About

This application allows for searching and displaying property ownership and location information for 87 counties in Tennessee. It is designed to work in concert with the Real Estate Assessment Data site operated by the Comptroller of the Treasury. The following counties are not available in this application but can be found on their own internet sites: Davidson (Metro Nashville), Hamilton (Chattanooga), Knox (Knoxville), Montgomery, Rutherford (Murfreesboro), Shelby (Memphis), Unicoi, and Williamson.

Searching parcels

You can search for parcels four different ways. All four ways require you to specify the county in an effort to reduce returned results.

Parcel Number: This will search for all or part of a parcel number in the selected county. Entering only a Control Map will return all parcels that match that Control Map for the selected county. The more information you provide, the narrower the result set will be.

Owner Name: This will search the parcels in the selected county for an owner's name. You do not need to enter the entire name to search. A search value of "Smith" and a search value of "Smith J" will both return Smith John in the results. The more information you provide, the narrower the result set will be. If you are entering first and last name, enter them in the format of LASTNAME FIRSTNAME.

Property Address: This search is a text search based on the property ownership records. This is the site address of the parcel as entered by the local Assessor's office. Typically, the best results are achieved by entering only the street name without the suffix, or by entering the street name first and then the street number. Example: MAIN ST 1200.

Subdivision Name: This will search the parcels in the selected county by the name of a subdivision. You do not need to enter the entire name to search. A search value of "Sycamore" and a search value of "Sycamore Bend" will both return "Sycamore Bend" in the search results. The more information you provide, the narrower the result set will be. The results will be grouped by Subdivision name and ordered by address within each group.

Working with results

Parcel search results are limited to 500 records and are listed on the Results page. Each result title will incorporate information relevant to the search type. Clicking an individual record will display it's information, some additional links, and a "View in Map" button. The first link will display the record at the Real Estate Assessment Data site operated by the Comptroller of the Treasury. The second link will direct you to the Frequently Asked Questions page. Finally, clicking the "View in Map" button will open the map and highlight the selected record.

If the parcel you are looking for can not be found, try refining your search.

Using the map

Zooming in:

  • Using a mouse: You can zoom into the map by clicking the + (plus) button or double-clicking on the map.
  • Touch-enabled devices: Zooming in is accomplished by either touching the + (plus) button, double-tapping the map, or performing a "pinch open" gesture.

Zooming out:

  • Using a mouse: You can zoom out in the map by clicking the - (minus) button
  • Touch-enabled devices: Zooming is accomplished by touching the - (minus) button, or performing a "pinch" gesture.

Identifying parcels: Clicking, or touching, the map a single time on a visible parcel will attempt to identify it. Returned results will appear as a popup window with a Parcel ID. If more than one parcel is returned, you can scroll through the IDs with the left and right arrows. Clicking the larger arrow will open up the details about that particular parcel. The identify will not work until the map is zoomed in to the point that parcel boundaries appear.

Zooming to your current location: Clicking the button on the map will attempt zoom the map to your current location. The accuracy of the location depends on the capabilities of the device you are using.

I think my property is drawn wrong. What do I do?

Property maps, maintained by your local county Assessor's office, are a best-fit visualization of how all the properties in a county relate to one another. The property lines are determined by examining detailed property descriptions on deeds and by using surveys created by a licensed surveyor.

If you feel your property is drawn in error, you should contact your local Assessor's office and work with them to resolve the discrepancy. If you have a deed or survey of your property, that will be helpful to the Assessor's office personnel. You can find the contact information for your local Assessor at this link.

My property has the wrong owner listed. What do I do?

If you recently purchased an existing piece of property and no property lines were altered (simple change of ownership of an existing piece of property), it is likely that the information has not filtered up to our site yet. If your recent purchase (after January 1) resulted in new property lines being established (e.g. you purchased five acres out of a ten acre property), the property will not appear on our site until after the county has mailed the tax bill. This is usually around October or November.

In either case, you can contact your local county Assessor with questions about ownership. You can find the contact information for your local Assessor at this link.

My name is misspelled in the property record. How can that be corrected?

You should contact your local Assessor with any errors you believe exist in your property record information, e.g., misspelled name, wrong street address, etc.

My property record is right, but the Viewer still shows the old parcel lines. Why?

The property information available on the Viewer is provided in various forms to the State by the local county Assessors. In some cases, the geometry (line work) is maintained electronically by the local Assessor and moves quickly to the State and thus into the Viewer. In other cases, the local Assessor maintains the geometry in a paper environment and it can take several months to be converted into a digital product and incorporated into the Viewer.

Do the parcels on this website represent legal property boundaries?

No. The parcels represented here are for property tax assessment purposes only and do not represent legal boundaries of property.

How are property lines on the property maps determined, and what purpose do they serve?

Property lines along with the maps they are associated with are generated in the local county office of the Assessor of Property, and are based upon detailed property descriptions on deeds and by using surveys created by a licensed surveyor. The data is collected for property tax assessment purposes only and does not represent legal descriptions of property nor does it establish boundary lines.

Who is responsible for maintaining and correcting property maps?

In most counties in Tennessee, the local county Assessor of Property’s office is responsible for maintaining the property maps. While this Viewer makes every effort to make the best available data accessible to the public, the local Assessor’s office is always going to be the most accurate and up to date source for assessment information.
