While we share your concerns regarding the possible repercussions of having information made readily available, we are obligated to maintain our records in accordance with current law. Until such time as our legislators change those laws, we should all be vigilant about what information is placed on documents we know are going to be made public. While the official records have always been a matter of public record, laws changed effective in 2002 which required all recording offices in Florida to maintain an indexed and imaged system on the website. Advance notification was made available to the public to allow them the opportunity to request the redaction of their personal information before this law took affect. As I have stated, under current law, we are not at liberty to remove this information without written request of the parties involved.
Upon receipt of your written request, listing those documents of yours which meet the criteria for redaction, I will immediately take action to redact the information. Should you have additional questions, please feel free to contact me.
