In the U.S. it is very simple to find out who owns a property, and how much property they own. You can go to almost any County or State webpage, go to the Auditor, and search the property records.
It is not that simple in Australia. Anyone know of an easy way to search for property owners within specific jurisdictions? I.e. I know they live at 100 Main Street, Melbourne. Or I am looking for John Smith who I know lives in Geelong.
