Once you have your permanent RUT, you need to ask SII to transfer your property from your temp RUT to your permanent one. They have a form you need to sign in person to do that, and afterwards you also need to update your info on their website.

Thanks for this reminder. Fortunately, I already took such action at the SII office in Valparaíso and now both my property tax reports (Certificado de Avalúo Fiscal) and the municipality property ownership records (Conservador de Bienes Raíces de Viña del Mar) reflect my permanent RUT.
