Be very careful, the tenant may not move out or stop paying
best o hold back $10,00 with lawyer until new tenant- with all the rights of a tenant
moves out and get the bonus- My leaseback tenant just stopped payment on a check
and there is nothing I can do- that is worth while.
I cab n only hope he moves out- the lease does not clearly aloow me to boot him out
on the schedule stated

Hi First Time,

I would review HOA policy and make determination is coverage is sufficient for your requirement. If not sufficient consider purchasing addition coverage for your needs.

I my view that is lenders request that escrow closes early. For the prospective buyers loan to close he or she has to be the owner of the property. The lender is aware of the escrow loan approval and the escrow closing dates. In addition, lender should have supplied written lock rate commitment. I would check with my Realtor but Lender's Request is only request.

I usually have my clients coordinate with the escrow officer who is completing the escrow and act accordingly to what the escrow officer when he/she would like the down payment to be wired. This can occur at any time to insure that there is no delay or no issue. It is not good to wait until the very last minute of the transaction as that is when errors, omissions and problems occur. Good luck to you! ... more

You will need to open escrow in 3 days once your offer is accepted. You can tell the listing broker you are making your best and final offer because you are interested in another home if you can't get the first home at
the price you offered, but acceptance of both offers and open escrow in 3 days is pressing the envelope

John Sefton answered:
$250,000 is excessive remodeling cost for a 1500 square foot home, especially in a $600K neighborhood. You should be able to build a home that size from scratch for that price. I would not put that kind of money into a 1500 sqft house unless it is in a million dollar neighborhood, and even then I would be real careful.

Answer: Sounds way too risky to me. Is your mom experienced at this?

Hi again Lapcas,
I would recommend that you go to the bank manager where you are currently banking and speak to them about a possible loan. Most loans will require proof of financial ability before considering you for a loan, but if your bank is holding your investments and trusts,they will have a good idea of your net worth. ... more

L.A. Real Estate Group answered:
Hi Rosie
You are correct...Patios are not living spaces and should not be considered in the square footage.That woudl be classified as a bonus room, in a marketing pitch. We work very closely with appraisers and they would not include that in the official sq ft. unless it meets the standard requirements for living spaces (height requirment, etc...)
Hope this helps,
