Online Property Database Access

Assessor Property Database Inquiry System

Background

The Assessor's Property Database (PDB) Inquiry System, containing the public record for all properties in Los Angeles County, is available for remote access through a fee-based service. It is not a relational database; users can only view records, one at a time, through an internet/VPN connection. Parcels are indexed by:

  1. Assessor's Identification Number (Mapbook-Page-Parcel)
  2. Assessee Name (Property Owner)
  3. Situs Address (Property Location)

The purpose of subscribing to the Assessor's online database is to be able to access the information from your own computer at your convenience. However, please note that obtaining this property information is free of charge either by visiting any of our Assessor regional offices, where you may use our PDB terminals, or you may call us at 213-974-2026 or 213-974-3363 to obtain property ownership information directly by phone.
Or you may also call our Public Counter at 213-974-2111 (or toll-free, 888-807-2111). When prompted, press 1 (English) or 2 (Spanish). Then press 3 for the Assessor. Or you may call Property Data Sales (see below).

Subscription Fees

  1. Monthly fee of $100 for maintaining the account, plus $1.00 per inquiry/screen.
  2. Sign-up fee of $168 for the online access. This entitles the user to a password token, renewable every three years.
