I have lived in the current resident for 12 years out of no where my landlord typed up a letter saying I have to move within 3 months from the given date. I have no where to go or the money to give to another apartment. I have called every where to get help and I don't have none. The letter is something I would called a dummy letter its not legalized in any type of way. I have do have children almost to finish in the near by school. I have looked every where to find a decent livable home for us. I have never been late with my rent we are a very quite family and clean. Can he just throw us out just like this. We see each other on everyday daily basis after I paid my rent he put a letter in my mail box. he says the city told him I need to move. But they didn't worn me or hand me any type of letter. I am now going thru cancer and I have a lot on me. I have no where to go and I'm so worry to be put in the streets with my kids. I have called even the court and they told me he could do so. Please advise I need help. Elizabeth, NJ Thank you EMAIL ME AT COACHBOUTIKS@GMAIL.COM ... more

I would suggest using the Help Desk link at the bottom of any page on Trulia and sending them a message via that link. I'm not sure how often they cruise through this forum. I'm not sure what is happening on Trulia these days as there seems to be many comments about scams. All listings are supposedly only loaded onto this site through vaild MLS entries. If the scam IS coming from a post here on this forum and you can find it, then flag is as a scam and it should be removed.

Good Luck

City inspector and home inspector is two different types with different purposes. City inspector is checking on code violations and habitability and is connected to City and County. Home inspector is checking on mechanical s, roof, windows, plumbing, hot and cold water, wiring, guttering, outside grading of land away from home, crawl space, attic and has to do with informing you on the condition of the property and what to expect with repairs in the near and far future. Both have their place. Here in Indiana you pay upfront for your home inspection but if your Realtor writes it in thecontracts seller paid closing costs, you can be credited back for it at closing. You need to bring all this up with your Real Estate Agent and let them explain to you. ... more

If you are working with a Realtor they can furnish that information. If not contact your county Tax assessor and they will let you know. If your purchasing a property from a regular seller owned property, bank owned etc and dealing with a Realtor here in Indiana the contracts have an area that can be marked all property taxes past or present will be paid up to the day of closing. Bank owned properties have in their contract usually that all taxes past or present will be paid up to the date of closing also. That means you will be credited on your settlement statement for that amount. Here in Indiana we pay our taxes 1 year in arrears. So if you have pay your spring tax in 2015 your actually paying for spring of 2014. The credit on your settlement statement at closing can be quite a bit of funds. All states are different though ours just happens to be 1 of three states in the country that is always 1 year behind. ... more

There might some confusion. You can have 2 FHA loans due to relocation and or the 25% equity. You cannot use the rental income until it has been shown on your tax returns for the past 2 years. Let's discuss your loan scenario in more detail. Contact me at 800 315 8803 or 973 979 4100 (NJ #). My name is Bart and I have been in the mortgage business since 1987. I am happy to answer your mortgage questions, 7 days a week and review your loan scenario. Until then, I look forward to hearing from you.

oh without a have rights,Ergo excercise them while we are all alive and healthy to do so.
Morning.I know that an attorney will be able to walk you through such,to streamline this flummox issue with the landlord,where your able to have "more time"to live there,prior to leaving,as my bro had same situation.I know a Union County (NJ)judge allow him to remain a add'l 1 to 2 months. i also know the old landlord(Near Union,NJ in Linden area)was chastize by a judge,his lawyer adage.So your going to be ok. He would have gotten 2X the rent(worth two months)IF he did not agree he will rather take the 2 full months,to find a place,so he again won really in the end,because he was not "force out into the street, as the old landlord was attempting to do."He had several weeks month to 2 months to procure a place,AND if not? NJ Judge advise him,"just contact the court through his lawyer,but again he had procure attorney AND lastly the landlord
did have to pay his 1,000 lawyer fee(s)because it was his fault,and his lawyer somehow got a fee-check from the landlord who left the court as your able to see losing in the end.But if your
not able to afford lawyers,do it PRO-SE self file,Many are doing his now a days successfully.
But at least CALL a few for a free consult... The one who"care"will offer free cosult and then
work out a fair pymt.plan for you. Maybe 1/2 down and or be paid in full within thirty days.
LAWYERS EVEN AGREE,'THE NJ LAWS WITH RENTING/EVICTIONS ETC.always work way better more for the tenant,for at least past decade we hear often,so good luck to you ...
Such landlord should've been forthright.I see he has not...

Most towns require that the fire inspector visually inspect the apartments to assure that smoke alarms, carbon monoxide detectors and fire extinguishers are in place and in working order. So regardless of your tenant's stubbornness they are going to have to open the door for the inspection. ... more

i can answer since i am a victims advocate born in early 70s,and daughter to parents who are from E-TOWN i call it from19 30s to 70s's then we move to suburban residential Rahway/Clark Borderline lovely suburban linden residential area.I was going to purchase 1st home in lovely Elmora Part but i am not...Some new homes in E-Town definitely have way lower taxes which is a plus but just not worth it to invest my $ living in elizabeth bad area.(unless i am a landlord)but then again gotta have good tenants)
I know personally from my family background all about Elizabeth,New Jersey.It is a bad city but not all.
Elizabeth is a VERY high crime-ridden city.sad actually because it always imo had so much potential.
I call the best part/a little bit of suburban mini-elizabeth is best part imo grier ave/linden,nj borderline.linden is more suburban naturally way less crime and a lovely residential mostly 90% projects/crime ridden like elizabeth,but elizabeth other BEST section 90% of ELMORA.
I have brother on Rahway Ave/St.Georges Ave/Elmora Part of E-town,by warinanco park/linden nj.
Lovely over there low to no crime that section.

Also,we do have auntie who reside there.gorgeous home nestle on a quiet suburban looking tree lined good luck to you.but again all depend mostly on WHAT PART OF Bad Elizabeth
you are considering buying or renting.Her section in Elmora never in her section murder/rape.crime.

It is a more hood/urban bad but not worse than newark.My fiancee Tarik Family from Newark way worse,but elizabeth is still where alot of my own family live but the better section grier ave section and elmora ave.

Ergo, if u have to "temporarily"move to e town why not.but again key word is... TEMPORARY . . .
Clearly not the suburbs in Elizabeth,NJ but Elmora Avenue entire section just about is a mini-suburb we call it in our family lovely low to no high crime section in THAT section.Good luck to you!
