I don't believe your neighbor has the right to enter your property. They can cut anything hanging over their own property. You should try and work it out with your neighbor or contact a lawyer. ... more

Bob Brandt answered:
Sometimes these kind of offerings fly below the radar of the public listing sites and even off the MLS, so you may want to make some calls to Realtors in the area you want to live and ask them if they have any or know any owners who may be willing to rent it now and then you buy it later. They will want to know your credit profile and how sure you will be able to buy it later. ... more

It is a simple process to look it up. Send me the address and I can look it up for you. Ignore the out of state advise as foreclosure laws are very different in all states.

Chances are the agent that finds you the home will not charge you anything. In most cases they will get paid by the landlord. However, if the landlord refuses to pay you may have to offer the agent some compensation. It is all negotiable. ... more

As long as you are in the property, you are required to pay rent. That's what your lease says and that's what a judge will look at. If the landlord told you to stop, ask him to put it in writing. Without a writing signed by the landlord, the landlord can say at a later date that you are in violation of your lease and start eviction.

When the new owner takes over, they are bound by the lease that you have. If you are month to month, the new landlord has to give you a 30 day notice that your lease will be terminated. If you got a 30 day notice today, you would have to be out by September 1st (assuming that your rent is due on the first of each month.

Ranj Mohip answered:
Yes. The landlord/old owner will have to turn over unused rent and the security deposit plus interest to the new owner. Unused rent would be this: July rent was paid and you are closing on July 15. Rent from July 1-15 belongs to the landlord/old owner and the remainder goes to the new owner. Your attorney should take care of this and your lender should know about it so there are no surprises at the closing.

Laura Karambelas answered:
Your agent should be able to give you and idea on whether or not the home will qualify for an FHA loan. I just had a listing that sold FHA (a regular FHA loan) and needed interior rehab work. Carpet & floors replaced, new kitchen, updating bathrooms, painting, etc..

The answer to your question depends on how much work is needed.

I hope this helps!

Greg Zaccagni answered:
Real estate agents often identify themselves as either listing or buyers agents. The vast majority of homes are sold with a cooperative broker (buyers agent). Is you question one of the following?

1. Which listing agent has listed the most homes in my area of Blue Island?
2. Which buyers agent has found the greatest number of buyers for homes listed in Blue Island?
