If the deed is in the husband and wife's name, and they have both passed then the property will most likely need to be probated. At that time the heirs are named based on the probate. Then they have the legal right to sign.
You will need to consult with an attorney who handles wills/probates/estates.

Good Luck

Hello,
The tenant will not pay a fee to the Realtor to help them find a place to rent. The landlord or property manager will pay a set fee or persentage of the first months rent to the Realtor. The tenant will need to pay an application fee to the landlord or property mgr of $35-$100.

Sorry there is not such thing that you would want to live in unless you share a place with another person at 600 to 1000.

Also depends on your credit score!

Hi Kaitlyn,
Do you prefer 33907 zip code area? Would probably need to be a home because condo associations don't usually allow pets.

Please contact me at 239-989-7077.

Kindest Regards, Pam Wittenauer

Donald Stevens answered:
Banks usually require the home to be insured for replacement cost, not market value. If the home burns down they want the home to be rebuilt, not cashed out. If you purchase a homeowners or landlord policy, depending on the occupancy of your home, then you will meet your banks insuring requirement and will not need "forced place insurance" or as you called it, lenders insurance. If you have insurance you can provide proof to the bank and they will drop the forced place insurance.

You could do a lease with the option to purchase the condo and take 10% down with a monthly paymnt equal or greater to what a mtg payment would be and then you have tenants with the pride of ownership and you get a higher return on your investment. And in the worse case senario and they default you keek full deposit and monthy portion going toward closing in your pocket and do it again. I did this stratagy on my primary residents and it went through with the 2nd family. If you are interested in my help please do not hesitate to contact me at.

That community is desirable, however have you considered Reflection Isles? It's a very nice community with much lower HOA's. I wrote a recent blog on it and I'd encourage you too look at this short read:

Let me know if you have any questions! I can also send you additional information on homes in that community.

Beacon Blvd has a street light at the intersection of Crystal Dr. Evangelical Christian School is at the north end of Beacon. Also north of Crystal are two churches, a couple of condo complexes, a childcare, Beacon Executive Center and the entrance to the Danley Road industrial park.
Going south on Beacon are several speed humps which have slowed traffic somewhat that tries to cut through Sunrise. South of Sunrise is less busy. Hope that helps you. I have been navigating Lee County as a resident since 1982 and I would be very happy to help you as your buyers agent.

Tom Teece answered:
Hi Dan,

Sorry to hear about your situation. I work every day in Lehigh Acres with families like yours facing foreclosure. You can get free financial assistance. However, the HUD approved housing counseling agencies place 3 requirements on the homeowner asking for help. Good news! You don't have to wait until you can't pay. Call them immediately. It will help your negotiations with the lender if you can minimize future missed payments.

(1) You must be an owner-occupant, occupied, no “walk-aways” or investment properties.

Exceptions: when it is verifiable that the owner’s need to vacate was related to the cause of default (job loss, transfer, divorce, death), and the subject property was not purchased as a rental investment, or used as a rental for more than 12 months.

(Note: Investment property may qualify using other procedures. Property owners can contact me for free confidential help and to find out about their particular options.)

(2) Your mortgage must be in default as the result of a documentable involuntary loss of income or unavoidable increase in expenses. Have your mortgage statement and list of bills when you call.

(3) You must contact a HUD-approved Housing Counseling Agency BEFORE making a commitment to a particular method of dealing with your mortgage or financial problems. Call 1-888-995-HOPE.

You will receive information regarding options and alternatives that you may be entitled to, or which may be available to you -- other than the sale of your property to a third party -- to avoid foreclosure. Write down the date, counselor's name, phone number and email address, even if the counselor says they cannot help you. Your mortgage lender will want this information. It provides 3rd party verification of your financial condition, and confirms your request for government help. Contact me if I can be of further assistance to you.

Best regards, Tom
