Hi Melody_Matton, Your quest requires a bit of detective work.  Some states remove value and ownership information when a property is foreclosured.  You can check the tax site for city, county and as mention state.  This can be done with a google search.  Your best bet is to take the time and go the to the city, or township and ask for a copy of the most reecent owner and tax records.  You might find back taxes, water bills and/or other leans on the property for repairs.  Most drop off the property at the time of foreclosure.  Here is a very easy way to find out what happened.  Ask the neighbor they know everything!  Hope this helped.

Check your local tax records. They are readily available in most areas. Keep in mind that, depending on the area, they may not be up to date online and you might have to call.

Check at the local courthouse.
Or just call a realtor. I am on the CRS daily.

You could look up who pays the property taxes on the property.  That would most likely be the owner.  Indiana has a link on their state website for property tax information.  Try your state and local treasurer websites.
A real estate agent may be able to find out information about the home for you too. 

Good Luck,
Christine
