Every state in the United States of America has an unclaimed property law. Government agencies and other organizations are required to send unclaimed property to the state of a property owner’s last known residence. That state will hold the property until the rightful owner is located. Unclaimed property includes uncashed checks, funds from tax deed sales or, other property like jewelry or coins.
The Orange County Comptroller’s office sends unclaimed Orange County Comptroller and Orange County Commission property to the State of Florida and other states every year.
We encourage all Orange County residents and businesses to regularly check the State of Florida Unclaimed Property website to see whether the State of Florida is holding any property that might belong to you. A link to that website is below.
