Hi,

I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today.

Some states have property records online. Where do you think you might own property?

Thank you.

Butler County, Missouri does not appear to have searchable property records online. What you can do is visit the county recorder's office and look for any properties that show your name on them as Grantee. You'd also be able to search for properties you once owned that had been transferred to someone else. You could also try calling or emailing them to see if they'll look for you, or if they'll require you to visit their office personally.

http://butler.countyportal.net/departments.php?id=recorder

Any property you have ever owned in the area should come up with a search. It may help to search with only a last name in case for some reason the property shows initials rather than a full name.

Please rate my service positively, as this is the only way that I get paid for the time spent answering your questions. Thank you.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
