    I am looking for references on sites that search for Property Owner information. We are currently using but have more trouble than not getting the correct information.  Is there another site that someone else could recommend.

    ​Kimberly - we usually use the county assessor or county clerk and recorder website.  However, it can be cumbersome trying to find some records depending on the search criteria available.  If a job has complex ownership such as multi use residential/commercial we hand those off to our attorney who has a contract with a local title company who can pull ownership reports.

    Try BICA.  They are reasonably local in Rancho Cucamonga and provide us with all of our prelim services, lien services, etc.

    Hi @Shirley Beard -- ​Getting the property owner can be a pain in the neck, as can getting other job contacts like the General Contractor, the Lender, and others.

    zlien provides a service called "JobSight," which combines the following to make this information accessible to you:

    1. A team of 30+ researchers
    2. Connection to >1,000,000 construction records (not just property records). 
    3. Access to property records like accessor offices, realquest/datatree, etc.
    You can learn a little bit about it here, and at this page, even request a free report and search for one of your jobs:
    Construction Job & Property Data by zlien's JobSight
    zlien remove preview
    Construction Job & Property Data by zlien's JobSight
    We make it easy to see & be seen on every job. Just Start with What You Know Add basic information about your project and a few stakeholders, such as your customer. Our research team will search for them using our record collections and other databases.

    Good luck,
