The letter of determination shall be posted on the premises and served upon the owner as provided in Section 6.44.060 of this chapter. "Owner" as used in this chapter shall mean any person in possession and also any person having or claiming to have any legal or equitable interest in said premises, as disclosed on the county assessor's or county recorder's records not more than 180 days prior to the date the letter of determination is served.
