What are Property Records?
Property records are the legal documents about land or homeownership. Property records can be tax records, appraisal documents, reports from auditors, land records, and even lien documents.
These documents are considered public record matters, which means they may be accessible by anyone wishing to learn more about a property. Consulting them becomes necessary in several cases, such as in the event of a boundary line dispute, lien, inheritance, or will disputes.

Types of property records
Property records refer to a group of homeownership documents such as:
- Property Tax Records: These are documents that display how much money was paid in taxes by previous owners. Property Tax records also show the lot size, the value, and what form of structure it is.
- Deeds Records: A deed document describes who owns the land (legally). It also reports on the type of land that it is, i.e., a plot, commercial, apartment, etc. Within deed records, you will see the owners' names, home addresses, and cell numbers.
- County Appraiser Records: Documents on a land appraisal or land valuation may also be available for viewing as part of the public record. They may indicate the real property's estimated value (the land and the structures upon it). Properties apprisal happens approximately every three years when a new owner purchases new construction or the property.
- Auditor Records: Auditor records focus on information that is about ownership transfer, property lines, assessment records, and tax revenue.
- Lien Records: These are records that a property owner cannot pay. There are two types of lien records such as involuntary and voluntary. Involuntary is when a landowner cannot pay his dues. Voluntary is similar to mortgages.
- Land Records: These are documents that have reports on U.S. government public and or private land. These will display any past issues with the ground. The owner's names will be included, such as age, birth location, and whether they are a U.S. citizen.
- County Assessor Records: These records will give an estimate for the property or land. Assessors can look at various properties simultaneously, such as whole neighborhoods, complexes, and more. The records of this assessment get put in the public records.
How can you access property documents?
Property reports hold extreme value. This reason is that they contain information such as the property's worth and past owners' contact information. These documents could be online for people to look up. But if not, you will need to visit your county records department. This action will require you to pay a fee.
