Because you are renting from a private owner, there is always the chance of a foreclosure on that property. Here is how you can find out if a property owner is in foreclosure, for FREE.
â€¢ Go to the county assessors web site:
Maricopa County: http://www.maricopa.gov/Assessor/ParcelApplication/Default.aspx
Pinal County: http://pinalcountyaz.gov/Departments/Assessor/Pages/ParcelInfoSearch.aspx
â€¢ Then search under property street address and house number.
â€¢ This brings up the county record for that parcel. You will need the owners name, first and last.
â€¢ Now go to the county recorders website in the county where the property is located.
