The Assessor’s Office does not track or research easements. Easements are researched by viewing and scaling out the legal description for all recorded documents involved in the chain of title for the property in question and possibly the surrounding area. It is recommended that you hire an attorney or title company to assist you in this process. If you wish to view public documents, they are recorded at the Clerk & Recorder’s Office. They can be reached on their website or via telephone 303-271-8122.

The Assessor’s Office does not provide title or chain of title reports. However, Jefferson County does provide a wide variety of information about all properties within the county through our GIS software called JMap. Most properties can be researched by using the Assessor Information screen within JMap. Simply go to JMap and search the address of the property you are interested in and once on the main screen click on the link to Assessor Information. Select the desired property one more time and on the next screen will appear a wide variety of information about the selected property, including a sales history which lists deeds and reception numbers for recent sales of the property. Please be aware that this is based on the information the Assessor’s Office has at the time. The information may not be up to date.
