Q: Searching For Property Owner Information From Only A Street Address?
by Question
The ease of gathering information online has made a novice investigator out of web users. When starting out, chances are you will see a good amount of information, some of it unexpected. Simply entering a name or address in your search engine, will do just that, based on the right keywords. One of the most common searches is for property ownership information and the current value. You will find looking up property values to be much easier as many companies in the real estate industry will provide it freely. Name of the property owner is a different matter. It is considered public record, so what is the problem?
With the advancements in technology, access to recorded documents should be easy, specially when the valuations are made accessible online. The reason is privacy protections, a major contributor is protection from identity theft and other unintended fraudulent consequences. So what does an individual do when running into the problem of privacy policies being in the way of getting public records. After all, you have a right to these records by law.
The difference between policy and laws for free access to public records
The laws for obtaining property records are clear. There isn’t much debate on whether deeds should be available for the public to obtain. However, departments in charge of deeds can set policies as long as it does not violate laws. The freedom of information statutes from state to state can also be different directly affecting the availability. Some state laws are geared toward more transparency than others. This also means that there is no blanket answer to cover all agencies, each have their own policies which need to be followed. Even counties bordering each other can have vastly different procedures.
How do you find out about getting the information under an address?
Today, nearly all county offices have websites in one form or another. While is it making things easier for the department, it is also doing the same for the individual searching. It is simply just more challenging in some states than others, such as California, New York and a few others. The law guaranteeing the access to public records does not provide for its ease of retrieval or costs as long as it is not unjustly prohibitive. You can successfully begin with government websites which deal with deeds and recorded documents. Private entities request much of their data from public entities also for their own use or resell, meaning that the government sources are generally the source of all information you will be seeking.
