Here is the link for the Dakota County Foreclosure Search:

I am not sure if they are up to date on their filings, so keep in mind, there may be some lagtime between when the paperwork is filed and when the information in on the web. If you want to double check, call the Sheriff's Dept and ask them. Most counties will check it for you in a minute or two over the phone, especially if you tell them you are a tenant. The main number for Dakota County is 651-437-3191 just tell the operator that you are a tenant and you want to talk to the Sheriff's Dept about a Foreclosure Sale.

Also, here are some great resources for renters who are dealing with potential foreclosure:

Home Line is an excellent local resource:

And the Attorney General has some good general information you might need:

And here is more info from Dakota County:

Minnesota Tenants Union (612) 871-7485 located at: 15 E 22ND St, Minneapolis, MN 55404

I hope that helps. Good luck and don't be shy about calling the Tenant's Union or the Attorney General's Office if you need more help.

If your landlord is getting behind on payments there would be no way to find out except for asking them until they reach a level of default where the lender starts the foreclosure process. The first indication would typically be a notice of default that is filed with the county, you could go there and have someone help you look it up.

Go to the "Find a Pro" tab and type in your city and state.

You could contact an agent and have them look up the County Records on their multiple listing site -or- you could go to your local County Recorder's Office & look up your address.

If any type of "Notice of Default, Auction, Foreclosure, etc." notice has been filed, it will show you when & by who (what lender).

Best of luck!
