Ig I understand this.....this addition was put on without obtaining proper permits?? That was taking quite a chance if there had ever been a fire or some catastrophe - your insurance policy might have refused to pay for any repairs since, by your own words, the apartment was illegal..

I'd think you need to "legalize" the apartment first, before you can attempt a refinance.
I am surprised it wasn't an issue when you bought the house from your mom, unless you paid cash.

You'd have to first find out if the apartment is legal - if the neighborhood is zoned to allow an apartment in the first place.

Start by calling the town zoning department and asking.
Then you will most likely need to have the building department in to inspect the work that was done to make sure it meets code requirements.. If it (the addition) was never inspected, you will also need to then have the town assessor in to recalculate the taxes, as the addition, legal or otherwise, adds value (if it's allowed).

Time to fess up and get this taken care of.

You should also speak to a lender, and see what their take is on this.

Good luck.

Hi Pearly
I would be happy to have one of my agents assist you . Beware of craiglist ads although many rentals ads are legitiment many are there because apts lack the proper safety requirements to qualify for COs. Rentals listed thru MLS are required to be legal and therefore meeting all safety code requirments. Good Luck

How much per month are you looking to spend?
Also most landlords will require a decent credit score/proof of income, and references.

If you are comfortable providing that, and depending on your price range you will be able to find something. Check MLS like others have stated as well ... more

Hi Craig, that rental still shows as available. If you narrow down your criteria such as areas and price further I would be happy to e-mail you a list of what's available on the MLS. Beware when dealing with rentals, if anyone asks for key money or deposits before seeing the house be very suspicious as there are many scams around.
