What are Property Records?

Search Property Records with Infotracer.com

Property records are public records that list the property owner’s name, property address, mailing address, zoning class, boundary lines, previous owners, legal descriptions, deed property details, the property value, number of bedrooms, baths, mortgage information, liens, taxes, sales history, amenities, and more. Property records are managed at the town/county level by government offices. Property information includes current property values from appraisers or a recent property assessment.

Property records are official documents and paperwork relating to real estate. They include both buildings and land. Some of these recorded documents are various types of property deeds that show the current legal owner of the property and other details. Before purchasing any land or buildings, buyers need to consult property records to determine if there are any liens on the property or tax issues. Some of the types of information in InfoTracer’s property reports include:

Property Ownership

Property Ownership

Property records show all past owners of a property, how much they paid for it, their phone number, address, and other details. Property records apply to both individuals and companies, trusts, and other entities that own properties.

Assessor

Assessor

A real estate assessor locates property, confirms its identity, and appraises its value in the current market. The assessor's office considers taxes in the area and any exemptions that may exist. Assessors are usually government employees and are often referred to as county assessors or city assessors. Assessors are also responsible for listing, classifying, and valuing all personal property within their jurisdiction.

Purchase History

Purchase History

A property's purchase history is essential because it illustrates the fluctuation in market value over time and may show any existing warranties and property taxes. Many buyers like to view the sales information before making an offer.

Property Tax Records

Property Tax Records

Property tax records refer to how much the town or city charges for taxes each year on the property. Taxes relate to the assessment value of the land or land and buildings. Taxpayers must pay their taxes or risk losing the property, or special assessments tacked onto their tax bill.

Property Details

Property Details

Property details may include the total square footage, acreage, building area, garage/parking situation, foundation type, flooring code, roofing type, number of stories, building style, electricity or other fuel types, water, and more. Whenever a property is sold, the property appraiser creates a report containing many of these details.

Property Value

Property Value

It is important to understand the current market value when buying or selling property. Some details about the property value include calculated total value, land value, improvement value, assessed value, market value, appraised total value, and tax amount.

Liens & Mortgages

Liens & Mortgages

Another significant factor is whether the property is subject to any liens. A property cannot be sold until the current lien is paid off or through the sale of the property. Some details on liens and mortgages include the tax amount, assessed value, recording date, mortgage amount, term and due date, deed information, and more.

Property Photos

Property Photos

Also included in property records are property photos from historical sale listings.

Frequently Asked Questions About Property Records

How to Find Property Records

Performing a property search can be tiresome because you must contact and visit each individual town office for local records. However, using InfoTracer's powerful search engine, you can see millions of public records within minutes.

What are Property Survey Records?

A property survey is a record that records the specific boundaries, orientation, and easements associated with a piece of property. Surveys are performed upon request by the owner of the land or sometimes in accordance with official town business. Periodically surveys are conducted before the sale of a piece of property.

How to Remove Your Name from Property Records

The best way to remove your name from property records is to take your name off the deed. However, it means you will have no legal rights to the land or property. If you want to remove a deceased's name from property records, you need a copy of their death certificate. If you want to remove the name of a former spouse, you can use a quitclaim deed.

How to Find Property Sales Online

Some county assessors and other government offices (.gov websites) may store their real property sales data online, but it's rare. You may find scattered information from other third-party real estate sites, but the best option is using an InfoTracer search which covers the entire country and will show whatever records are available.

How to Find the Owner of a Property Public Records

Yes. It is completely legal to look up a property owner's name and details. You can check with the county assessor, county clerk, local library, a real estate agent, title company, or another public records outlet like InfoTracer.

Are Property Records Public?

Yes. As part of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), property records are public, and you can access them usually for a small fee from government (town/county) offices.

Are Mortgage Records Public?

All real estate transactions are public records, and that includes mortgages. In addition, some media outlets list recent real estate sales and the accompanying mortgages.

How Do I Transfer Ownership of a Property?

You can transfer the ownership of a property using a warranty deed. A deed is the official legal document proving property ownership. You will need to sign the deed over to the new owner in front of a notary or a legal professional and then file the new deed with the town office or registry of deeds.

What is the Difference Between the Property Deed and the Title?

There are several differences between the property deed and the title. The deed to the property is very similar to a receipt that shows legal ownership of the property. However, the title simply means that the title holder can use the area of that land with the permission of the property owner.

How is Property Tax Calculated?

Property tax rates vary from town to town within each state. The property tax is calculated based on the assessed value of the land/home. For example, if the home is worth $250,000, in a state where the tax rate is $25 per thousand, the annual property taxes would be $6,250 ($250,000/$1,000 * $25). Property tax rates vary widely across the U.S. For example, the lowest rate is in Hawaii (.28%), and the highest rate is New Jersey with 2.49%.

How to Check Lien on a Property

You can easily check if there are liens on a property using an InfoTracer search and entering the property address. Liens are public records.

How to Find Assessed Value of a Property

The local district’s property assessor determines the assessed value of a property. The town uses this figure to calculate taxes. Real estate professionals may also use the assessed value when helping people buy or sell property.
