Search Tips ...

As one is not looking for individual records but rather grouping of owners that investigators want to contact, its best to take a search strategy of wide to narrow.

Start with a city or zip code, then review the results, then add more specifics in other fields.

If your focus is businesses that have unclaimed funds, place typical business names in the owner field. Common related words for businesses in the records are:

From this you may want to adjust the Date reported to the State and, indirectly, when the owner was last contacted so you know that these are a recent unclaimed property. Lastly, you may want to adjust the cash reported as those less than $1000 often require minimal identification (e.g.,SSN).

Use of this website for searching for individual owners is not recommened as the owner field is often last name followed by first name and its not optomized like zip codes and the 482 municipalaties. If you are looking for an individual, use the California online database - - as that seems to be its primary purpose.
