It's public record, you can look it up on the Cook County Recorder of Deeds site. However, if you are unfamiliar with real estate, it may take some time to figure out how to do the research.

Based on my research, I doubt seriously if a 2nd mortgage was taken out because there does not appear to be enough equity in this property.

But, as Scott suggested, you can ask a title company or an attorney to do a title search for you.

Do a title search. Most registry of deeds have an online search, if not you can go there and do it yourself or hire a title company or real estate lawyer to do it.
