If the door lock was a dead bolt lock on the main entry door, the landlord would usually be responsible.

Ask the person inquiring about where they got their information. Try googling your address and see if it shows a recent listing. Contact a local Realtor and have them check for you.

Hello Manmohan, you may qualify ONE DAY after a short sale, foreclosure or deed in lieu with 20% down and minimum 620 fico score. You may qualify FHA ONE YEAR after a short sale, foreclosure or deed in lieu with extenuating circumstances and minimum 500 fico score.

Traditional FHA financing requires 3 years after a short sale, foreclosure or deed in lieu and Conventional financing requires 7 years after a short sale, foreclosure or deed in lieu.

You may qualify to buy FHA with fico scores between 500-579 with 10% down or minimum 580 fico score may qualify FHA 3.5% down or as low as .5% half percent down payment program. You may consider 3% down conventional from a minimum 620 fico score. Your fico scores can be raised within 3-4 days in most cases to qualify for programs, rates and terms as necessary.

You will need to be pre-approved to be able to meet an agent to view and submit offers on any homes of your choice. Your qualifications will be determined by your credit profile, debt to income ratios, fico scores, home price, loan program and how much you want to invest into the down payment and closing costs.

If you figure out what cities/zip codes you are considering, minimum number of bedrooms and the maximum payment/price you are looking to achieve you can be emailed listings to fit your search criteria. Your email address is needed to set you up for the automatic daily updates.

The purchase in Arcadia start from 389k for 2bd 2ba condo, 428k for 3bd 2ba condo and the single family homes start from 469k for 2bd 1ba home. If it is a REO foreclosed home that needs repairs you may choose the 203k purchase loan to renovate from a minimum 580 fico score.

It only takes a few dozen questions to qualify, go over your options and email you listings to study and compare. Here are some links to study as well as web reference links to many loan program pages offered...

There is no way to answer this question for you without knowing what type of paperwork exists on the house. Whose name is it in? Are you on the mortgage? What type of legal document exists between you and your mother regarding the house? ... more

You certainly can do it on your own. However, if the transaction does not proceed smoothly the value that a realtor brings to the table can be priceless. Also, in regards to negotiating the transaction, a professional realtor can be invaluable. ... more

Tristam Bielecki answered:
There is no rent control in Arcadia so there is no legal protection here.

Take a look at other rentals in the area and if you think the increase will bring the rent to above-market value you can always negotiate the increase down; losing a tenant is costly to a landlord so you may have some success. ... more

You can check your county records to see how it was recorded. Many will allow you to do this online, otherwise you'll have to make a trip to the recorders office.

Your house is at great school district. Great location pushes up the price of listing. Give it a try! You'll find it's not difficult to sell your house at your price. By the way, if you or your spouse are age 55 or older, you may buy a new and downsized house with lesser price than your existing primary residence and transfer the trended base to your new home; meanwhile, cash out your fund for retirement arrangement. If you need a precise consulting service please feel free to contact me. ... more

Hi-
In most cases, you do not need to provide your actual social security card, just the number. Here is a list of what you will need to rent a place:
-completed rental application
-minimum 2 months of pay stubs to prove income
-current credit report with FICO scores
-bank statement showing enough savings to cover move-in costs
-landlord references (optional but great to have)
-Copy of ID

Good luck!
