Title Companies

Submit a demand request and a copy of the abstract or lien by fax to (925) 335-3626.

Demand requests must be submitted on title company letterhead with telephone and fax numbers, and must include the following information:

  • Your client's full name
  • Social Security Number
  • Date of Birth
  • Property Address
  • Attach a copy of the Abstract of Support Judgment or Lien

Please submit the demand with information (Social Security Number, date of birth, etc.) received directly from your client. DCSS will research the information you provide to verify the facts of any abstract or lien, and report back to you. Incomplete information will delay our response.
