I have an address and would like to know who owns the property.
In the recorder of deeds office we index by name. We have a legal description and municipality also indexed. The physical address or the tax assessment parcel number is not usually on the documents.
We suggest you link to the Fayette County Tax Assessment Property Search for current information visit the Tax Assessment Office Mapping Room or call them at 724-430-1350 ext 229.
I need to know who currently owns the property surrounding my property.
We do have plans in the Recorder of Deeds Office. Plans are indexed by the property owner's name and municipality. Not everyone has a plan, subdivision, survey or map filed in our office. Please use this link to the Fayette County Tax Assessment Property Search , for current information visit the Tax Assessment Office Mapping Room or call them at 724-430-1350 ext 229.
Once you have found your information at the Assessment Office, make sure you have a list of names of the surrounding property owners, the Deed Book & Page numbers or Record Book & Page numbers of those deeds so you can continue to search in our office.
I need some information on subdivisions.
Subdivisions are recorded in our office. We will be glad to show you how to use our indexes to look at the ones on file. Other questions not dealing with recorded subdivisions can be directed to Planning Zoning & Community Development, or visit the Office of Planning, Zoning and Community Development on the 4th Floor Fayette County Courthouse or call at 724-430-1210.
I need to know if there is a lien or judgment on my property.
We do not file liens or judgments in our office but we do record mortgages that might be part of what you are looking for. The information you can view in our office will include the name of the person, the institution they borrowed from, the amount they borrowed, what property the mortgage is on and if the mortgage is satisfied. To find information on a lien or judgment go to Prothonotary's office on the 1st floor of the Fayette County Courthouse, or call 724-430-1272.
