I did not see the property lines on google either.

Yep, check the property appraiser office for the county, Usually the only
original source for such data.
For my county http://paraster.ocpafl.org/Webmap2/default.aspx  Be sure to
check out the 6" per pixel aerial view as well as birds eye, and links to
google street view and MS live maps

Some counties are a lot more free with their data, even if all will let you
view it.  Do not mistake being able to use (or even buy/download) the data
with letting you copy and reuse it.
Specifically ask.
