How do I find out the property owner of a house?

Asked by djash01, 89117 Mon Sep 16, 2013

I was wondering if any realtor would be willing to do me a favor and tell me the owner of the house. We are moving into a rental property and would like to find the owner details before we move in. The property manager does not give any details.

Contact your local Assessor and Property Tax Records office and give them the address. You can also google the address, sometimes you can see the owner in one of the results.

Do an online search at your local county's Recorder's Office. You can do the search yourself. It's not rocket science.

You can find out the owner name, mortgage history, tax and even possible lien of his house for free. Go to and enter the property address to download a free property report.

Thanks but I tried and didn't get the owner's name and that's all I wanted. Thanks anyway!

While there are a number of sites that promise to offer you the ownership records for free, they mostly likely have a fee. Your best bet would be to work with a title company to get a comprehensive report regarding the ownership history of the property you wish to buy. You can find a list of title companies here:

This site does not give the ownership of the address. It only generates an analysis of the area with a lot of statistics. NOT HELPFUL TO FIND OUT OWNERSHIP.

You can find out if the house has lien on the title or not. On the free report, if the indicator turns green, there is lien.

Not true! The information in the free report is virtually useless. If you want useful details, you'll be charged $30.00

it is not free

not true its not free. when you get to the end they want your credit card to process it. I tried it.
Flag Fri Aug 5, 2016
The free report is an overview of title such as ownership, lien, tax and mortgage information. If you need to see the detail, you have to pay about $30 to get the comprehensive report and copy of the deeds.

That's no free report! It tells you all the stuff if found and you pay for it. Rip off.

Nope, this is a lie, there is no free report there. Just a report on the info you can get once you pay for it.

Ah, no. The query was to determine who owned the house, which the free report does not do, I checked. You can, however, pay 29.95 for the right to see the name of the owner. Suggest you get the story straight.

You can check then search for the property. If they have the data, you can buy a property report for around $30 that should have everything you need for your title search.

Hello Djash01,

The Owner has hired the Property Manager for a reason.......personal privacy, and management of the property without being personally can ask all your questions and concerns to the property manager, and have them clear those for you...
Yes, I can find out the owners details, and perhaps even where they currently live....
Be well and safe and all the best,

Yes but I personally live in a vacation beach community and sadly the beautiful home next to me is getting ruined I mean the kids are jumping off grooves, puke human feces in the side yard.They sleep on top of the roof they have broken windows and they have about 18 living in the house. The property managers WON'T tell an owner a problem as they are afraid of losing their 20% commission or it is in this case. I have reported them company, called the police all because I am truly sorry for my neighbors and the company will fix it up and somehow charge the owners ..I own properties and this is why I stopped with the management companies here..It's so frustrating as they are going to have a lawsuit with all the underage drinking etc...

First, are you sure you are dealing with a property manager -- and did you actually go to the property management office? Or are you dealing with someone you met online? Some unscrupulous people hijack listings and post them as their own. Then they claim they are out of the country, and ask that you wire your deposit and payment via Western Union. Be careful!

As for finding out who the owner is, You can always go to county records and search there. Just know that some properties may be in the name of a trust, which can be anything --- a fictitious name representing one or more individual owners, etc.

Good luck.

In California, the best way to find a property owner is to use PARCEL VIEWER . Determine which county the property you are interested in resides, then select the corresponding map. Then simply use the map to find the desired property and click on it. Property ownership info, last assessed values, and other data will appear on the right side of your screen.

One of the issues I have heard of is someone "rents" from the property owner, and then re rents it out at a higher price to an unsuspecting person. Someone I know found out the hard way, and they are being evicted for it.

To find out the title owner of a property you would need to pull the most current vesting deed to the property. This document reflects how title is held and any parties of interest listed as owner(s). Many county recorder's offices index property records under the individual or entity named on title for the property, land and real estate. The most efficient way to access these records are online through a title plant. I.E. US Title Records

To look up and find the owner of a property, you need to use a title search by address service. It is very arduous and difficult to find these records searching county records and indexes that are recorded on microfilm in county records. With today's advanced technology, records are indexed online in title plants and databases accessed and referenced by muiniciple street address, parcel number and lot and block. Some of the more prominent online title search companies are able to perform a search by address, APN, owner name or lot and block to obtain results within seconds. You might check with US TITLE RECORDS - or a similar website for these types of services.

You can ask you realtor or you can do it by yourself. First contact the county tax assessor. Someone is paying tax on property. In most cases, if you know the street address of the vacancy, you can search the county database that way. You may also consult other public records such as property deeds.

However, there are simpler way to find out your landlord. You can talk to the neighborhoods. Or you might send a postcard to the property's address. This is an way to introduce yourself and make your intentions known.
