Annexation eligibility is determined by the location of your property in connection with the existing City limits. The City of Charleston eligibility requirements are governed by South Carolina State Law Title 5, "Municipal Corporations."
How to Annex
To annex into the City of Charleston, your property must be:
Approved by the City Council
Contiguous or "touching" the city limits
Ask our Annexation Coordinator: Send your address or tax map number by emailing the Annexation Coordinator to request an eligibility review. We will review your location and contiguity on a map to determine if your property is eligible.
Check your eligibility online: Go to your county’s geographic information systems (GIS) online service to review a map of your property. Their online services also allow you to review your zoning, buildings, fire stations, etc.
