LIEN SEARCH

Overview

When various fines, fees, or charges remain unpaid by property owners, the City can exercise its legal right to place a lien against an owner’s property to ensure the eventual collection of an unpaid amount. Interested parties, such as title companies and individuals, can request the City to check its records for outstanding liens against a property.

The City of Haines City starts on Conduits Monday, July 10th, 2017! You will be familiar with using Conduits at other cities in Florida, such as Tampa or Pinellas Park.  Similar to Tampa, the City of Haines requires searches to be purchased online in advance via credit card.  The City of Haines supports Visa and MasterCard.

Property Identification Number

You must provide the property identification number on the City’s Lien Search Request Form so the City is certain of the exact parcel you wish searched.  The property identification number is also known as the “folio” or “parcel” number.

If you do not know the property identification number for a property, you can go to the Polk County Property Appraiser’s website at www.polkpa.org and conduct a “Property Search” by either the owner name or property address.  Once the page for the property is accessed, you will find the property identification number located in the top right hand corner of the page (it is shown as “ID #”).
