Hey AF-
Just received a Land appraisal for a lot for sale.. unable to locate any County Data whatsoever on this thing. They sent me over the legal and I also have a survey.. what do we put for county data info, "N/A"?? Any thoughts?

Was the survey or deed recorded in the county ? If so maybe you do have county records : )

Sounds like a trip to the appraisal district to look at their maps. May be a cut-out of a larger tract.

No need to identify the property before you appraise it.
Or is there? :cautious:

You have a legal and survey, plenty to identify the subject.

Now whether or not its been recorded with the county is another issue. If after consulting with the county you find no recorded info, put None in the box and move on.

One can't record a deed to a lot unless the subdivision itself has been approved and its plat recorded - at least 'round 'chere.

In my area, you can sell by metes and bounds without a plat as long as the lot has never been platted. In fact, some older plats permit subdivision by metes and bounds.

I understand. But, 'round chere' every parcel put to record must have a tax/parcel ID number. Some divisions of property (a tract of more than 5 acres being sold off of a larger tract, for example) can be sold with a metes and bounds description, but before the Register(s) will accept that deed for recordation, the assessor's office must provide a tax ID (map and parcel number).
