About Russell Muniz

The Town of Southwest Ranches is proud to announce the launch of our new CodeRED community notification system to send important alerts and time-sensitive messages to staff members and residents. Along with emergency and critical messages, the CodeRED notification system will also enhance community engagement via the release of important but non-emergency information such as road closures and trash collection schedule changes, and other Town services.

• Registration for this notification service is customized, allowing residents to choose which alerts they’d like to receive, as well as their preferred channel.
• Residents can select several different methods including landline, cell phone, email, text message, TTY, or even a combination. These alerts can be specific to streets, or neighborhoods, so individuals within affected areas are sure to receive relevant information.
• Residents and visitors can keep track of alerts in our Town with the CodeRED Mobile App, which notifies smartphone holders of real-time alerts in the area. Similar to the online registration, users choose which notifications they’d like to receive via the app.

Important Information Before You Make Any Deed Changes

We often hear from property owners — all well-intentioned — who lost or seriously compromised their valuable exemptions or Save Our Homes (SOH) protection when they made “do-it-yourself” changes to a deed.

While we always recommend you seek professional advice from a qualified attorney when making title changes, there is information on the various deed types available on our website at www.bcpa.net/deeds.asp. This information will help you better understand the key differences between the most common forms of home ownership if you still decide to risk making these changes on your own. Keep in mind these are VERY simplified explanations of some rather complicated legal issues. Your deed is a document or written legal instrument which, when executed and delivered, conveys an interest in or legal title to a property. Deed recording is the process of registering a transfer of real property with the Broward County Records, Taxes and Treasury Division.

Should you decide to prepare your own deed, it is important to ensure you have the full and complete legal description. The full legal description for your property can be found on your original recorded deed. The legal description on our website is typically an abbreviated version so you will want to confirm you have the complete legal description so we can process the deed once it has been recorded in County Records and forwarded to our office to update the property record.

Many important documents, including your deed are already available for free online at Broward County’s Records, Taxes and Treasury Division’s website. Older deeds prior to 1977 and recorded deeds utilizing social security numbers must be ordered in person or by written request. Broward County Records can be reached at www.broward.org.records or 954.831.4000.

To search County Records, simply go to https://officialrecords.broward.org/AcclaimWeb and enter the public search field. Search by the name of the homeowner and you will be shown applicable property data enabling you to retrieve and print a copy of the recorded deed. You can also find this information on our website at www.bcpa.net by simply clicking on the “book number”, located under the “sales history” chart on the property record page to link to the deed information.

If my office can ever be of assistance to you, please do not hesitate to contact me directly at 954.357.6904 or by email at martykiar@bcpa.net.

Take care,

Marty Kiar

Broward County has launched the lifesaving Yellow Dot safety program. The program is designed to assist Broward County residents and first responders in the event of an automobile crash or other medical emergency involving the participant’s vehicle. The program can help save lives by improving communication at a time when accident victims may be unable to communicate for themselves.

What is the Yellow Dot Program?
