John,

You can use the Orange County Tax Collector website to look up records.

There are websites available, such as nextace.com or SearchQ.com, that will allow you to look up most property information.

unfortunately, the tax.ocgov site does not provide a search with available property owner info...on the tax bill, they reference a new govt code that protects the name of the owner. am i looking/using the site correctly OR any other methods you can think of?

John:

Property ownership is public record. You can go to the County and look this up. Or, on the other hand, you can work with a really great REALTOR who has access to this through either their relationship with a Title Company or through their access to tax records. Dare to Dream.

The tax assessor is the best free way to obtain ownership information.

FindPropertyOwner.com is a pay website that will do the research for you.

Just to add a couple options.

Hi John,

Shel-lee advised the correct answer. I just want to add that due to the technology advancement, all of the Title Records can be viewed online via Realors.

Please kindly let us know if you have any further questions or concerns.

Regards,
Jonathan

Hello John, you can get all the information from teh website. It is available there and there is no restriction in accessing the information as it is free to be used by the general public. Alternatively, you can visit the Orange County Tax Collector office and collect information. However, it is quite a lengthy process.
