How do I find out if property taxes are paid as well as fire insurance? And should I pay those?
A quick telephone call to the Tax Collector’s office can tell you if taxes are current. To find out about insurances may take investigating if you are not listed as an additional insured on an existing policy. Possibly you are receiving notices from the insurance company and have contact information; maybe you can ask the owner of the property; or if you suspect there is no insurance it might be wise to place your own and have us make note of it as an advance to protect your interest.
Generally, we would recommend payment. Advances by the lender to pay taxes and insurance are allowable and chargeable to the borrower.
