PROPERTY TAX-LIENS

UNSECURED PROPERTY TAXES

If full payment is not received or United States Postal Service postmarked on or before October 31, we will impose an additional $29 Notice of Lien collection cost and record a Certificate of Tax Lien with the Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk (Recorder) in the name of the assessee listed on the Unsecured Property Tax Bill.

The lien will attach to any real property the assessee owns in Los Angeles County until the taxes, penalties, and costs are paid in full.

HOW TO RELEASE YOUR TAX LIEN

We will issue a tax lien release once your Unsecured Property Tax Bill is paid in full.  If you have paid your bill in full and have not received your tax lien release, you may contact us at unsecured@ttc.lacounty.gov or (213) 893-7935, between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Pacific Time, Monday through Friday, excluding Los Angeles County holidays.
