How can I find out if a property is mortgaged? I am the beneficiary of my recently deceased fathers will.. I live on the East Coast as do my other 3 siblings who are also beneficiaries,my father had dementia so we didn't have much information in regards to his financial status. Only what my brother was telling us.My father purchased the home in 2002 when he relocated to Ca. The executor(my brother) is telling us that there is a large balance due on the property,We have asked for proof and have been put off time and time again.The home is about to be sold,for $90,000 less than it was listed for originally 6 months ago.So, I would like to know if there is a way to find out if there is a mortgage and how much it is?
Thank you in advance for any help... By the way .... The property and will are from California
