Address Change

Important Notes About Address Changes

  • If an address change is completed by the Planning & Zoning Department the following agencies are informed on your behalf.
    *All other address changes are the responsibility of the property owner.
    1. Emergency Services – NEXTGEN911 Information
    2. Maryland Department of Assessment and Taxation
    3. United States Postal Service
  • Property owners are not required to immediately record a corrected deed using the new address. An address is a description of your property, but NOT a legal description. Should you sell the property in the future or have any new transactions where an address is requested, please use the new address.
  • It is recommended that you NOT change your address on everything immediately after receiving an address change letter. The address will be effective with the agencies our office notifies should you wish to use it, however, it is easier to change billing and other address items gradually. You have up to (1) year to change your address over before you postal carrier will return mail with the old address to the sender.
