When renting a home in a community that is governed by an HOA the landlord should provide a copy of the HOA documents including the rules for the community to the tenant. Those rules are called CC&Rs or Covenants, Conditions, and Restrictions.

Before submitting a Rental Application ask your tenant agent and/or the landlord agent if they can make available a copy of the HOA documents (CC&Rs) for review.

You want to do that before you submit your rental application so you don't spend money on an application processing fee for a home that you would later decide is too restrictive for your requirements after reviewing the CC&Rs..

Hi Rajesh,
As Kevin said which is probably true! I dont feel prices are upwards this year. Inventory has increased a little. But buyers who are buying since INTEREST RATES are so slow, are smart to lock in 30 yrs..or 7/1 in 3"s.

Lastly, I feel, One year is not enough to see tangible increase!

I would definitely recommend talking directly with your current lender.

For sure the easiest solution after that would be a FHA streamline refinance. In order to qualify for this, your loan must be FHA insured, min credit score of 640, and you must be current on your mortgage payments (only 1 - 30 day late payment in the past 12 months). Streamline would allow us to use your original appraised value of your home when you purchased it.

Basically they see it that if you are current on your payments, it can't hurt to lower them by getting you a lower interest rate.

Best of luck!
Don't hesitate to contact me if you have questions.
