Reserve a Plat or Condo Name

Individuals, developers, and companies may reserve a name for a pending formal plat or condo project. The reservation process ensures that the name is available to the applicant for one year. The Recording Division will not accept for recording any plat, map, or subdivision of land bearing a name the same or similar to the name of any map or plat already on record in the office.
