This question I get asked fairly often. People want to know, how do I find out who owns a specific piece of property? You see, there are lots of different reasons people want to know this information. Some people think they might want to buy the property, others want to find the owner so they can have a word with them. Still others want to find out who owns the property so they can have some peace and quiet on their own wedding day. So, let’s get to it.
Check The Records
First of all, you need to make sure that you actually go back in time. It’s not unusual for somebody to claim ownership of something that actually belongs to someone else. For instance, if someone claims to own a piece of land that was previously owned by someone else, they can file for the land title. In some cases, this will lead you to the person who holds the title to the property. However, it’s still up to you to contact them and get the legal paperwork done so you can finally lay claim to your property. So keep your eyes open for situations like this and make sure you check the official land records.
Do A Little Research
Now that you’ve verified that the property is actually yours and that nobody is trying to swindle you, it’s time to do some research. There are a number of places online that can help you find the person who owns the property legally. You can search the public records or contact the Better Business Bureau. Doing a little research doesn’t hurt and it can often lead you to the people you’re looking for. Plus, it’s a great way to learn more about your own property. So do a little research and you’ll know exactly who owns the property, where they live, and whether or not they’re registered to vote.
Contact The Neighbors
Now that you know the property’s history, it’s time to contact the neighbors. The people who live nearby and on either side of you will probably know more about what’s going on than anyone else. They’ll also be able to give you some great advice on how to deal with the situation and how to make the most of it. So contact your neighbors and see what they have to say. You can also ask them for any tips or suggestions on how to handle the situation.
Search The Land Registry
Once you’ve talked to the neighbors and gotten their take on the situation, its time to search the land registry. The land registry office is where you’ll find all the information regarding ownership of real estate. You can search by address or legal description. Make sure you look through all the listings to find the exact property you’re looking for. Remember, there are multiple properties with the same address or legal description, so make sure you check all the results before making a decision. Remember also, you can’t always assume that the person who registers the property is the same as the owner. Lots of times, the owner will later register the property themselves. Just keep that in mind.
How Do I Dind Out The Title Of A Tastefully Dressed Woman?
This one actually isn’t very common but it’s happened a few times. Usually, the women in question are celebrities whose dresses are so distinctive that people confuse them for royalty. For example, let’s say you see a woman with a long dark cloak and a red dress on. At first, you might think that she’s Lady Gaga, or perhaps a pop star or a movie star. So you yell out “bravo” and “thank you” and move on with your life. A few minutes later, you’re walking down the street and you happen to glance at a shop window. Suddenly, there she is again, only this time she’s wearing a long white dress and a long white coat. You think to yourself, that’s strange, I’ve never seen that blonde before, and then you realize it’s Taylor Swift.
This kind of thing happens all the time when it comes to celebrities. They’re always wearing something distinctive enough that people can’t help but notice them. Even if it’s only a small village, people will know who she is and they’ll all be shouting out “bravo” and “thank you.” So, if you ever find yourself in a situation where you’re looking for an owner and there happens to be a tastefully dressed woman nearby, you know where to look. Just make sure you’re not too loud or obvious about it. Otherwise, the owner might not want to be found. That would be a shame, because you really want to be giving that woman all the credit anyway. After all, she is the one who made the dress that you happen to be wearing.
Look At The Local Tax Rolls
Another way to find the owner of a property is to look at the local tax rolls. This is another place you’ll find all the property information, including owner names. You can also find the assessed value, which will give you an idea of what the property is worth. As a general rule, the higher the assessed value, the higher the tax bill. You can also learn a lot from the local tax rolls themselves. For instance, you might see that a property is vacant and it hasn’t been taxed for several years. You might ask yourself, is this a good place to invest? Does the location feel right? Should you go there and explore more? These are all good questions and the answers might very well lie in the local tax rolls.
Contact The Post Office
This one is pretty much self-explanatory. You find the post office and you find out if the owner of the property has a current mail box. If they do, then it’s quite possible that they receive mail and you’ll be able to find their contact information quite easily. You can also check the phone book and look up the owner’s personal phone number. If you’re lucky, you might even be able to catch them when they’re not at their home. Sometimes, people don’t notify the post office when they move, so it’s possible that they’ve forgotten to update their mailing address. In any case, the post office is a great place to start your search for the owner of a property.
Check The Obituaries
It’s also possible that the owner of the property might have passed away and been missed by the official record keepers. In this case, you might need to check the obituaries to see if they’ve been missed by any relatives or friends. Sometimes, it helps to look for someone by the name of “owner,” or “inheritor” to see if they’re missing. In some cases, you might have to go through a number of obituaries to find the right person. This is a more work-intensive method but it can also lead you to the answer you’re looking for. It also depends on how well you know the deceased. If you knew them personally, then it might be easier to locate their obituary. Otherwise, you might have to go through a number of newspapers to find the right one. But, either way, it’s worth the effort.
Call Social Services
Another way to find the owner of a property is to contact social services. These are government agencies that are responsible for keeping track of people who are missing or have passed away. Sometimes, people leave behind a good portion of their estate but forget to mention who the rightful owner of the property is. In other cases, people hide their assets to avoid paying taxes and the agency gets stuck with the bill. In either case, it’s up to you to prove that you’re the owner of the property. If they believe you, then you’ll have to prove that you’re competent enough to manage the estate. Most likely, you’ll have to take care of any necessary paperwork and legal filings. The agency will also help you find an attorney who specializes in probate litigation. If you’re unable to hire a high-powered attorney, then you’ll have to do it yourself. But it’s worth the effort and the dollars, because it’s likely that you’ll finally be able to put a face to the name and find out who the real owner is.
