You would go to the registar and recorders office. It is the place all deeds and mortgages are recorded and filed for public record.
You would look for NOD’s (notice of default) or Lis Pendens depending on your state as to what they are called. It is the first step in the foreclosure process. From the date of notice till auction date varies by state form 60days to a year of more.
