why doesn't he know where doc brown lives ?

As a scientist with no social skills, Doc's financial standing is highly questionable. So it's likely he's moved many times due to eviction, non payment of rent and other missteps. This isn't discussed in the movie very much but Marty obviously knows this and he's essentially skip-tracing Doc because of it

The street where Doc lives in 1955 has a different name

It's John Kennedy in 1985, don't remember the name in the 50's

You ever think that in 30 years a lot of things can change, you know like a street name being called Martin Luther King Drive.
Hell the Doc could have moved at least once.

his family was rich, they owned that giant house. he then sold it and invested all his money into his experiments (mainly time travel). He still has so much money in 1955, he buys a house in a neighborhood that would attend Hill Valley High School on a whim so that Marty can attend school with his dad/mom.

in 1985, he's doing his experiments out of a warehouse building, so 1985 marty doesn't know where doc lives in 1955; he knows it was a big house, just not know exactly where.

The beginning of the movie’s montage includes a taped up newspaper article in Doc’s garage reporting on how he had to sell his estate due to being broke.
