I answer your other questions. Please be careful since the name alone will not help at all. Yes, you find out they own it. But you do not know if they are in foreclosure or short sale. They may have 2 months left before the bank takes it away.

The only way to verify all this info is by working with a realtor.

Let me know if you need any assistance

if it sounds too good to be true, and the rent seems low - most likely it isn't true!

Never wire money to anyone who claims to be the owner!

That information is a matter of public record and you can go online to the Maricopa County Assessors website. You can search by address or parcel number and it will give you the current owner information. I hope this helps.

Contact a Realtor who can provide this information to you as a FREE service. An agent will be able to determine for you the owners of the property and if the home is on a foreclosure list.

There have been many scams out there and the name of the owner is public record and this is one of the ways the use to rent the home. Never rent over the phone, thru the mail etc..
