The Hernando County Property Appraiser's offices (Brooksville and Spring Hill) are open with limited capabilities. At the moment, our website will have certain pages or functions disabled while we continue to work through our network issues. We will still be answering phone calls and emails.
Please know that the Hernando County Clerk Information Techology Incident Response Team is still working to bring our network back to a full working order.


Our Property Search is back online, and the GIS tab is now partially working with aerials. We will continue to add features as they become available. The Pictometry Aerials are currently disabled, and we are waiting on Pictometry to make the changes required. The new environment issues are being addressed and we will continue until resolved.

When completing a property record card search, please enable pop-ups.  

For the GIS interactive map, use the Central GIS button above the property search.

For any other questions or concerns, please reach out to our office:

Our 8th Annual Animal Services Valentine’s Day collection was another huge success thanks to our wonderful staff.
Many of our staff have pets that they have adopted from there and are always extremely generous in giving back to this awesome county department.

Updated Sinkhole Classifications
We will be rewording the “Sinkhole Repaired” status to “Stabilization Permit Complete”.  These properties will be identified on our website as a Blue Triangle and the verbiage of Stabilization Permit Complete will reflect on the Parcel Details tab. 
Sinkhole Unrepaired status will remain unchanged in wording and identification (Red Triangle) and verbiage on the Parcel Details tab will be “Unrepaired Sinkhole”.
Received a nice Thank You note from this year's Leadership Hernando Group.  We always enjoy being able to talk with the group each year and participate in educating new members about Hernando County Government and what our office does.

Through a joint effort between the Property Appraiser’s office and Hernando County Association of Realtors, we have a new interactive map to help the public easily locate properties for sale in their neighborhood.  By doing a Property Search on their own address and then clicking on the new     tab, it will show properties for sale in their area.  By clicking on the actual listed property icon , a photo and brief description shows.  Click the Website link at the bottom of the description and it will direct you to the full MLS listing.

The Property Appraiser and staff had a great time at the Y.E.S bowling again this year.    Thank you to all who came and supported this event.
john3 NEW Historically Hernando Walking Tour Map

Hernando County was established in 1843. Brooksville was established in 1856 and incorporated in 1880.  The homes featured in this walking tour are some of the homes of our early families that helped make Brooksville the community it is today.

As a member of one of the earlier families that settled in Hernando County I am happy to be able to share this walking tour with you.

Our office has made a few new enhancements to our Property Search.

1.  In the GIS Map tab we now have a JPG feature that enables you to export the selected parcel (Ortho imagery with parcel lines). 

2. In the Parcel details tab we now have a print button that prints out the complete parcel details information on the compound search.  Basically, the same feature as the previous parcel search. 

3. Under the Structure tab we now have options to search for sinkholes.
