Ramon Morales answered:
Yes...if a thirty day notice is noted in your lease, then that is what's required. Many property managers prefer to get sixty days, however, having an extensive background in property management, I can tell you that if the lease states 60 days, and you give thirty, legally, as per the courts in the State of Florida, they cannot hold you accountable. Florida law, which of course will supersede the lease, allows for only a 30 day notice, although it is still good form to give sixty, if that's what's required as per the lease. In this case, I would speak with your landlord and see what kind of buyout you can negotiate in order for both of you to walk away satisfied.

Hope this helps.

I'm an American married to a Canadian. We have many sources, but without knowing more about your situation, I'm not sure what the best source for you would be. Are you living and working here now? Do you have US Credit or do you need to rely on your Canadian Credit.
There are options, let me know some of the answers and I can suggest some options for you.

You can do a little homework first, check with current owners "word of mouth" and tenants, verify the amount of vacancies and rental market for your property. Make sure that you read the agreement and you are satisfied with the same. Good luck.

Antonio Vega-Pacheco answered:
It may be difficult to show rental homes with more than 30 days to move in date since they are likely occupied by tenants who have not yet said if they are leaving or staying for another year.

Therefore 30 days prior to needing the property is the best time to start looking, but mid-December should be considered as needing to move December 1st, so start looking on November 1st.

Cristina Callegari answered:
In order for a home to be financeable it must have a roof that is free of leaks, a boiler in working order, pipes that are free of leaks and an electrical system that is in working order. Additionally, the home must have a CofO, be clear of violations and have no open permits. These are the requirements that most lenders have for most loans. When a house is in bad shape it is too risky for the owner to accept a financed offer as the chance of it not being approved by the lender is very high. An all-cash deal is a fast, easy and typically pain-free transaction for the seller. ... more

Ron Climer answered:
The hard part about finding a house with owner financing is that often the listing agent doesn't know what owner financing is. The owner doesn't know. If the buyer's agent doesn't know, there is only one person left, the buyer. That is you. You have to understand owner financing and you hve to explainit to the seller. Here is a good start

Once you understand owner financing, where do you find people that will hold financing? Start with house that are free and clear. Ask, What is the price? Will you hold a Mortgage? If the answer is no, say good bye and find someone that will. More often that no, you will hear, I don't understatand owner financing. If you can help the seller to understand it, you can buy his house with him holding the mortgage.

Carlos Herrera answered:
Are they looking to refi for more than they owe currently?

Aside from working with the current lender as one of the options, have they looked into contacting a lender or mortgage pro from the state in which the home is located?

I am working with an out of state buyer who is buying in Florida. They did not allow this buyer to get a loan for a Florida home when she looked into it in her current state, but she is working on a loan currently in Florida (while still being out of state) and it's going thru so far as a second home.

All good answers proceed me. I will offer this comment

Agree. It is the Wild Wild West of Shorts, foreclosures, and bank owned. Best advice, Highest and Best offer, have an expiration date for the offer so that you are not locked in long term and can quickly move on to the next. Earnest Deposit due upon acceptance of offer and the higher the better.

Try not to get your self into making multiple offers, that may come back and bite you. Trust your Realtor and work quickly. Make sure you are getting your offers in right away, you should be on auto emails for the newest available listings. If not give me a call and I can set you up. Your diligence will pay off.

Let me know if I can help...I am easy to find.

I am not a secret agent, just a good one. Good Luck.
