Iíve never heard counties waiving tax penalties on delinquent real estate taxes They have all the leverage, you have none, so they have no need to negotiate against themselves.
Larger counties are much harder to work with than smaller counties. I find it best to talk to the department supervisor as they have usually been there longer and better understand how all the pieces fit together within county government. You learn by experience when working with county records.
As far as the condo site map, you are looking for something the developer most likely commissioned for marketing purposes. A title company wonít have all the info youíre seeking.
How old is the condo development? Was it a conversion needing approval to go condo? Not sure how long cities/counties keep building plans. Wouldnít seem like itís practicable to microfiche them, plus itís a pain to research microfiche and probably not worth the time for the info you seek.
The closest thing you probably will find are the plans submitted for permit issuance. They should have most if not all the info youíre seeking. Youíll have to dig around for it. If you canít find the info, it would help to speak to the inspector reviewing the plans for the permit, if itís a recent approval.
You might also want to check the assessorís appraisal, although the info is usually rudimentary and to be taken with a grain of salt including the value.
The accessorís map should be all on one page for a condo project. Large projects may incorporate more than one map and more than one book.
