Welcome to our parcel search application .. [which] provides the development conditions and building permit history for a specific address or parcel number in the City of Berkeley, along with an interactive map, which displays the parcel number and zoning for adjacent parcels.
The building permit history dates back to 1991, when the building permit system was installed. Information prior to 1991 is available only on microfiche at the Permit Service Center, 2120 Milvia St., Berkeley
This program compiles information on property sites within the City of Berkeley from various sources. There may be building permit history or other information for related addresses. Neither the inclusion of a site nor the exclusion of a site in this program is intended to make any representation of the actual environmental conditions on a particular site, but merely indicates the existence of certain records available to the City for dissemination.
While the City of Berkeley has undertaken to input the information correctly, the City makes no guaranty of its accuracy nor has it independently verified the information. Please consult City staff for procedures on obtaining the most current information available. This program does not create any rights or liabilities, either procedurally or substantively, regarding the information presented or omitted and should not be relied upon for that purpose.
