Public records requests, pursuant to Chapter 119, Florida Statutes are typically for information that is not readily available on the website, or may require extensive use of information technology, research and/or clerical/supervisory assistance. Public records requests can be obtained as follows:
- By mail: Martin County Property Appraiser, Attn: Records Custodian, 3473 SE Willoughby Blvd., #101, Stuart, FL 34994
- In person: Martin County Property Appraiser, 3473 SE Willoughby Blvd., #101, Stuart, FL 34994
- By phone: (772) 288-5608
Pursuant to Chapter 119, Florida Statutes you do not have to provide your name or explain why you are making a request for public records. You are also not required to submit a request for public records in writing. However, for records that are not readily available and require more extensive searches, it may help facilitate your request if you choose to provide a method for us to communicate with you to ensure you receive the exact records you seek promptly. To help us provide you the best response to your request, please carefully consider the scope and volume of information that will be useful to you. Very broad requests can take longer to fulfill and may become costly to produce.
Should a request incur extensive use of information technology or clerical/supervisory resources, or copy expenses, charges may be imposed in accordance with section 119.07 Florida Statutes. If so, you will be provided an estimate of cost, which will require your approval before producing the records. Once you approve, you will be contacted as soon as the requested records become available, and payment in full via cash or check will be required prior to the release of the records.
