure of the street spelling just enter the first couple of letters as a wildcard search.
