What is Property Owner Data?

Property owner data encompasses data on the history of ownership of a particular property. Property ownership data shows who owns the property, whether that be an individual, couple, a number of people, or a company. This data is typically used to verify property ownership.

What sort of property ownership data can ATTOM provide?

ATTOM’s property ownership data offers owner names, tax mailing addresses, property exemptions, occupancy status, and property vesting information.

Here’s what each of these entails:

  • Owner names: Determine who owns a property and if it’s owned by private individuals, married/single owner(s), a trust, an LLC, or another type of company.
  • Tax mailing address: Find out the mailing address for the primary contact on a property’s tax assessments. This data is pulled from publicly recorded documents and deeds.
  • Exemptions: Find out what exemptions a property qualifies for, including homestead exemptions and exemptions for seniors, veterans, and disabled persons.
  • Occupancy: Understand whether a property is occupied by the owner or is used as a vacation or rental property.
  • Vesting: Determine who holds a property’s title. Does it lie with a single individual, a married individual, a trustee, or joint ownership with rights of survivorship?

These data points can be used singularly or as a whole to help with outreach, marketing, lead generation, and more.

What can I use property ownership data for?
