I think searching the newspaper notices may only yield the name of the Trustee and the Attorney handling the foreclosure. Certainly calling one or both may help, but I think the land records at the county courthouse will offer you all the information you seek. Many counties in Virginia now offer land records online, if not, you can visit your courthouse. All land records are public, and you can search info on any address you wish. I hope this helps, Jim.

The easiest way is to search for the foreclosure notice.  Foreclosure notices are published in the local newspaper under "Legal Notices" - if you have several local papers, you may need to check each one.  The foreclosure notice will include the name of the bank.

If it's been some time since the foreclosure took place (at least a month or two), the information may also show up in the tax records.  But that's not foolproof since it may take the bank some time to record the change in ownership.
