Is a mortgage tax/stamp fee assessed when you are building a new home in Florida? (.70/$100)
Yes. It's Stamp Tax on the Deed, so you won't get a Deed without it.

What happens if you can't get an Estoppel letter? Is there anyway we can still close?
Go to sunbiz.org and look up the community. There you should find the current board members. Sent the request to all board members and you will get a reply.

we have ANOTHER home to report as a money -seeking spam. 2720
Sorry, but in my experience Trulia is not a great place to look for rentals. Resales, yes. Rentals, no. Best advice is to find a local property manager and work with them.
