Welcome to the Volusia County Property Appraiser Website

It's Spring and a Time for New Beginnings!

Spring is a time when people buy a new home. Here is a brief description of our deed process and what happens when you purchase that new place.

When a property is purchased, the new ownership is not shown that same day on our website. Many factors influence when the new ownership will be reflected.

When a sale occurs, the deed must be recorded at the offices of the Clerk of Court. The Clerk records and then processes the incoming deed and all other sale documents, such as a mortgage. They are then released to the Property Appraiser's office (we receive about 200-250 documents per day).

Our Deeds staff enters all the information into our computer system. They process deeds, marriage certificates, death certificates, foreclosures, timeshares, condominium declarations, subdivisions and anything else related to changes in property ownership.

The entire process can take up to two to four weeks from closing to appearance on our website. If you have any questions, please contact us any time.


Sincerely yours,

Larry Bartlett
Volusia County Property Appraiser
