You would need a release to get it back. Your buyer agent should guide you through this. If you are buying without an agent, you may need a lawyer to review your contract and just write a simple release based on inspection results, ... more

Hi there! There may be some landlords who would consider you even with the eviction if you are able to put down a higher security deposit. It would also help if you have contacted the property who filed your eviction and make payment arrangments with them to pay it off. Get that in writing and show it to the landlord that you apply with. Or if you've already taken care of the eviction, make sure you have a receipt showing the debt is paid.
Best Wishes!

Work with your agent to have the seller fix the remaining items. You have much less leverage now and your next option is Small claims court.

Just Looking, an abandoned house next door always has a chilling effect on your potential buyers. Call the Mayor's office to ask if they would consider buying up some of the abandoned homes you mention.
They have announced they are thinking about doing that. Remember, rehabbed homes pull up the values of the neighborhood as well and make it more attractive. You seem to imply quite a lot of rehab going on there. Contact your Realtor and ask for a comparison of price per sq ft pre-rehab solds and post-rehab solds. Remember to get the average days on market for each category for 2008 and same time 2007.
Ask the Realtor what kind of repairs were put into the homes that sold. Finally, don't spend more on the rehab than the return indicated by your Realtor's market study. If you do that, great. I am a big advocate of renovating our existing housing stock. Also - pretty sells, appliances sell and garages sell. Hope this helps.
