This types notices are public record.

Go to the office of the register of deeds in the county where the property is located.  Ask the staff member on duty to permit you to examine the title file associated with the property.

The title will give you the name of the owner and will identify any outstanding liens. Lien-holders might include a mortgage lender and a taxing authority.

Confirm the owner of the real estate and make a list of any individuals or entities that maintain a lien on it. Go to the clerk of the court, also in the county where the real estate is located.

Provide the staff member on duty with the name of the property owner and the name or names of any lien-holders. The court clerk's staff can confirm whether any foreclosure proceeding is in process.
