Because you are renting from a private owner, there is always the chance of a foreclosure on that property. Here is how you can find out if a property owner is in foreclosure, for FREE.
â€¢ Go to the county assessors web site:
Maricopa County: http://www.maricopa.gov/Assessor/ParcelApplication/Default.aspx
Pinal County: http://pinalcountyaz.gov/Departments/Assessor/Pages/ParcelInfoSearch.aspx
â€¢ Then search under property street address and house number.
â€¢ This brings up the county record for that parcel. You will need the owners name, first and last.
â€¢ Now go to the county recorders website in the county where the property is located.
Search for documents by first and last name. The document you are looking for is called â€œTREEâ€ or â€œSALEâ€ in Pinal county and â€œN/TR SALEâ€ in Maricopa county.
These are the documents that would be filed when a property goes into foreclosure. It is a 90 day process should it happen and you have rights if it does.
I certainly hope this helps you.
