How do I get a piece of property declared surplus?
St. Johns County has a procedure for evaluating and determining whether a property is surplus to the needs of the County. If the property you are interested in is not currently declared surplus property, you may contact us for assistance.
Is this the Division that helps with housing?
No, you are referring to the Housing and Community Services Department which provides a variety of support programs for homeowners and home buyers. They can be reached at (904) 827-6890.
Is this where I can reach the Board of Realtors?
No, this Division serves the citizens of St. Johns County by acquiring interests in property for the use of County government. The Board of Realtors can be reached at (904) 829-8738.
Is the County supposed to take care of my road?
The answer to this question depends on local conditions. You need to check with your homeowners association, if any. Also, ask local residents about the status of your road. Dedication of roads usually takes place when your subdivision was platted or legally recorded. If you do not live in a subdivision, adjacent homeowners often share maintenance responsibility for privately owned roads. If you have trouble finding this information, contact us and we will be glad to assist you in determining the ownership of your road.
