Time to move on is now. Rentals are in high demand, so I'm guessing that agent has been inundated with inquiries, or it has been rented. It's too bad they don't have the courtesy to at least give you a call back. I suggest you contact local property management companies. ... more

Your best bet is to rent a home and set aside $200 per month for a down payment. When you are ready, you can buy. If you rent to own the home, they will require you to pay the rent plus an additional set amount ($200 or what you agree on).

1. Make sure you go through a title company or other third party so the money is going in the correct place. You don't want to give all of your money to the owner to find out that they did not pay their mortgage payment and they keep the $200. If this happens, you lose the money and the bank gets the home.

Take pictures of everything in the home, windows, doors, carpet and flooring for each room, all walls, broken items, blinds, everything before you move in. Take pictures of the same and more before you move out. This way if the owner says you trashed the place or you broke something, you have prove that you did not. ... more

To fight for your home, or not, is a decision only you can make--not knowing your bankruptcy details, what does your attorney suggest you do at this point.

You need to know your rights under renting. If you go to Cleveland's web-site there is a link about renting and your rights. Your landlord needs to give you a 24 hour notice if he/she is entering your house. If there is not a notice then he/she is violating the law.
You need to contact Cleveland Heights and ask them what you can do. The web link I mentioned can only take complaints from Cleveland proper residents.
Hope this helps and gets your landlord on the right track
