We have received the NOD for our property and are ready to start looking at prospective rental properties. Since we have 2 dogs, we are kick-starting this process earlier rather than later. Based on the advice so often given on this forum, I am concerned about renting a property that is or will become delinquent and subject to short sale or foreclosure.
With a property owner's name, I know I can check the County Recorder websites for any notices of delinquency, etc., however, a property owner could have stopped paying the mortgage well in advance of an NOD. Can anyone share advice on the best way to ask a landlord/property owner to demonstrate that any loans on the property are current? I would hate to move in to a new place and find myself back in the midst of someone's foreclosure process in a few months.
