What information do I need?

Your property’s Id # from the County Appraisal District website www.Henderson-CAD.org

If you are in a subdivision we need the subdivision name, lot and block information.

When should I get an address for my new home or business?

The best time to request an address is when construction is beginning.

How do the emergency services know where my address is?

In order for emergency services to best respond to an emergency call, they need information to be as accurate as possible. We provide mapping information to these emergency providers to enable them to locate your home in a timely manner.


What addressing information do I need to get a new subdivision approved at Commissioner's Court?

The subdivision name as well as street names need to be verified with our office to avoid duplication. Our office will assign addresses and stamp the plat.
