Find the website of the local gov't. authority that administer the property tax, usually a county or city site, and click on the assessor's link. Input the street name and number of the property you want to know about, and a lot of relevant info will pop up including the name and address of the owner. Look up the owner's name in the phone book or drop him/her a note.

I know a private investigator that will run a backgroung check for very inexpensive rate. Call 602-703-8637 (William De La Torre) It is different of Intellius or USSearch because it is a personalized customer service and he can do extra work for you to find the person's information.

Dean...
You might save yourself a lot of time by contacting your commercial property, Title Company Representative. I note that you are from Chicago. I happen to use Chicago Title here in California for that service. This will provide you with the ownership and property information. However, you may have to use an internet service to find the phone numbers, if they are listed. Good luck Dean....

Thank you for your question about contacting the owner of a property. The best way to find the phone number or who owns a property is to contact a local real commercial real estate agent because they can represent your interest better than you can since they have more knowledge. If you knew as much as them you would have the number. Even if you are just wondering who owns it talking to a real estate agent can satisfy your interests completely.
