The following disclaimer appears in California Revenue and Taxation Code Section 408.3. Monterey County, the Assessor, the Assessor's office, and its employees provide characteristics information pursuant and subject to the provisions of that section.
"The Legislature finds and declares that information concerning property is maintained solely for assessment purposes and is not continuously updated by the assessor. Therefore, neither the county nor the assessor shall incur any liability for errors, omissions, or approximations with respect to property characteristics information provided by the assessor to any party pursuant to this section. Further, this subdivision shall not be construed to imply liability on the part of the county or the assessor for errors, omission, or other defects in any other information or records provided by the assessor pursuant to the provisions of this part."
There is an $8.00 fee per parcel for characteristics information.
