Real Estate Law & Public Record Search Tools

With the right tools, it is easy to find out who owns a property? Just use your local assessor’s website to look up a property by map or address. For investors trying to find an owner, this information is invaluable. Another way to scout properties is to search bankruptcies, liens, and death records. The following tools are all useful to help the investor to research possible real estate investments. In addition, we’ve provided links to important real estate laws and law resources.
