Public Works' mapping division processes and reviews all subdivision projects that occur in San Francisco, including all condominium conversions. We also provide surveying services for all city agencies.
Effective January 1, 2018 California State Senate Bill 2 (SB 2 - Atkins) will come into effect and there will be a mandated state fee added to the base recording fees that are currently charged to record a document. Each document set, including maps, submitted to the Public Works mapping department for recordation will require a fee of $75 per resultant APN in each real property document to be recorded, not to exceed a maximum SB2 fee of $225 per document. Again, this is in addition to the base recording fee.
This applies to all current and future project applications. Please visit the Recording Fee website of the Office of the Assessor-Recorder for more information.
To increase efficiency and reduce paper consumption, the Office of the City and County Surveyor requires that all project applications be submitted electronically.*
