There is no law about it BUT you need to check with the HOA. Most likely your HOA has rules about renting, guests and what is acceptable. If the tenant has a secretary and that violates HOA rules, the HOA will come after you to evict the tenant. ... more

Trulia is a media website that hosts listings posted by owners, landlords and realtors. Trulia does not have any forms for use. You can go to NY's housing website and see if they have forms or a title company. Do not use rental forms from retail stores because they are not state specific and leave out information that you need to have. Realtors have rental forms but they are branded with their brokerage logo on it. ... more

I had a Campo House built on my own lot. For a high end structure, it is missing so many features that you would expect. No door stops, kitchen cabinet shelves do not line up with glass, moldings make the floor radiators not lie flat, cheesy steel frames in closets, property not properly graded ,to name a few. These are the small issues. Since I owned my land, when the C/o came in they were "done" even though the house wasn't. For the past three months I have been trying to get them to put in the screens, bury propane tanks, fix a large crack in basement, replace fireplace tiles that came broken, fix a leak in the basement and several other issues. They are sweet as punch and promise me that by next week it will be taken care of ... for 3 months now. Bear in mind that almost anything we wanted was an upgrade. Money was asked for immediately from me, yet I can't get satisfaction for a completed, well-done job. ... more

Assessed value as nothing to do with a foreclosure auction. Most often the bank bids 80% of the owed amount if there is PMI. When there are no bids at or above the bank takes it back. They then can appraise it as is and sell it for what it's market value less repairs are. ... more

The lender should not be seeing the inspection report, but if they did, they could ask questions based on condition. It is highly unusual to deny a loan based on home inspection

Kathy Burgreen answered:
I'm confused by your question. Are you buying a multifamily home and it is occupied by a tenant? Does the tenant have a lease?

I'm a retired realtor and life long NYC area resident. I know Bayside really well because I have family living there. I will assume the tenant has no lease and is renting month to month. The question is if you are buying a 2 family house, it is the seller's responsibility to evict the tenant. At this point, you can try small claims court BUT since this is NYC, you need to beware for plenty of red tape and bureaucracy and delays. You also need to know that NYC is VERY tenant friendly. ... more

It is the job of the loan officer to communicate, if they are not communicating, contact a manager. It is also the job of a buyer broker to assist in communicating with the loan officer. There are other issues such as your commitment date on your contract, this should be far before 3 days before closing? You need to get some answers and be prepared to stay on the phone and call to you get some ... more

Your question has nothing to do with real estate. Realtors cannot answer questions about crime. It violates Fair Housing laws and they can lose their license.

You need to go to the tax assessor's office / website for the county the home is located in. Usually the exact address will be sufficient. If you are in NYC, this does not work for co-op and condo buildings. ... more

No single answer to your question. No house is perfect. No one knows everything. Get a price credit? Bail on the deal? Live with the defects? Fix them?
