Some county recorders offices have public and vital records available on their website that can be searched by owners name, address or parcel number. Some of them will list only series numbers of recorded documents and will mail copies of recorded documents to you for a small fee. Some counties are small and do not have the technology to provide the information but give an adress and phone number for more information. You can always go direct to the county and request copies f records, again sometimes available for a fee. Some counties allow you to access the records on microfische for no charge but will charge you if you want to make copies.

Of course, you can always call your Realtor. Title companies have instant access to most recorded documents online and will research and email them to a Realtor if requested.

I hope this helps.

The best public way is to get the county records. Here is a link to several Texas Counties To obtain all the requested information you may check with a Title company or your local realtor.

Your comments have me perplexed. Ownership can be found through several sources - but the "cliche" of the "dysfunctional" family seems out of place.

Visit your local Clerk of the Court to obtain access to public records. Here in Brevard County, FL, such records are accessible online.

I wonder what you are getting at?
Ownership information is normally relatively accurate. A Realtor could provide you with some of that information. The mortgage question is a little more puzzling.

It sounds from your question that there is some information that not even a Realtor will be able to tell you. Mortgage information (detailed information), is not normally accessible (for example, if you were trying to figure out what they owe on a property).

Sounds like you have some family issues going on. Anyway, to answer your question, title companies would probably be the best resource for you to get up-to-date information. While you can go online and search the county website, the information you'll be able to find there, will most likely not be up-to-date. There's usually a delay of several weeks or maybe even months before a recorded document will show on a website that is accessible by the public. Title companies need more current information as they issue title insurance. If you have ever purchased a home and you received a preliminary title report, you may have noticed that the report was only good up to a certain date. Title companies will usually run another search the day of recording to make sure no new liens were recorded while the property was in escrow.
