Assessor-Recorder - Owner of Property in San Francisco - 106765

Question:

Who is the owner of a property in San Francisco?

Answer:

The San Francisco Assessor-Recorder's office maintains information on property ownership for properties located in San Francisco.

This information is not available online. You may get information by calling 554-5596 or by going to their office, Monday through Friday, between the hours of 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. They are located at City Hall, 1 Dr. Carlton B. Goodlett Place, Room 190, San Francisco, CA 94102.

You could also choose to conduct a search by address to obtain the property's parcel information (block/lot) and then search the recorded documents database to see what documents pertaining to the property have been recorded from 1990 to present.

This office is not responsible if the question is to determine who owns a particular side of a fence to decide who should carry the costs of replacing it. That is a very complex problem and you will need to contact an attorney or legal advisor to counsel you on neighborhood laws. You also have the option of hiring a surveyor to establish your property line and thus determine who must carry the cost of replacing the fence.
