Where can I find information about easements on my property or someone else's?

Most private easements are not reflected on Assessor parcel maps because they are not recognized separately for property tax purposes. The Assessor’s Office may be able to assist you with finding relevant recorder document numbers related to public or private easements. Additional Information can be then found by contacting:

Recorders Office (530)-265-1221: For a recorded deed or a recorded subdivision map

Title Company: May help you obtain a title report.

The County Surveyor (530)-265-1222: May be able to assist you in understanding easement verbiage. An appointment may be necessary.
