Running serial numbers on used equipment helpppp please!!!!

So someone just may have opened my eyes to something I never thought of. I am in the market for a used walk behind, and honestly, I was planning to buy one through someone selling theirs locally, not a shop. I figured either through here, or craigslist I would find the item of my liking, negotiate a price, pay cash, and walk away (drive away) with the mower.

Someone responding to one of my last posts suggested running serial numbers, to make sure there were no leins on the mower, it was paid off, not stolen, etc.

Have any of you done that when you purchased a machine used? how would I even do that? it seems like so much effort. would I ask for the serial numbers when negotiating before even seeing the equipment???

any help here would be most appeciated.
