I suggest you do a little research to see who you might feel comfortable with in this venture. Good luck!
Here are a few ways to check:
1.) Head down to your county courthouse that the property is in and ask for help on the last deed record date. It will have the owner information. You also might be able to pull your land records online. Try searching in google "Your County GIS". The GIS system is pretty standard terminology for land records
2.) You can send a letter first class to that address and if returned to you then it might have a forwarding address.
3.) ask the neighbors on each side whom the owners are
4.) if you have the owners name but no mailing address, search google for a skip trace company that can do one for about $10 and they'll tell you where the owner last hooked utilities up and you can get in contact with them.
Best of luck.
