Chapters 119.071 and 493.6122 of the Florida Statutes state that individuals in certain professions, as well as their spouses and/or children, may request that the Clerk & Comptroller remove personal information from documents in the Official Record.
Please refer to the list of qualifying professions under Sections 119.071 and 493.6122 F.S. before submitting your request.
If you believe you have information that is protected by this statute and would like to have it shielded from public view, you must search the Official Records to identify specifically which records need to be modified and then complete a Request for Confidentiality form, giving us permission to modify the records.
Only records specifically listed on the Request for Confidentiality form will be modified. Any additional or subsequently-recorded documents will require a new Request for Confidentiality form. Please note that this request form only pertains to records held by the Clerk & Comptroller, Palm Beach County. To have information held by the Tax Collector or Property Appraiser made confidential, you must contact those agencies directly.
