Property Transfers

Property transfer staff process real estate ownership changes and maintain taxpayer records for assessment and taxation purposes.  This is primarily done through recorded documents obtained from the Lane County Deeds & Records office.  Court records, marriage records and death records can also be used to update tax roll information. Copies of documents establishing ownership changes not recorded at Deeds & Records should be provided to our office as staff does not access information from other sources.  If a name changes due to marriage or a name should be removed because of death, our office can update the tax roll upon notification. However, to legally execute a name change on real estate title, the parties may want to consider recording the appropriate documents at the Lane County Deeds & Records office. Interested parties who believe errors or discrepancies exist in owners records or who have related questions or concerns should contact our office during business hours.
