How do I acquire a new address?
New addresses are assigned by your local zoning offices. Please see the attached list that will provide you with the contact information for your specific zoning office. Our office is responsible for updating the 911 address system once all steps have been completed.
How do I locate my property lines or pins?
Trumbull County does not provide any surveying services. You can use our property search from the Auditor’s website or visit our office and we can make a map that will show an APPROXIMATION of where the property boundaries are. Or you can contact a land surveyor and they will locate the pins or property lines for you.
What does it mean if my deed has been stamped with “Next Transfer Will Require Survey?”
A deed that has a “Next Transfer Will Require Survey” stamp means that the description does meet the minimum requirements of the Trumbull County Conveyance Standards and upon “Next Transfer” you will be required to hire a surveyor to survey your property.
Can GIS/Tax Map provide a list or recommend any land surveyors?
No, the GIS/Tax Map Office does not provide a list of surveyors nor do we recommend any particular surveyor. For best results, refer to Google or the Yellow Pages.
What are the steps if I want to split my property?
1st, Contact & hire a Land Surveyor
2nd, Once the surveyor has completed his/her legal description & drawing, splits will need to be approved & stamped by the Local Zoning or Planning Commission. If the property is in a City/Village, your local City/Village will approve & stamp off. If the property is in a Township, Trumbull County Planning Commission will need to approve & sign off.
3rd, Once approved by Planning, Deed with Surveyor’s Legal Description attached as “Exhibit A” and Original Drawing need to be taken & dropped off at GIS/TaxMap Department. Here it will be reviewed in a 1-week turnaround time (subject to change).
Can I still use a Survey that was not completed in the current year?
Yes, but it must have/meet current standards
Must have the Original Legal Description & Original Drawing
Must Close. If it does not and surveyor is still practicing, we can call & have corrections made. If Surveyor is no longer practicing, we will not be able to accept survey.
Must meet current standard of conveyance
Does Trumbull County GIS/Tax Map do any pre-approval work?
No, we do not perform any pre-approval work. The only exception to this rule is with Certificate of Transfer’s. We will review these before they are signed by the judge to prevent going through the amending process.
