Historic Protection for Florida’s Navigable Rivers and Lakes

Broward County Plats

Most of our records can be accessed online at: Public Records Search and Choose Public Search

or the direct link is:

Attached (Plat-transcript-key.pdf) is a key to transcript recording book and page for older plats that were once part of Palm Beach County and Dade County but are now part of Broward. You have to use the transcript numbers to get them online as they are not listed using their original recording info. (example: Florida Fruit Lands Company Subdivision No.2 PB 1, PG 102 PBCR would be listed under “Palm Beach Plats” PB 1, PG 1 ; PB 1, PG 2; PB 1, PG 3 ; PB 1, PG 4).
