Subscribe to fraud alerts

Property and identity fraud are a nationwide problem.  By filing fake deeds, scammers appear to own property, and can fraudulently rent or sell the property without the knowledge of the true owner. Your Clerk and Comptroller, Karen E. Rushing, offers tools to help you protect yourself, and issues alerts about schemes where impersonators act like Clerk or Comptroller employees in an attempt to defraud citizens.  By signing up for the Clerk and Comptroller’s Property Fraud Alert Service, you will receive an email whenever a document is recorded in Sarasota County using your personal or business name. Notifications are sent within 48 hours of the document being recorded, alerting you so you can look up the documents through public records, or dispute through law enforcement. Registration is simple and free.

Virtual Property Inspections

To help navigate these uncertain times and to protect the health and safety of property owners and our staff, we are offering the option for virtual inspections in place of an in-person inspection. Inspections are required for properties with recent building permits, recently sold properties or at the request of the property owner to verify a deficiency or condition impacting value.

For more information, visit our Inspections & Property Imagery page.

Street-Level Imaging Project

The need for current property imagery in the appraisal process has never been more critical than in these uncertain times. We have contracted with iLookabout, Inc. to collect street-level images for each property in the county.  The project will take place in October and November of this year. iLookabout drivers will be canvassing the county in clearly marked vans with cameras mounted on the roof.
