I feel stupid asking this, but I cannot find or figure out what to search to check if there is a lien against a property.
I live in Pensacola, FL, which is Escambia County. The country clerk's website is https://www.escambiaclerk.com/338/Official-Records . Through this site, I reached the official records site https://dory.escambiaclerk.com/LandmarkWeb126.96.36.199 .
I'm pretty sure it is somewhere in the official records site, but cannot figure out how to find it based on property address or the owner's name (based on county property records). Does anyone ever search for this stuff online when looking for at a foreclosure or do I need to go to the court?
I'm concerned about buying a foreclosure and there being liens against it. I'm also, interested in determining what the final judgement amount is. Thoughts?
I'll be following this post as I am curious to the answer for Escambia County. When I lived in Ohio and explored foreclosure auctions, my title company offered free title searches since it didn't take them that long and we did enough business with them. I wonder if your title company would be willing to do that or at least just throw them $75 for a title searches on properties you are very serious about bidding on and prior to bidding.
