You can check the information at the Broward County, county clerks office. Look up the name of the owner and see if there have been any liens filed against the owner for that property. Here is the link: http://188.8.131.52/oncorev2/search.aspx?q=detail
Just in case you haven't received the help you need, please call me at 954-336-5156. If you provide the address of the place you are looking to rent I will check to see if it is in foreclosure.
Additionally, when you use a real estate professional, we can advice you immediately if the foreclosure procedure has been initiated by the bank. However, without access to the owners credit report we would not be able to state definitively if the property is in jeopardy.
