Effective July 1, 2019, the definition of “home address” has been amended to include any descriptive information that may reveal a home address.
Effective July 1, 2021, the County Recorder is required to maintain the name index so spouse and children names can no longer be redacted. Additionally, you are now required to notify our office when the property sells so the redacted information can be restored.
NOTICE OF THE RIGHT OF ANY AFFECTED PARTY
TO REQUEST REMOVAL OF CERTAIN CHAPTER 119 INFORMATION OR RECORDS
Any person has a right to request that a county recorder remove, from a publicly available Internet website, information made exempt from inspection or copying under s. 119.071, F.S., or an image or copy of a public record, including an official record, if that image or copy is of a military discharge; death certificate, or a court file, record or paper relating to matters or cases governed by the Florida Rules of Family Law, the Florida Rules of Juvenile Procedure, or the Florida Probate Rules. However, grantor, grantee or party names may not be removed from the Official Records index unless the grantor, grantee or party name includes the street address, such as in a Trust or LLC. Requests must be notarized, state the statutory basis for removal, and confirm the individual’s eligibility for the exemption. To make a request contact the Official Records office by mail or in person at 109 E. Church St. Orlando Florida, 32801 or by email at ORWebsite@occompt.com
