For more advanced property information, check out our BuildingBlocks application.

Frequently Asked Questions

We try to include every known address in this application, but there may be some addresses that we don't know about, or addresses that don't work with our search.  If you can't find your address using the address search, try searching by owner name.  You can also select a property from the map:  simply pan and zoom the map to your property and click on it.

We can only show information about properties located within the City of Rochester. For neighboring towns such as Brighton, Chili, Gates, Greece, Irondequoit or Penfield, check the Monroe County Real Property Portal.

If you’re sure that your property is located in the city and you don’t see it on the map, call the City Assessor for more information: (585) 428-7221

Please visit the Assessment Bureaua's Page.

Please call 311 (or 585-428-5990 if you're outside the city).

Yes. Go to our online payment system. We don’t have bill payment linked directly to the Property Information application yet, so you’ll have to look it up again in the payment system.

It takes a day for this information to get into our system. Please check again tomorrow.

Assessment and billing information are updated nightly, so this application shows yesterday’s information. Edits to property boundaries can take longer to get into the system.

The Zoning District, Overlay District, and Preservation District layers are updated as re-zonings occur.
