Composition of Miami-Dade County Folio Number
The folio number is a means by which properties are identified in Miami-Dade County. It is also referred to as the parcel identifier and represents a unique number that computer systems use to associate to a property. The folios number is formatted as a 13 digit number (99-9999-999-9999). The composition of the folio number includes Municipality, Township, Range, Section, Sub-division, and Parcel Identifier as described below.
You can search for a real estate by folio, address, or owner name using our Property Search application.
The 1st two digits of the folio number are the municipal code as listed on this adjoining chart. Code 30 indicates properties in Miami-Dade County not within the municipality, otherwise referred to as “unincorporated”.
Township, Range, and Section:
The next 4 digits indicate the, Township, Range, and Section based on the Public Land Survey System (PLSS).
The first digit is the township number. Townships run from North to South in ascending order. Miami-Dade starts with township 51 in the north and changes every 6 miles going South until township 59. The first number of the township (5) is omitted and only the second number is used in the folio number. A township is 36 square miles.
The second of these 4 is the range number. Range numbers start with range 35 in the extreme West and change every 6 miles going East until range 42. The first digit of the range (3 or 4) is omitted and only the last number is used in the folio number.
The last two digits are the section number. This could be any number between 1 and 36, there being 36 sections in each township and range grid. A section is normally one square mile.
The next 3 digits are the subdivision number, acreage, or plat. Un-subdivided properties will show 000 in this portion of the folio number. Every subdivision within a section is given a consecutive number. Therefore, 006 within a section is the 6th subdivision recorded within this section. Some acreage parcels were originally part of old subdivisions and carries 001 or 002 designation under subdivision, even though these are large tracts (acreage).
The last 4 digits are the actual parcel number.
