Pinellas County Code Enforcement is responsible for enforcing codes in the unincorporated areas of the county. Residents residing in one of the 24 municipalities should contact their town or city directly for assistance. Check my location.
Code Enforcement is important for the health and safety of all residents and helps maintain quality standards that are important to achieve the highest property values possible. Code Enforcement strives to achieve voluntary compliance if a violation exists. In many cases issues may arise when a resident faces unexpected hardships such as illness or unemployment. Be neighborly – check first to see if you may be able to help.
Requests for Pinellas County Code Enforcement liens can be made one of two ways:
- In compliance with Florida Statutes, section 119.07, public records may be requested and are subject to applicable statutory fees for searching, retrieving, and providing the documents. All non-exempt and non-confidential records, if any, will be provided responsive to the specific request. A public records request may be limited to the documents maintained by the Pinellas County Code Enforcement Division (CED), depending upon the scope of the request. Requestors must request other agency documentation directly from those agencies. Public records request
- For a fee of $60, a Pinellas County Code Enforcement lien search can be requested. The lien search process involves examining all liens imposed through CED and investigating any active violations on the property on file with CED. Staff cross-references search results for accuracy and may provide additional documentation if necessary. The CED lien search is an optional service provided by the CED for your convenience only. The search will not capture liens or violations imposed by agencies or entities other than the CED and is not a substitute for a title search. To continue with a lien search, visit the Pinellas County Access Portal and select Code Enforcement.
