The Title Department is an integral part of the Assessor’s Office which assists in performing the three basic Assessor functions.
1) Locate land parcels and verify their legal location and property description
2) Identify and confirm ownership of said parcels
3) Determine the value of the property.
The main function of the Title Department is to transfer ownership, taken from recorded deeds. This involves verifying ownership on both subdivision lots as well as on metes and bounds parcels. In addition, the Title Department will set up ownership for new subdivisions that have been recorded once the Cartography Department has verified plat geometry, assigned new parcel numbers to the lots and tracts, etc.
The Title Department is also the first step in the process when a land owner requests that multiple parcels be combined into one new tax parcel ID. There are a series of items that must be verified prior to any parcel combinations. The Title Department works together with the Cartography Department to obtain new parcel numbers and to update the title records.
