Permanent parcels are part of a system that has been designed to rapidly and logically identify any single parcel of real estate within a County, by a simple numerical description. This simple description of land is beneficial to the public and to the various County government offices involved by simplifying the location of the parcels.
This numbering system applies a permanent number to every parcel of land. The permanent number will remain with the parcel of land no matter how many times the ownership may be transferred, as long as the physical boundaries of the parcel remain the same.
Cuyahoga County assigns the permanent parcel numbers, and and is the keeper of those records. The maps below are copies of the counties maps. You may search these maps by breaking your Parcel Number down.
For example for parcel 212-01-003, the first three numbers are the directory, second two numbers are the page, and the final three numbers are the actual piece of real estate.
