Lease agreements are between the tenants and the landlord. The city of Glendale does not have rent control. The landlord can ask whatever rent the market will bear. Work with a local Realtor to see if homeownership is right for you, instead of renting. Best of luck! ... more

I figured that the original issue is resolved by now. For others with a similar issue, you might be required to either build a new enclosed parking area or convert some of the living space back to a usable garage. In many cities including Glendale there must be "off-street covered parking." You must be ABLE to use the garage for parking, like still with a garage door at the driveway.

So, is that space with just a cement floor or has other flooring been put in over the cement? For living space, lots of codes besides flooring must be met or else your insurance policy may not cover damage relating to construction that MIGHT not be up to code (not properly permitted). If you "eliminated" a garage, then you may need to have a new one built. The same thing would apply if your garage was damaged by a tree or something. You MUST have one or else that would technically be a code violation.

Obviously, it is legal to not own a car, so again you do not have to actually use the garage as a garage. Even if you have a car, you can park it outside of the garage or carport. You just have to have one... even if it is totally filled with boxes or furniture or anything that CAN be removed to make space for parking a vehicle.

As for the bathroom plumbing, that is an entirely distinct permit issue than the requirement to have a covered parking area off the street. I am sure that by now you have contacted your local city government to get this clarified. I live just south of Glendale Arizona in greater Phoenix.

For anyone who happens to be looking for a link to the "building" department of the city of Glendale, AZ, I have a link to them on this page:

For more info on renovations, more info is here: We can help with anything from building a carport or garage from ground up to converting a parking area in to interior living space (like a bathroom, extra bedroom, etc...).

Again, how you actually use the space is not really the big issue to the city government. A toilet that you never use still has to be properly permitted or else you can encounter complications.

Hopefully you documented your arrangement with your parents. A copy of that document along with several months of bank statements showing the payment going out in a timely manner may suffice.
If you're other credit is good, it may not matter, but don't be surprised if they ask for these extra documents.

Rich Reed answered:
I had the same issue. The data often comes from the tax assessor's official records. Check (or have your Realtor check) the info on the assessor's site. Mine was incorrect, so I filed a "Property Data Change Request" form with them (Los Angeles County, in my case). They sent someone out to verify the information (4 baths instead of 3) and updated their records. It can take awhile for them to process it. When you list your home for sale with a Realtor, he/she will input the data, which may be different from the assessor's, into the MLS and this should be what is displayed on internet sites like Trulia. It is still best to get the info changed at the assessor's office, though.

Here is a link to the Los Angeles County form:

Call the listing agent yourself or hire yourself a buyer's agent to look into this for you.
