How can I check on existing liens?

Does Zillow have a service that allows us to check on liens on a property?

Zillow doesn't, but you can call the county where the home is located to get the information, it's usually free.

Many counties have web access to court and land records where you can search by property address and/or owner name for liens.

Trot down to your town/city/county recorder's office.  Everything is on file there.

Hello - In checking with info on RealtyTrac and others that are giving info on foreclosures - I'm finding that many times they only show info regarding the lien that is in 1st position and that is foreclosing.  In many instances there are 2nd mortgages that will also need resolution.  MrLiam's advice about checking with a good Title Company was a great option for you.  They will give you some basic info on the property free, or can run a full title report for you for a fee.

If you have a Realtor, many are also set up with their preferred title company to be able access basic info regarding loans on the property as well so could be a good resource for you too.

Hope that helps.

I can't speak for Zillow, but I do not believe it offers such a service. Sites like Realtytrac.com deal in foreclosed properties, but you probably have to join. Yahoo real estate used to show properties in foreclosure, but I can't say how current or accurate its lists are.

If you want really good information and are willing to pay for it, a title company would be the place to go.
