Hi there. Go to http://www.Bcpa.net. click on property search and then click accept in order to proceed with search.
Input your address then the next page that comes up will be your landlord's tax roll. If you want to see if current, look along the top of the form. You'll see 'Click here to display your tax bill' Click that and it will bring up the page that will show if the tax bill has been paid or not.
Your realtor could have done this for you, I do for my rental clients. I also have a form signed by the landlord and the renter stating they understand the Florida Landlord Tenant act as it applies to them.
I trust this answered your question. If anything else do not hesitate to ask.

If it was purchased in May 2011, then delinquent taxes are not an issue.

You will want to get in touch with the County.... I believe you are in Broward County. Typically, you can look online to see if there are past due taxes however I am not familiar with the website. You can look here as there are phone numbers to call the county or possibly search online for delinquent taxes for specific county.

Hope this helps...Good Luck!

Rather easily, just contact the tax collector in the town.city and ask, you may need to go there in person if they dont do it over the phone, some towns even have this info online.

You should have found this out before signing a lease, but you can login into the county property appraiser site or tax collectors site and find out if the are delinquent. They may not have paid their taxes in years, it only gets dicey for you when a tax certificate owner for that property decides to get their money back and requests the county sell the property at tax sale to satisfy the Tax certificate owners request to be compensated!

Thank you all, well, I did check them somewhat before i signed, I think the house was a foreclosure because it was bought in May 2011, so I think I'm safe. I'm checking all other suggestions.

thanks again!!

you may also want to verify the owner is current on any mortgages.
