I received an email this morning from someone planning to rent here in the Reno area asking how they could find out if the property in which they are interested in renting is in foreclosure or has a NOD (Notice of Default) filed against it. This is not the first time I have been asked this question, so I thought I’d point our readers to the resource that Washoe County has set up specifically for renters.
Washoe County’s website has set up a page called Information for Renters about Foreclosure. Clicking on this link will take you instructions [scroll down] on using EagleWeb, the Washoe County Recorder’s Office documents database. Among other things, EagleWeb allows users to find out if a home has a recorded Notice of Default or Notice of Sale.
Check it out. It’s free and easy to use.
