property lien question

I have a deal that seems to be good but I would like to make sure that they dont have any liens on the property before I start negotiating my shortsale…does anyone know the best way to find out lien info? I know that I can find it through the county recorder but im hoping there is a website that allows you to search this online. I am in the Orange County, California area. Thanks for your time and help!

Call the title company that you’ll be closing with, and ask them to give you the lien info on the property. They’ll be happy to help you out.


Thanks thats a great idea! I appreciate your help.
