How to Register Abandoned Properties
Verify the property is located within the City of Colton. Determining jurisdiction is the responsibility of the trustee or beneficiary. Refunds will not be made for incorrect filings. If you are uncertain the property is within City of Colton jurisdiction, please contact our office to verify the address. Complete the property registration form (PDF) along with your designation of a local property maintenance contact person and return it to our office along with the payment of fees.
If you have multiple properties to register in our city, please contact us via email and we will send an electronic form to register multiple properties. Registration is not complete until payment is received.
