Hello Sarah, we can not give you any legal advice. You can call the Inland Mediation Board of Los Angeles. They are free legal advice service for landlord and tenant rights. Give them a call and let us know what they say and the outcome.

If you need rental listings emailed to you to study and consider any agent can set you up or you can get an idea thru the Trulia setup.

If you change it to "No Address", I would not be interested and only stick to rentals that list an address. No Address to me means it's a scam.

RD 1.5 zoning means that you can have 1 dwelling per 1500sq ft. So if you had a 2999sq lot, you could only have 1 dwelling. If the lot was 3200sq ft, you could have two. RD 2 is 2000sq ft RD 4 is 4000sq ft, etc... ... more

Sorry, the pipe flooded my bedroom not the whole apartment. Also the only way for me to enter the rest of the apartment (kitchen/bathroom) is to leave my bedroom door, climb up the basement stairs, walk around the exterior of the house, and enter through the front door of the apartment building. ... more

Sure no problem right now. Yes in CA you may consider 5% down Jumbo with a minimum 720 fico score from 424k up to 1.5 million and 10% down from a minimum 680 fico score and up to 2.5 million.

Your qualifications will be determined by your credit profile, debt to income ratios, fico scores, loan program and how much you want to invest into the down payment and closing costs. Your fico scores can be raised within 3-4 days in most cases to qualify for programs, rates and terms as necessary.

Kathy Burgreen answered:
Typically lenders are in 1st position and they supersede the HOA to foreclose. However, HOA's can garnish your income or file a legal claim on your bank account in order to collect the money owed. I'm sure the HOA has your bank information and your employer's information or your Social Security number. At this point, contact a lawyer. ... more

You should discuss your concerns with your Broker, the one your agent works for as soon a you can. It is possible to change agents and/or brokers; it would likely require you to terminate any Agency you currently have with your present representatives.
Agents typically work for a broker and your purchase agreement, and other agreements, are actually with the broker not the agent. When you are represented by an agent/broker a legal "Agency" is created. Some possible reasons to seek termination of Agency could be due to the broker's/agent's professional abilities or conduct. Examples could include misrepresentations or failure to disclose, lack of knowledge with an area or type of property, being non-responsive to the client by failing to be timely or return calls, disclosures of conflicts of interest, self-dealing or negotiating skills. Before you hire a new agent, you should be certain that any Agency you have with your old broker is properly terminated and you should advise your new agent of the previous purchase agreement.
Talk with your agent and your broker.

Hope this helps!

Rich Reed answered:
Here is some general information, since I do not know which purchase agreement forms were used nor what they may say. In CA, CAR forms state: Real Estate Brokers are not parties to the Agreement between Buyer and Seller. So all pertinent communications about the Agreement would need to be delivered to the buyer (or seller) as soon as practical. If the CAR "NOTICE TO BUYER TO PERFORM" was used, there is a "CONFIRMATION OF RECEIPT" which either the buyer or the authorized agent can initial. Your agent should send you a copy of the notice since you requested it, but the form does not have to be signed by the buyer. Notices to perform should be taken seriously and you as the client are ultimately responsible. Your agent should have been advising you on how to handle this and discussed any particular strategy he/she recommends. Your agent may be delaying the "personal receipt" of the notice to gain more time to comply, which is somewhat of a gray tactic, in my opinion. In any case, your agent should be keeping you in the loop about what's going on. You might want to talk with your Broker, the one your agent works for, and bring up your concerns.
