Indianapolis, IN asked in Foreclosure and Real Estate Law for North Carolina

Q: Hello, I am on the Board of an HOA in North Carolina. We have several owners who we cannot locate. What do you recommend

We have checked County tax rolls for addresses and do not know where else to look for a correct/current address, phone number or e-mail. What should we do and what options do we have if we are unable to contact them?

A: Have you tried mailing a letter to them at the property address and if so, what does it say when the letter is returned? Traditional first class mail is the basic method for communications. The county tax office listing has the currently listed mailing address and you can look at the actual tax bill online. There are many commercial "skip tracing" services available. It is beyond the scope of this public forum for an attorney to reccomend any particular service. The attorney who handles your liens and foreclosures is probably the best source for a personalized recommendation.
