It's public information. A title company can help if they see the benefit in it.

Go to your local tax authority's website and do a property search. Many even have an interactive map, so you can find the owner of a property even if you don't know the exact address. However, in some states, like California, you will have to pay for each one.

There are services like realquest.com to get public record info. They have have a nice feature as you can do "point and click" map searches. Once you have the owners name, often you can get their tel # using 411.com.

You can always try asking a neighboring business owner if there is one. They can be a great source of information.

It depends. Some places it is public, others IT IS NOT PUBLIC. In fact even within a particular state the rules change from one county to the next. Most of the time you can get the name and mailing address, then research through phone directory for more information. It's time consuming ...

First go to the tax records online or buying a CD. Then if the owner is a LLC or company then go to the State Business look up and find out by review the records who signed the artical and who the regestered agent is normally it will be the owner and his phone number may aso be there.
