How do i find out who owns abandon houses????

I live in Jacksonville Florida and see so many abandon houses but no one seems to know the owners. Is there some where I can go to to find out more about them or a way I can look online to find out more about them???

  • I would think that would be a matter of public record thru your local county recorder's office. Most of the time if they're abandoned, then their bank owned.

  • Whatever County Hall of Records.
    Look in your Phone book.
    If you are wishing to lodge a complaint that would be something else.

  • They are probably foreclosures & owned by a bank. Why are you looking for info on them, to buy one yourself? Google foreclosures in that town.

  • Duval County property appraiser's website should be able to give you the info you need.  If you have the address and put it in the search in the left side of the screen it should pull it up for you.  I just looked up BIL's address and it showed him and his wife as being the owners.  I think on most sites you can use a map and obtain information on that, as well as tax records.  Good luck.
