I'm wondering if I should migrate my existing parcel polygons (stored as a feature class in a geodatabase) to a parcel fabric in ArcMap. What are the advantages of doing this? I work for a county so the parcels are used mainly to store attributes (who owns which parcels in a graphic representation etc.) and general information - NOT for being survey accurate.

Any info is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Honestly, you sound like just the kind of person Esri developed parcel fabrics for. I would recommend watching (or at least skimming) this hour-long webinar to see just what you can (and can't) do with parcel fabrics.
