Taunton is pretty bad with their drug problem. If you are looking for a better community you could try North Attleboro, Norton, maybe Rehoboth but Taunton is one of the worst in the area. ... more

Hi Nancy,
I'm sorry to hear of the challenges you are facing at this time with your family. Give me a call and I will give you the number for a landlord that owns more than 120+ apartments in your local area. Hope to hear from you soon. Thank you

Towns differ with their methods for their water readings.
Some allow anyone, some want their staff to read it.

Electric, phone, heat, etc. are handled by the owner.

If the sale did not go through as long as you did not sign anything saying you would pay a fee regardless of out come you should be all set.

Cheryl, I see many answers from all sorts of agents from all sorts of locations throughout the country, myself included. Taunton is typically a tougher market as most of your major retailers are on the Raynham side coming into town. So much has to do with your exact location and the amount of land you have. The commercial market is not hurting right now, there is still very little well located commercial property available for sale. I can give you an experts opinion if you want.

Delig, sounds like you'll want to speak to an attorney. Talk to your agent about the listing sheet as "subject to seller finding suitable housing" should be disclosed as well. This is also something that should have been on the P&S with a cap date. ... more

Feonie, as long as all parties agree to close at an earlier date, and the closing attorney has everything he or she needs.

Yes, Karla, you do have to live in the home. Mass Housing makes it a requirement

Hi Karla- I'm a local lender, and yes- you're parents could do that under the proper circumstances. If it is a single family and they are not living there, they would have to get into it as either a second home or an investment property. If you would like to review your particulars, please let me know.
Thanks, and good luck,

Ken L.

Lori Lincoln answered:
Yes, if your contract has expired, the P&S should give you a closing date. If the closing didn't happen, then you no longer have a contract.. UNLESS.. you signed an extension to close that you may or may not remember?
If you don't want to buy the home and you are "out of contract", your agent should have you and your seller sign a deposit release. You should also consult an attorney if your earnest money isn't returned.
