    Conveyances:

    Our office works closely with constituents of Pima County, utility companies, engineering and development companies, along with other departments within the county on certain requests for conveyance of “Right of Way”. Frequently, these requests for conveyance are related to Easements or Public Roadways. Listed below are the three (3) application forms used in our office to properly convey “Right of Way”: 


    Each form has a separate purpose and fee schedule. For further details, contact our office.

    About Licenses:

    In the Real Property Services Division, Licenses are used to maintain encroachments along Pima County owned roads and other subsequent parcels. For Example, if an entrance wall of a Homeowner's Association were to encroach a Pima County owned road, the owner or developer would need to submit a License Application along with its subsequent fee.

    If a requested License for Encroachment includes Landscaping of any kind, please refer to Pima County Department of Transportation's Landscape Manual

    If a License already exists within our department and it has expired, the responsible party for the encroachment would need to submit a License Renewal Application along with its subsequent fee. 

    The above mentioned forms are provided below:
