OWNER ALERT is available to alert subscribers when a document is recorded into the County of San Diego Official Records.
If subscribed to OWNER ALERT, you will receive automated email alerts when a document is recorded containing the indexed name and/or Assessor’s Parcel Number (APN) registered. This would include liens recorded and placed on your personal, business, and trust names that you register.
You can register up to 10 different names and/or 10 APNs per registered email address.
There is no charge for this service, and you may unsubscribe at any time.
The automated email will provide you with a document number for the indexed name and/or APN you registered for, and a link to view the document index information. You may also search the document number through our Official Records Index.
