I have an issue with water, my original contact states tenant does not pay for water trash and sewage, now the contract is over (month to month) and they put the bill in my name without even notifying us, AND we have no water meter, so I being single person who uses water delivery for all drinking and cooking, I have to pay for water for 7 other families of 2 or 6 or 4 people in each unit, AND i went on vacation for 3 months and I told them, i should not be charged when i am using ZERO water, they said i am responsible for the communities water, ?? so because they are to cheap to put meters in, i have to pay outrageous amount when i am using almost no water.

Anyone know any laws i can look up to see if this is legal? I live in oceanside CA. thanks

I have several rental properties.
Yes, you must declare rental income. However, the cost, such as mortgage interest, depreciation, tax, repair expense, and property management expense (such as gas mileage, office supplies, and phone bills, etc) are subtracted from the rental income. In some competitive market, you may end up with lose, and all you got is the equity on the house, and the cash flow is zero or negative (i have one just like that). Not many rentals have sizable positive cash flow unless you bought at a really low price,- way below market price,

If you bought your property at fair market price, chances are your taxable income (after all deductions) is fairly small, if any.

Racism has not died in this country first of all.

Next people who do own these places are all about money like that person but in the end its wrong due the fact people don't make a amount of money like others then you seem to them as is you and your children don't have the amount of education that will lift you up.

It's known as (class) discrimination) sort of like what happens in India if you read about.

It can take generations to lift a person out of this sort of discrimination as you may know.

Now I must inform you that I'm homeless Black Male i don't do drugs i don't drink and I don't have a history of crime.

But in the end it does not matter. I know it will be hard to find a place and i need all the assistance i can get at this point in time in my life but i will not let this destroy me or my goals i have set for myself in life.

But gets to me is the pain after talking to the person I'm trying to rent from they only see my skin color and at times after I've walked out of where ever I've been I have started to cry not from being a shame of my self but because of them not seeing me as a person but as a threat to them and their property .

I will find my home I will have a safe place to live, but most of all I will be the same kind person that I am whom I work so hard to become over a life time.

So i say to all of you that can understand these words keep trying keep you head high but most of all show these people we are human beings and we have self respect.

Good luck

Oh ya we are good enough to die for the oil for the cars and everything else but not good enough to rent a place at a low price.

Thank you for your service doesn't get a roof over your head in the dead of winter.Think about folks

Hello Sue, why short term lease? You did not mention how many bedrooms, baths or the maximum payment you are looking to afford? You may have to put additional deposits as well for pet deposits.

The rentals in Thousand Oaks start from $1,335 for a studio apt, If you figure out what cites/zip codes you are considering, minimum number of bedrooms and the maximum payment/price you are looking to achieve you can be emailed listings to fit your search criteria.

Hello Africanqueen3450, yes but you may be required additional deposits. It will be up to each rental management company guidelines or each landlord/owner's choice. Santa Clara is a higher rent area so what are you looking to afford?

The rentals in Santa Clara start from $1,650 for 1bd 1ba apt. There is a waiting list for studio apts from $751 monthly rent posted. You may be able to find a room for rent that may be affordable as well.

If you figure out what cities/zip codes you are considering, minimum number of bedrooms, baths and the maximum payment you are looking to afford you can be set up for daily automatic emails to fit your search criteria.

FYI, you may consider FHA financing two years after a BK discharge date. You may then consider as low as 3.5% down FHA from a minimum 580 fico score. Lower scores between 500-579 will require 10% down to qualify FHA. You will then also be able to consider down payment and closing cost assistance programs from a minimum 640 fico score.

Good luck to you.
