On February 22, 2019, Walton County mailed a second notice to beachfront property owners who Walton County had not effectively noticed.  This was a followup to Walton County’s January mailing to over 4,600 registered letters to owners of 1,194  parcels putting them on notice that Walton County seeks declaratory judgment affirming the existence of recreational customary use.

As a beachfront property owner, if you do not challenge this lawsuit the sandy beach portion of your property would be subject to public use and you cannot decide who may or may not use this portion of your property. This effectively opens a portion of YOUR private beachfront property to PUBLIC USE.

You must respond before mid-April to preserve your valuable property rights forever. Join hundreds of other beachfront owners have already retained  legal counsel to protect their property rights.  Only you can defend your rights! 

We strongly recommend you contact an attorney or you can access information on how to see the docket of interventions in the case to see how some property owners have intervened.  For your convenience some attorneys’ contact information is listed below.
