The SD County Assessor said they do reassessments in groups by area. So you just need to wait until your area is worked on.

They also have a large backlog of reassessments to do since lots of people filed property tax appeals this year.

But I wouldn't worry about having to pay a higher tax for this year. If you filed the appeals form on time, or purchased a foreclosure this past year,
I am pretty certain they are obligated to credit/refund to you for any excess tax you paid this year, once your reassessment is completed.

Default It doesn't take a year for new base value to be set

...when property transfers. Yes, the assessor's office is swamped, and no, the cities can't "drag their feet", as this is a COUNTY office. Generally, the county appraisers run anywhere from 2 - 6 months behind the recording date, depending on their workload, which right now with the tremendous number of foreclosures (which all require reassessment) is really high. The irony is that the county can't hire more appraisers to lower the backlog due to budget problems... The whole state budget crisis filters down to the counties and cities, because Sacramento sends us the money to administer county programs. Just read the U-T article the other day about the risk of funding being shut off for San Diego County's health services for the poor. So, even if you have a well run/efficient county or city operation, you are still affected by troubles in Sacramento.

Sorry it took so long to reply. I normally don't surf back into the same posts. Best way is to have a title company do a "title search" this will show you any liens or encumbrances on the property. They will most likely charge you a fee unless you have a buddy in the business who can pull a free one. If not PM me and I will see if i can get you a free title report for you from my sources.
