Amen Joel! Unless this property has personal signficance or borders up againt a property you own currently, you are better off to contact a good agent in your area and find a property There are no shortage of good deals out there and good agents to help you find them...

Move on; life's too short to solve someone else's problems and that's most likely what you'll be doing. Plenty of good deals in the market and a good agent will help you find what you're looking for. Unless you have a sentimental interest in the home, stop spinning your wheels. With all of those lienholders potentially in place, the chances of you getting such a great deal are very slim.

Contact me if you need help, happy to do so.

The caution is that the lender on the property will not even admit that have a loan on without a letter of permission from the owner. The key is to track down the owner of the property and have them do a short sale.

Here are some suggestions, all of which I have done but none guaranteed to get you the results or info you are looking for: (1)see if you can find out through the county records who the lender is and write to them. Tell them you are interested in purchasing the property and see what it would take. Would recommend if you do get a response, have a realtor you trust or attorney get involved to make sure you are getting a 'clean deal'. (2) Check your county sheriff sale site to see if it is on the schedule for auction for back taxes or, if it already sold at a tax sale (3) Contact the county auditors office and see what they can tell you including is it in the 'pipeline' to go to sheriff sale auction (4) Ask a realtor you trust to recommend a title co., you can pay them to research

All the information you are looking for is lurking in the county and court records- it can be hard to
to get to the bottom of it! I wish there were an easier way- Good luck to you!

Is the property up for auction on back taxes? You can not buy it unless it is being offered at auction for deliquent taxes.
