    Default How to find out who owns a boarded up house?

    I am starting out as a property finder for local property investors. I am based in the UK.

    When I travel round my city, I see houses with the windows or doors boarded up (with wooden boards or metal grates). Many have no ‘for sale’ signs on them. How do I find out who owns these property?

    Also, does the fact that they’re boarded up and have no for sale signs mean they’re repossessed properties? Or could they still be owned by someone?

    The best thing is to check on the government records if you will be unable to get initial info when initially investigating.

    Maybe you could peek in the window and see if they are actually still living in there
