Method 3: Contact the county clerk

In America, the county clerk or county recorder should also know who owns a property. The county clerk is responsible for filing vital records, or important documents related to a specific county’s population, including birth, death and marriage certificates.

Take California as an example, as long as you know the property’s location and county, you get the information about the owner for free from a county clerk. They may charge you for the printing service, but it won’t cost you much.

Some counties may have public records online directory, you can find general information online.

Method 4: Contact the county tax assessor

If your county doesn’t have a clerk’s office or you couldn’t find the county clerk, you can check with the town’s tax assessor. Through the property tax records, you can find out who owns the property.

If the owner is delinquent on their taxes, the county may sell it at a public auction. With the address of the property, you can search the record on the county’s website. The records will include the name and contact information of the property owner.

But not every county puts data online, you may have to go to the tax assessor’s office and search paper records.

Method 5: Search the address on social media

I won’t suggest you put a lot of effort and time into searching the address on social media like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc. But you can give it a try in your spare time because it’s totally free and simple. Nowadays, people leave footprints on all kinds of social media platforms, they may accidentally reveal their location when they post pics or videos. If you’re lucky, the results may surprise you.


You can find out who owns a property in several ways. With time and effort, sometimes a little luck, you may find the property owner for free. With a little cost, you can locate the owner quickly and easily. You can choose the one that suits you most.
