The Platroom houses the property records for Scott County as described by Chapter 331.511 of the Iowa Code. This information is provided in the form of GIS, transfer books (history of all transfers of a property), and public-access computer terminals which provide a variety of property information. Platroom staff transfer ownership on tax parcels within the City of Davenport (County Assessor transfers County properties), and do research on ownership or legal descriptions when there is a problem. As new parcels and subdivisions are recorded, they are drawn in the GIS by the GIS Technician.
Many professionals visit the platroom everyday to do research, including lawyers, abstractors, realtors, appraisers, surveyors, and engineers. However, probably the largest percentage of customers in the plat room is the public. The platroom staff work closely with the County and City Assessors, the County Recorder, and the County Treasurer in processing deeds and transferring properties.
