rates notices and housing titles

    Does anybody know much about how rates are issued and how titles on houses are changed? I ask because I have just been informed by a friend of mine that the house we purchased a few months ago has rates due, but they are being sent to the previous owner. From our experience the previous owner is a worthless sack of fecal deposits with a lot of money to throw around and he is FAR from honest about things. My concern is that somehow we will discover that he is still the legal owner of the property and he will sell it again on us when we have finished working on it.
