FYI: Frequently Asked Questions
- I applied for a loan on a lot, but the lender tells me that I must supply them with the new Assessor's Parcel Number (APN)
I recently applied for a loan on a new subdivision lot that I purchased, but the lender tells me that I must supply them with the new Assessor's Parcel Number ("APN"), covering my specific lot before they can process my loan application. How do I get the new APN ?
Although it would certainly be convenient for your lender to have the new APN covering just your lot, it is our understanding that it is not required by law in order for your lender to complete the loan.
- When is real property reappraised?
Under State law (Proposition 13), real property is reappraised only when a change-in-ownership occurs, or upon completion of new construction.
- How can I be assigned, confirm or verify the official site address for a building or building site on a given assessment parcel number ("APN") ?
The "official" address for a building or building site can only be issued, confirmed or verified by the City's or County's Building, Community Development or Planning Department
