Martin County Property Appraiser Office Cautions
New Property Owners About Solicitation Letters
Stuart, FL – The Martin County Property Appraiser’s Office cautions property owners about solicitation letters periodically mailed to residents. These letters are being targeted to new property owners and encourage them to pay a service fee for a copy of their recorded deed and a Property Profile, which includes property information such as legal description, parcel ID number, assessment, and tax information.
Below is a sample solicitation letter. In this instance, a $89.00 service fee is charged for this information.
IMPORTANT: All this property information can be obtained for FREE from the Martin County Property Appraiser’s website (pa.martin.fl.us) and a copy of your recorded deed can be obtained from the Martin County Clerk of the Circuit Court & Comptroller’s website (martinclerk.com). You do not have to pay for these services.
“With such an active real estate market, new property owners may feel this is a necessary expenditure. It is not.” said Martin County Property Appraiser Jenny Fields. “In addition, I caution property owners that these data reports can be inaccurate. It is always best to call, visit or email our Office if you have questions about your property and we will be happy to provide you the information you need.”
