I'm also looking for a 2 bdrm or a 1 bdrm with a den (and) or a basement to make into a bdrm apartment or house on Staten Island with washer and dryer hook ups & storage (& hopefully a dishwasher but not a deal breaker). It's just me and my 12 yr old son and I have 2 small 10 lb Miniature Pinches & a cat all in their teens and fully trained and I'm OK with a pet fee. Since I don't have a car I have to be very near a main bus or train line and supermarket. No where ghetto or in the boon docks. I can pay up to $1300/$1350 with all the bells and whistles I'm asking for, $1400 w/bells & whistles and utilities included. But If it doesn't have w/d hook ups or storage I can only pay $1100/$1200. ... more

After Sandy, homes in contract were supposed to be re-inspected to remove any doubts about post Sandy condition.

Can you prove the seller lost their job? What does your attorney say about all of this?

David Rivera answered:
This of course is for a New York City property.

First the question is are the others willing to sell? if they are the steps given by the other agents would be a good way to go.

If they are not willing to sell.
. The only way that I am aware of , to sell the house is by going to court and asking for a partition action. The courts will order the property to be sold at auction .
There is no minimum bid and anyone bidding must have the funds.
I have experience these types of sales, so before you take this route please try to come to an agreement with your siblings.

I have seen a home sold for as little as $1000.00 and another sold for as much $125,000.00

This is not to be construed as legal advice, please consult an attorney for legal advice.

another option if you are not ready to buy
Try Curbing your spending and make it a goal to pay off some of your other debt.
Once you accomplish your goal you will feel a lot better about buying.

Justine Address answered:

Hope this helps.

It is assumed that the Seller has to pay transfer taxes on a resale but it could be in negotiation regarding who pays it. If the purchase price is agreed between the buyer and seller, the seller doesn't have to pay the taxes.

It is the same theory when it comes to new constructions. Depending on how both sides feel about the final agreement on the purchase price, the buyer can always ask the seller to pay for transfer taxes and the seller can come back for paying half. There is no law to this issue, it all depends on the negotiation as far as I know.
