Real Property Services (RPS) works with County departments and prospective donors to provide information and process donations of real property. Potential donations are considered on a case-by-case basis and will be evaluated to determine ownership and title information, tax status, use and other property information. A General Plan Conformity Report and an Environmental Determination will be prepared, and all donations are subject to the approval of the Board of Supervisors.
*Donors of real property may incur significant legal and tax consequences. RPS does not make any representations to donors with respect to tax or other legal issues, and does not determine a value of the donation for the property owner. Potential donors should discuss all aspects of a donation transaction with his or her tax, legal, and/or financial advisors.
Anyone can use this service.
The County does not charge for this service; however the property owner may incur costs to obtain necessary reports and/or documents such as a preliminary title report.
This service is available throughout the year during regular business hours except during scheduled holidays.
