To find an existing mortgage on a property, hire a title company and search through online resources, such as SearchQ.com, or check the official websites for the recorder or register offices in a particular county. County recorder offices may also have information on any mortgage liens attached to a property, notes OnlineSearches.com.

State county offices of the recorder or register of deed can have recorded documents such as mortgage papers, easements, deeds or other information that affects the title of a property. With the name of the property owner or the property's address, buyers and owners can find mortgage information by either visiting these county offices or their web pages.
OnlineSearches.com provides a free and searchable directory of public records that includes land records and deeds for different state counties. For counties that have these records online, it is possible to search by name or document type, states OnlineSearches.com. If no website is available for a particular county recorder office, then the information listed includes the contact number and address for the office.
Another way to find out about a property's mortgage information is to use the search tool at SearchQ.com. This website offers a free property analysis report, which can include current ownership, mortgages, liens, encumbrances and unreleased judgments associated with the current property owner.
If these free online search sites do not provide the information needed about an existing mortgage, then it may be necessary to hire a title company that can do a thorough search to reveal information on unpaid taxes, judgments or mortgages, notes AMTitle.com.

How to Find Out Who Has the Mortgage on a Specific Property

When someone takes out a mortgage to buy a property, the document is recorded and becomes public record for all to view. There are typically no fees for viewing public records through a county agency, though some counties charge a fee if you need copies of the recorded documents. All you need to begin your mortgage search is the property's exact address.

1, Write down the street address of the property you are interested in.
2, Go to the county tax collector's website to search for the assessor's parcel number (APN) used to identify the property. Enter the property address using the parcel map. Although you can view property tax bills online, the homeowner's name does not appear on the Internet.
3, Visit the county assessor's website or office to view documents, including the deed and mortgage lien. In San Francisco, you search using the Clerk-Recorder Imaging Information System. Enter the APN number to view the recorded documents associated with the property. If there is a mortgage, you can view the names of the borrowers and the lender.
4, Utilize a title company. Some title companies provide basic property profiles free of charge. If you are interested in purchasing the home, consider a complete title report to uncover any liens on the property. Title reports reveal detailed mortgage information, including the borrower's name, loan balance, lender, and origination date.
