This Message Is For Barrister If He's Available. I'm a real

This Message Is For Barrister If He's Available.I'm a real estate investor and I'm thinking about an investment in a property that looks good in most every way but one. I can't find any available information about the first mortgage, I've searched every website and tried every option I know but there's no available information concerning the holder of the first mortgage or any payment history, not even on the mortgagee's credit report. The seller says that he's in the same boat and he has no first mortgage information to give me. What should I do, this seems like a good investment in every other way.- Doug Barber
