The property maps represented on this site are compiled from information maintained by your local county Assessor’s office and 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 but are not conclusive evidence of property ownership in any court of law. 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.
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. Here is a link to contact information for local Assessor offices in Tennessee.

You must first choose a county to search within from the drop down menu.
Next, you must select the search type:
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 more narrow 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" a search value of "Smith J" will both return Smith John in the results. The more information you provide, the more narrow 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. Note the example above the text box.
Subdivision Name: This will search the parcels in the selected county for 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 more narrow the result set will be. The results will be grouped by Subdivision name and ordered by address within each group.
Lastly, you must enter the search value appropriate to the search type.
Search Results: Multiple results returned from one of the four Parcel-Related Searches will show here while the map zooms to the extent of all of the results. The results will appear in a table showing the parcel number, owner, and address of each piece of property that matches the search criteria. Subdivision search results will be grouped by Subdivision name and will be ordered by address. Moving your mouse over each result in the table will highlight the corresponding property on the map. Clicking on a result in the table will zoom the map to that property and show detailed ownership information in the Property Detail section below.
Property Detail: Clicking on a result in the grid or clicking the identify tool () on the toolbar and then clicking a property on the map will show the detailed ownership information in this section. The owner name (and additional owner if applicable), address, parcel number, deeded acreage (if available), calculated acreage, subdivision and lot (if applicable) will show here. A button called "Export PDF of this map" will open up a new window showing a pdf document that you may save to your computer or print using your regular browser print functionality (Note: if you have a pop-up blocker enabled on your browser, it may block the pdf from showing.
