Privacy Please—Security Recommendation

Did you know that anyone who knows your last name can look up the address (and appraised value) of any property you own in Harris County?  You can check this yourself at www.hcad.org.

We recommend, for privacy and security sake, that you fill out this PDF form, requesting that your name be removed from the public record.  This will have no impact on your property record, but will make it more difficult for prying eyes to learn where you live.  All Harris County Appraisal District forms are available at www.hcad.org/forms.

Please let us know if you have any questions or if we can help you in any way.
