Unclaimed Property

If the City of Leander is holding property belonging to you, the Finance Department wants to help you get it back.

Property Valued at $100 or Less

Every year, the City of Leander assesses unclaimed property in the form of returned or uncashed checks, deposits, refunds, overpayments, or any other transaction creating a credit balance. This property is presumed abandoned and subject to the Texas Property Code - Title 6, Chapter 76.

How to Claim Your Property

Our current unclaimed property listing allows you to view properties, valued up to $100, in alphabetical order of the last name of the payee or by business name. If you find your name or business name on the list, please print and complete our claim form and send it to the Finance Department along with proper identification supporting your claim to ownership.

Many of the names listed are from water utilities account deposit refunds. Please provide the old addresses, which we can use to match the claimant name with our records.

Property will continue to be held until it is claimed. Once a claim is submitted to the city, the Finance Department will review the information received and may:

  • Accept your claim of ownership and remit the property to you
  • Contact you for more information, or
  • Deny your claim by notifying you in writing

Property Valued over $100

In accordance with State Law, any amount over $100 is sent to the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts where it is held until claimed.
