How do I find who owns certain property?

Department or City Assessor's Office. These offices will provide you with the
name(s) that appear on the tax roll, which may or may not be the owner(s). With these names, you can then search our office for any recorded information. If you have a name and approximate year to search, our office may provide you with recorded information.
