I have requested my review to be published on your website, however for reasons unbeknownst to me, it was deleted. According to other consumer complains it appears to be the practice of your company to randomly erase reviews by people who spend their entegy writing positive reviews for professionals that helped them with their real estate purchase. As a customer I feel this treatment of the consumers of your website is ridiculous. So no, I was not satisfied by the outcome of your support and since my positive review of legitimate services has not been published I feel confident that my negative review of your company will be published soon to reflect on business review sites. Thank you, but not really. ... more

Use and occupancy agreements are a great type of contract to have when some form of gap is needed in residency. They are commonly used when there is a delay in closing and the buyer has nowhere to go for example. There are many uses however for a use and occupancy.

Dear Brookline residence,

It all depends if are allowed by town's zoning regulations to add the basement to your living area or not.
If permitted and you can added to your public record and eventually to your deed, then you have a golden egg here to hatch. In the other hand if by zoning law you are not allowed to do it, then you may have an finished space which may appeal to some buyers, as bonus, but not willing to pay a much higher price for it, and you would not be able to listed on your marketing material as extra square feet of space.
I don't know the size of your basement and the level of finish you are planing to do, but do not over spend.

I suggest you consult an attorney regarding the zoning regulations, you may be able to get variance.
Please let me know if i can help.

My regards,
Giti Saeidian
