There are a couple ways you can search our recorded documents.

In Person:
You are always welcome to visit our main office between the hours of 8:00 am to 5:00 pm to conduct your own search on one of our computer terminals.  If assistance is needed, our friendly staff would be more than happy to assist you.  

Search Online:
The Records Manager access tool allows the public to locate most documents that have been recorded in San Francisco. 

The records located on this site are public and questions regarding documents found on this site should be directed to our main office

Helpful Search Tip: 

  • You can search for recorded documents by using a few keywords in the Basic Search, or by more specific search criteria in our Advanced Search.
  • You can search for recorded documents by name, document number, document type, or by using the Assessor's Parcel Number (APN, which is also known as the Assessor's Block and Lot Number).
  • Any document(s) recorded prior to 1990 can only be searched at our main office.
  • There may be documents recorded after 1990 which are not searchable on the Records Manager access tool. These documents may still be searched at our main office.
