Public Records Research Part 2

I like to start my search at the Tax assessors office because I can find a lot of information about the subject I am investigating there.

For instance I can find out how much they purportedly paid for the property, when it was deeded over to them and through what kind of Deed, a Warranty Deed or a Quit Claim Deed, a Quit Claim Deed is usually done by people who want to get the job done in a hurry and involve the least number of people as possible.

I can find out what kind of improvements they made to the property for instance added a swimming pool or an extra wing to the house.

There is lots of useful information that can be gleamed from the tax record, if the subject claims homestead or uses the property as a secondary investment property.

One you established this then is time to go to the : Clerk of the Circuit Court Records and further your research. Once here you want to look for a tab labeled Public Access to Public Records

Once you made it this far you should be able to search by :

¤ Search By Name

¤ Search By Name Advanced.

¤ Search By Case No.

¤ Search By Case No. Advanced

¤ Judge Calendar

¤ Help

This is what PI's do , you can find out if someone is in the habit of paying their traffic fines, foreclosures, injunctions ,family violence history, and you can get to know someone quite intimately sadly this is to often done after the damage has been done. Flim flam artists often leave a long trail of destruction in many counties and you have become one more in a long list of statistics......

Judges are better than average people in covering their tracks and can often use surnames, friends,lovers,acquaintances , Once you get familiar and start researching your judges you might be surprised at what you find.

I once found a wealthy landlord who had gotten all his properties from widows who had Alzheimer's and often took mortgages in their names to cover up his tracks of course you can bet they never saw any of the proceeds from the loans but that a story for another article.....
