Double clicked address to find owner and didn't work.
My Advice would be to get in touch with an agent who could not only get the address for you but could print out the entire property history for what you are interested in.

What obligation do I have to my real estate broker if I found a place on my own and the seller is a friend who doesn't want to use a broker?

Passing the cost of water as a utility to the tenants... the law states that I can as long as I submeter etc. But can I bypass that by an addendum?
Uusally not, usually a seperate meter needs to be installed for accurate readings, otherwise as a landlord it is one of those items you need to pass along in the rent. Good luck
