This is what is called a "duplex" - a side-by-side two family. Two rental units. Tax legals can be wrong, and that's why it shows as single family....or they are counting each side as one-family units. Sometimes duplexes are divided up legally, and can have each side sell, separately, as if it is an attached one family home. ... more

Tari Torch Sweeney answered:
POS violations are violations found during a Point-of-Sale inspection done by the city when someone moves. It is a requirement that, when a home goes on the market, the seller must pay a fee, and schedule a POS with the city. City comes out and goes through the house to make sure the home is free of any serious issues, i.e., electrical, roof, mechanical, etc. Usually geared toward health and safety issues. This inspection, by the way, is NOT meant to be in place of a private home inspection by a buyer. In most cases, the seller repairs all the violations, city returns to re-inspect and then issues a Letter of Compliance, which the lender must have in order to transfer title on the sold house. Many times, the seller cannot or will not repair the violations, in which case they ask that the "buyer assume all violations." Then, a buyer would want to get a contractor to estimate the cost of repairs so that they could negotiate that figure into the price of the house. Bank-owned houses that have violations, or foreclosed homes, etc., are sold "as is"....banks rarely, if ever, do any of the violations. If buyer assumes the violations, the city will usually require 1.5 times the amount of the cost of the violations to be placed in an escrow account until those violations are completed.

This is how most communities that have POS inspections keep their housing stock free of major problems, especially in the older communities, such as ClevelandHeights, Shaker Heights, University Heights, etc. There are 16 POS communities in Cuyahoga County. So, your question, "Who pays for them" is really a matter of decision, usually the seller's decision. If you do not want to do violations, you can certainly request that the seller do them, but if seller won't, or can't, then you would probably not want to look at homes that have this issue.

Hope this helps.

Evie Braman answered:
Both other agents made good points about the pictures - here's one more about homes that have been temporarily removed from the market. We have rules as to how and when to put property status changes into the Multiple Listing Service. Frequently, the bank will verbally accept an offer but we then have to receive their contractual agreement, have our buyer sign it, send it back and then receive it signed until it's actually changed in status from "active" to "contingent" or to "pending". This can take three weeks. In order to stop the public from thinking that the property is still active, we put it under "temporarily off the market" so as not to frustrate buyers who would otherwise see it as an active listing. Always watch for these to come back on the market as some of the deals fall apart and they do reappear as active listings.

Tari Torch Sweeney answered:
What is the seller asking you to pay for the house? When you began to rent, was it a rent with option to purchase? How long have you been renting? Is any of the rental dollar being applied to the down payment? When you purchase, the lender does an appraisal, as you know. The area comps do not support $60,000 and if the appraisal comes in less than what you are paying, the seller can walk away, or come down in price to meet the appraisal price for you to pay. Or, you can come up with the difference in price...i.e., if seller wants $60,000, house appraises for $50,000, you can pay the other $10,000 to make it up. But, you need to discuss with lender. If you want to email me, I will privately give you the name of a loan officer to call. tarits@adelphia.net ... more

Hi Jennifer,
Sorry, the property that you inquired about is no longer available.
If I could, let me offer you a FREE search service. I can set up a search for you that would include the areas that you want to look in with ALL of the listings that are in the Multiple Listings that meet your criteria in the designated area.
Better yet, as new properties become available or current listings have PRICE CHANGES, you will be made aware of that!
Unlike many web sites that use old, out-of date information,this search will be from current data that is fresh, updated daily.
You can manage the data, rejecting those that you have no interest in and saving those that you may wish to examine more closely.
This allows you to save time and avoid confusing clutter.
If you think that this could help you, please call me at 440-487-2193 or drop me an e-mail at John@CallRealtorJohn.com .
