How to Find Out the Names of Tennessee Property Owners

Table of Contents

Tennessee is home to some of the most beautiful properties in the United States. The landscape of this charming southern state includes mountains, valleys, and coastal plains. You can enjoy the musical history and thriving culture of both Memphis and Nashville when you visit the state. Not to mention the Graceland! Tennessee is both a tourist paradise and a lovely place to live or run a business.

Whether you already live in the state or are new here, it’s easy to fall in love with parcels of land perfect for residences or commercial interests. You can find great deals on off-market properties — but the best buys require you to do a little research before you’re able to close a deal. If you are interested in buying off-market Tennessee land, you need to be able to figure out who owns it. Fortunately, you can use several methods to learn the names of Tennessee property owners, including state records, county records, and property databases. Tennessee land is there for you to buy, so do not pass up your chance to obtain some of it.

State of Tennessee Comptroller of the Treasury

County assessors and other interested parties can find information on Tennessee property by using the State Comptroller of the Treasury online page. This site contains property information on 75 of 85 Tennessee counties

To use this resource, first, choose the county where the property is located. Then, if you know the name of the property owner, you can fill it in and search for property details in that way. Of course, often you do not know the name of the Tennessee property owners, so you can either search by the property address or the land parcel number. To use any of these methods, you have to enter at least one letter or number in the form. The easiest way to find the information you need is to enter the address of the land you are interested in, data you should be able to get from local realtors or people located near the property.

County Register’s Office

In Tennessee, the county register records land transactions, including deeds. To find out the names of Tennessee landowners, you can either visit the county courthouse and ask the register’s office to run a deed search for you or, in some counties, you can run this search online. Be aware that you will probably have to pay a fee for both of these methods. For instance, in Hamilton County, you will have to pay a $50 monthly fee for this online service. Still, you should be able to get the information you need to contact the current owners and ask about acquiring the property. 

The Tennessee State Library and Archives

You can also use a state-wide resource. The State of Tennessee registers deeds in the Tennessee State Library and Archives. This institution keeps microfilmed copies of the deeds for every county in the state, filed under the name of the seller/buyer, also known as the grantor/grantee. Unfortunately, this system cannot run a deed search by property location, but once you learn the name of Tennessee property owners, you can order deed records online to acquire more valuable information about the property. 

Tennessee County Tax Assessors 

In Tennessee, you can also run property searches by visiting the county tax assessor’s office in the county courthouse or by visiting the county’s tax assessor’s webpage. For instance, in Shelby County, home of Memphis, Tennessee, you can search for information about a residential or commercial property by entering the address, owner’s name, business name, or parcel number. The process may vary slightly from county to county, but the individual tax assessors should be able to help you get the names of Tennessee property owners. 

Property Database/Prospect Now 

Using a property database like ProspectNow is an efficient way to gather information on Tennessee property owners. This database has listings on over 100 million residential properties and 42 million commercial parcels. In fact, this extensive database allows you to search for property throughout the United States

In addition to learning the names of Tennessee property owners, you can find other essential information, including the property’s listing status, taxable value, location, etc. And unlike some other search methods, you can find everything you need from the comfort of your own home. For commercial properties, you can also find essential information such as the owner’s contact information. 

Tennessee properties are in great demand, so a tool like ProspectNow is invaluable when you are looking to buy a home or business there. By using the database, you can acquire predictive analytics which will give you insights into which properties are likely to sell or refinance in the next 12 months. In addition, you can find accurate sales comparables that are quite helpful for buyers.
