Select Parcels

Select Parcel Widget

The Select Parcel widget allows you to select and highlight parcels on the map and maintains a table of selected parcels. You can zoom back to a previously selected parcel by clicking on a row in the table and you can export the selected parcels to a CSV file.  

Please note that owner names displayed or exported from this website may not be current.

Deeds and other documents that impact property ownership are officially recorded in the records of the Polk County Clerk of Court's Office. Once recorded, our office receives electronic copies of these documents. However, before these ownership transfers are available on our websites, they must undergo several processes, including individual document review to determine intent, mapping, qualification coding, and entry into our records.

Typically, the Property Appraiser's Deed Department takes a minimum of four to six weeks to process these transfers after recording. However, due to an unusually high volume of recorded documents, processing times have been delayed. The complexity of the transfers received can also affect this timeframe. For instance, if your document results in the division of a property, it must be sent to the Mapping Department for further review and processing.
