Pasco County Utilities Provides Assessment Searches

A new fee for utilities assessment searches will go into effect July 1, 2022. A flat fee of $9 per assessment search submitted will cover assessment search services for water, sewer, reclaimed water and commercial solid waste services at a specific property.  Assessments are designed to protect property owners who are taking on new loans or refinancing.  

The $9 fee for each Utilities Assessment Search was established through the Utility Rate Study and helps to offset associated costs, including staff and equipment. 

“A title search should include checking for unpaid assessments,” said Utilities Customer Information & Services Director Sandra Anderson. “Overlooking an assessment could be detrimental, as any unpaid assessments will be levied against a parcel and are subject to penalties and lien activity. A thorough search, before closing, reduces additional costs after the closing.”

Please allow up to five business days for each assessment search. Billing statements, sent the first week of each month, will show requests that were received the month prior.

Payments may be made online or over the phone by calling (855) 786-5344, which is available 24/7. A full list of payment options and payment methods are available by visiting
