I went over to but could not find this rental listing, usually when you are there it will give you either the rental agency or a link to the agency. If you can look it up again and send me a link I can take it from there. Sorry I can't be more help, but I'm not a property manager that does rentals, if focus on residential real estate buying and selling.

Thanks again and good luck,

I suggest you leave it as is and don't spend any money or time unnecessarily. You can then make it a contingency on the sale of the property to either leave it or convert it at the request of the Buyer. This gives you the most flexibillity, and a little negotiating room when you get an offer.

When you get ready to sell I also suggest that you consider the agents who are responding for your listing agent, but pick 3 for more indepth interviews and compatibility.

Best Wishes,

Mark Moore, DiMar Real Estate

Permits and inspections would be required for plumbing and electrical in Lane County. The county will do "as-built" inspections. You would have to purchase the required permits after the fact. Anything the inspector found would need to be corrected for approval. The problem if you don't ultimately get it approved by the county comes when you try to sell the property. You will be required to disclose that remodeling was done without permits, and that can absolutely kill a sale. We have had several sellers that went through that process before they could sell their property. You could be fined and still have to acquire the permits and have the inspections done if the county learns it was done without required permitting. By requesting "as-built" permitting and inspections yourself, you would likely avoid penalties and future issues selling the property. ... more
