How do I find the owner, trustee or lender to contact on each property?

The owner, trustee and lender information is listed on the Property Details page of any property. Not every property will have all three fields of information because not every status of foreclosure involves all three parties.

Read an Overview of the foreclosure process, which includes links to state laws and other resources.

Once you subscribe to RealtyTrac, you can log in and run a search on the Property Search page. On the Search Results page, click on any property address to view the Property Details page for that property. The owner, trustee and lender information is located under Contact Information of the Property Details page. 

RealtyTrac usually lists the names of the parties involved on the property, but if you have trouble contacting the owner, trustee or lender, below are some suggestions for tracking them down.

1. If the seller has listed the property with a real estate agent, you can simply contact the listing agent. Subscribers can look for the "View this property on the MLS" link that will appear on the details page for properties listed with a real estate agent on the Multiple Listing Service. Just click on the link to view the listing details, including asking price and agent contact information. 

2. Subscribers can view the Foreclosure History section on any pre-foreclosure, auction or bank-owned Property Details page to view a list of data records RealtyTrac has for that property. Other data records may have more details about the property that were not on the original Property Details page. Subscribers can use this tool to check if previous foreclosure notices have been filed and if more than one lender is foreclosing on the property.

3. Contact the local property assessor (either through county or city government) and ask who is listed as the owner of the property. The assessor should also have the owner's mailing address. Go to to find the local property assessor in your area. 

4. Contact an Agent to find a local real estate agent in the RealtyTrac Agent Network who can help you buy a property.
