How to Find Out My Lot & Block Number

A "lot number" and "block number" are two pieces of information that help separate one piece of property from another in official records. Both the lot number and block number are a part of the legal description of a home. Luckily, this description is stored with the local government in the area where the property is located. This makes finding it as simple as using the Internet.

Step 1

Navigate to the website for the assessor of property for the county in which you live. For example, if you live in Shelby County, Tennessee you need to go to the Shelby County assessor of property website (see References).

Step 2

Select the "Search Personal Property Records" option, or whatever similarly named option is available on the website you are viewing. Depending on the website the "Search" option may be named slightly differently.

Step 3

Type the "Street Number" and "Street Name" into the boxes on screen. If you own the property outright, you can also type your name. Click "Search." Select the appropriately labeled address from the results on screen to view the legal description of the property in question. The lot number and block number will be listed in the description.
