Hello Dmitriy,
Speak with a Real Estate Attorney that specializes in tenant-landlord cases. I can recommend you a great one that you can consult with and get a better understanding of what is happening , what rights you have and what outcome to expect.
From what I know, If you are a condo owner and own a parking space where you park your car you are at liberty to allow anyone park in your spot unless the condo rules state otherwise. If you are renting this parking space from someone, that might be a different story.

You are certainly eligible to refinance right now; all property types would be fine. Since it's the beginning of the month it's absolutely possible to close before your next payment is due; wouldn't that be nice?

I recommend that speak so we can weigh-out all of your options and determine which loan offers the greatest financial benefit for your lifestyle. Additionally, we will go over how the refinance process works from start to finish, expectations, and most importantly the amount of money you can expect to save on a monthly and yearly basis.

Please contact me at your earliest convenience so we can begin exploring your options, I may be reached directly at (201) 957-6768, or via email at I look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards,

There are many ways to measure square feet; gross, net, net net.
Condo,s most often include the propotianate share of the common space as well as the gross space of the actual apartment.
A private house is generaly gross square feet; outside wall to outside wall.
Co-Ops are measured by numbers of shares, rarely square feet.
Depending on what kind of property you have and the reason for needing to know the amount of square feet; you will get many answers to your question. But the best way is to measure it yourself.

Streamlined refinances is no different than any other refinance other than the fact that it may waive the need for appraisals, or some income documents, or credit reports, etc. If a streamline refinance is available, it usually is the best option because you can usually get the refinance done quicker and with slightly less expenses.

Consider meeting face-to-face with a Loan Officer who can evaluate your situation and advice you of your options. I'm always available if you're looking for a reliable Loan Officer. Good luck!

Another idea is to always completely shut off all electronics, like computer for instance, rather than keeping them in standby mode! Slowly but surely, they sap away at electricity and it all adds up in the long run. ... more

Dear Muffinman,

There are many ways to go about it, but it is a matter of opinion as to if they are easy or not. It also depends on how certain you want to be. Are you going to take it to the "Nth" degree? Why do you ask? If we knew the reason you wanted to know we may be able to better assist. God luck! :)
