Both are correct grammar. However, their meanings differ.

"is previous" - John used to own it, but no longer does.
"was previous" - John used to own it, but is now deceased. Implied is that John likely divested his ownership prior to death.

Alive, Owner: "is owner"
Alive, Past Owner: "is previous owner"
Decease, Past Owner: "was previous owner"
