Florida Statute119.071provides that certain records held in public trust are confidential and exempt from public inspection under specific conditions.
Confidentiality of property records is not automatic. You must apply for confidential status. Following approval, specific property information maintained at this office will be placed in confidential status, made unavailable to the public, and excluded from our public website.
IMPORTANT: Approved confidentiality with the Property Appraiser's office does not automatically establish confidentiality with other agencies, such as the Clerk of Court, Supervisor of Elections, Tax Collector, or any other government agency, business, or entity that maintains records related to you, your relatives, and/or your activities (e.g. marriage, building permits, automobile registration, etc.) While the Property Appraiser will notify Brevard County Address Assignment, you must request confidentiality with other agencies and businesses to establish confidentiality with them.
Proof of qualifying employment must be provided to the Property Appraiser’s office together with any required certifications.
