Amos Elroy answered:
I would recommend blocking the air ducts temporarily just to test. Then air the home out for half an hour. If the smell returns after you have shut the windows again, it is more than likely coming from the walls and fixtures that have been saturated previously.

If on the other hand the smell does not return until after you have removed the seal off of the air duct openings, you will know its coming from there.

Look at the HUD see where the shortage is coming from or do you know already...

Escrows are items not covered by your title. Contact your mortgage rep and their dept. they are the ones who dictate the escrows. The closing company just carries out the obligations that they are told to do.

Hi Rich,
Great question! I would suggest you go to your city's building department (from your zip 07302 would be Jersey City's building department) and ask them which permits you will need to accomplish this task. Depending on the block, the permits needed and requirements can vary.

If you have any further questions, please free to reach me, my contact information is immediately below:

All the very best,

Kevin Dowd answered:

You're buying in a great area of Jersey City. I would recommend a thorough home inspection that would include the roof and the basement to try and uncover any potential defects.

I would also check the finances of the building to see if they have adequate reserves to cover minor and medium sized emergencies.

If all looks well after this, it's in your budget and you really like it, then go for it.

Good luck.

Walter Burns answered:

The condo you referenced above sold for $366,000 in 2003. Currently it is being sold as a short-sale/pre-foreclosure. All offers are subject to the seller's lender accepting them.

2 bedroom units were selling for $485,000 to $500,000+ in 2003.

Please let me know if you have any additional questions.

The monthly maintenance for that unit is approx. $580 per month. It is a co-op building so that will include your taxes.
