F.S. 177.132
177.132 Preservation of unrecorded maps.
(1) The clerk of the circuit court of a county may receive and copy, as unrecorded maps, otherwise unrecorded plats and maps, including sales maps, which describe or illustrate the boundaries and subdivision of parcels of land, but which do not necessarily indicate proper metes and bounds or otherwise comply with the recording requirements of this part. The receipt and copying of such documents shall not affect or impair the title to the property in any manner, nor shall it be construed as actual or constructive notice, but shall be for informational purposes only and shall not be referred to for the purpose of conveying property or for circumventing the lawful regulation and control of subdividing lands by local governing bodies. The clerk may maintain a separate book or other filing process provided by the county for this purpose. The clerk shall make reproductions of these copies available to the public at a reasonable fee.
(2) Sections 177.021-177.121 of this part shall not apply to this section.
