Hi Joseph,

it is completely negotiable in the contract. However it may complicate the deal,
depending on how the seller feels about this.

Please feel free to contact me at (310) 584-7721 if you have questions. I would be happy to answer any questions.

Hi Shoppergirl;
I like this site:
Not only does it explain Mello Roos, but you can check to see if your property is located in a Mello Roos district, in a report they sell.
Mello-Roos is a form of financing that can be used by cities, counties, and special districts (such as school disricts). Mello-Roos Community Facilities Districts (referred to as "CFDs") raise money through special taxes that must be approved by 2/3rds of the voters within the district. A CFD is formed to finance major improvements and services within the district which might include schools, roads, libraries, police and fire protection services, or ambulance services. The taxes are secured by a continuing lien and are levied annually against property within the district. One of the best examples of this in our area is Playa Vista.

As somebody who actually works out, the best condo is the one close to a real gym. Condo Gyms at best are afterthoughts with a treadmill and a couple of free weights. Nothing wrong with that, but if a gym is really a consideration, then a real gym is the only way to go. Just my 2 cents. ... more

There is always some degree of liabilty. Have your agent send in a cancellation form if you wish to cancell never just assume. When in doubt check with an attorney. Is there it full or limited. Your agent should be able to answer for you..Good luck

Heather Paul answered:
All licensed Realtors or Real Estate agents must present all offers. However, if the offer is not what the seller is wiling to offer, they do not have to respond to the offer. It is always better to counteroffer to keep the communication lines open, however there could possibly be other offers already received for the property. Many of our properties are receiving multiple offers right now and severely under bidding could possibly mean you will lose out on a good house you might have really wanted. Also, if it is a probate sale, it has to be approved by the court. ... more
