Greensboro, NC -- Residents at Cascades Grandview Apartments in Greensboro have been telling News 2 they can't find the owner of the property and now we know why.

According to the Secretary of State's office, state law doesn't require property owners to reveal their names on documents when they register.

For months News 2 has been trying to get an interview with the local resident manager, Tina watts, to no avail. She has refused to release names of the property owners as well.

The property is registered under "Cascades Grandview LLC."
In 2010, a man named Hugo Camacho signed the Deed of Trust now held by the Guilford County Register of Deeds' office.

Several numbers listed for him are disconnected - except one - News 2 left a message and still hasn't gotten a response.

Reporter, Faith Abubey also searched the Secretary of State's records and found
"Gentco Real Estate, LLC" listed as the manager.

They apparently have no website and no number in Henrico, Virginia; the address they used to file the document.

The Virginia's Secretary of State's office tells news 2 that Gentco is represented by attorney Richard Sayers. Our calls were sent to a voicemail and we have yet to get a response.

News 2's reporting highlights what residents and even firefighters have been going through. Wednesday night, firefighters had to condemn and evacuate the property because they couldn't find a manager to take responsibility of the residents after power was cut to the building.

There's seemingly no one to hold accountable and we've found the property is delinquent on county taxes. There's an outstanding balance of more than $24,000 and another one for 2012 due in September for $87,000
