Can I get information on how to change title?

If you want to add, change or remove a name from the property tax records, you must submit for recording appropriate deeding type documents with the County Clerk-Recorder in Auburn. Concurrently, with the document(s) submitted, an appropriate Change in Ownership Statement for the Assessor’s Office must be attached or additional fees may be charged. Change in Ownership Forms are available on the Assessor’s website.

Before you record any document, speak with your tax advisor or seek legal counsel for information about any potential reassessment (tax increase) or legal implications that may result from your recordation.
