Um, okay "experts" for your information tax records, like many other documents, can be fabricated to reflect anything you want the person in front of you to see. (Anybody own a recent addition of turbo tax?) Bank records are more reliable - especially if self employed since you have a number tax write--offs that can be legally generated if you work out of home -- but nonetheless both can be created to match anything you want to be conveyed.

Since the landlord can't confirm or access tax information (or banking) over the phone -- think an IRS agent is going to give a nosey landlord your personal information over the phone? -- think again, for all those intellectually challenged there's something called the privacy act! (Um, anyone remember the issues surrounding identify fraud?)

As for relying on a lawyer to give "legal advice" on this common sense inquiry, seriously? What ever happen to problem solving using common sense? So sad.... Hope this helps the not so informed......

You do realize that nobody knows which townhouse you're talking about.

The best way to view any property is to find yourself a buyer's agent who will make appointments for you, and help guide you through the process.

Good luck.

Kathy Burgreen answered:
You need to do it on Zillow. Claim your home and Zillow allows owners to edit home facts. Once it's correct on Zillow, it will sync to Trulia. Zillow and Trulia are the same company. Bear in mind that real estate websites like Zillow, Trulia, etc. pay 3rd party vendors to copy information that is public from county tax assessor's offices throughout the U.S. Therefore, if your county tax assessor has your information listed incorrectly, you need to correct it first with your county tax assessor before correcting it on Zillow.com ... more

Save yourself a headache and visit the county tax assessor's office in person and look up the status of the property. The appraiser may use the tax status on file. This is separate from zoning. You need to know how the property is taxed as - not zoned. ... more

Hallk5508 answered:
I'm assuming the "fees" were for background checks of various types, to which the landlord actually paid third parties, out of pocket. IMO, those fees are never refundable. I would not call it an Application "Deposit," rather just an "Application." If the landlord finds anything unsatisfactory about you during this process, the apartment will not be rented to you. Period.

You verified that you wanted the apartment and paid a Security Deposit so that the landlord would not rent it to someone else, n'est-ce pas? Did you have a written agreement outlining what the Deposit was for? Did it mention forfeiture if you changed your mind (as you admit you did)? Yes, a Security Deposit is quite normal. Sometimes it can easily amount to twice the monthly rent, typically to cover the last month's rent and a damage deposit -- especially in a market where apartments are scarce...and expensive.

Ask yourself how much the landlord may have lost, having an unrented apartment for even one month. Actually, it doesn't matter. He has your money; you're holding nothing but perhaps a cancelled check... and hot air. In real estate negotiations, NEVER ASSUME ANYTHING. Get everything in writing.
