in California, you can also check out the County Assessor web site to see if the property tax is paid and the mailing address of the home owner.
I would advise the utmost caution. We are hearing of people "renting" out vacant homes that they do not own. They take your money and disappear. Meanwhile, when you move in you are trespassing on someone else's property.
I can look up both the ownership of the property and whether or not it is in foreclosure. Contact me through my profile or call me with the property address. Better safe than sorry.
