Most states have online Tax assessor records where you can look up the property by address. If that isn't available in your state you can go to the town hall or registrar of deeds and they should be able to give you the information you need. If there is a lien or judgement than it would be recorded publicly somewhere. Also, that is what a title search is for prior to closing so you should pay the money for a title search to make sure it's clear. ... more

If it's a single family, then you're likely looking at paying just the local recording fees and some escrow notary fees. Depending on the contract, you can expect to pay anywhere from as little as $40 to 2% of the purchase price. And, while not a cost of the transaction, you would also be expected to prepay for any upcoming property taxes. ... more

The blog raises a very good point that some may not think of. If you go into a lease w/option to purchase or rent to own agreement ASSUMING that at the end you will be able to buy the home. If you plan to get a mortgage, you need to be aware of the lenders requirements. Most lenders will require some type of rent verification to be done. If you are in a lease w/option to purchase. Not all lenders will accepct your agrement. I spoke to a loan officer recently on this very issue. This particular bank will not accept a lease with and option to purchase. Entering into this type of agreement may hurt you when you go to apply for a loan with certain banks.

Thanks for sharing Jim!
