check your lease and with an attorney

but it may still be legal for you to occupy both floors The thing you are probably not allowed to have are beds on the lower floor.

You may be entitled to all your rent back depending what the lease says check with an attorney. ... more

Since no link is visible, the question can't really be answered; therefore for any necessary information, contact any local agen/realty office, they all have access to the same information. ... more

You have the right attitude! I recommend you looking into a VA (Veterans Loan) which can offer zero down payment and save on closing costs.

Good luck,

You should have an agent come in and prepare a CMA for you. Any agent can show you recent solds in the area, that compare to the unit you are looking at and tell you what is the actual price per sq. ft. If you need some assitance, feel free to give me a call.
Good Luck,

Hi Future Commuter, Somerset County has a number of great communities with varying home styles and price points and good access to transportation - both public and highway (we hug 78 and 287 and 22) Generally, we are easier on the pocketbook than points east of us, both in terms of price and property taxes.

Shoot me a quick email to connect - provide a little more info about what you are looking for and I'll send along a sampling of what we have to offer. As a starter, the link below will take to a webpage that highlights towns, schools and transportation:

This has nothing to do with whether the landlord is dead or alive. If you are in a one to four family home you can fight the increase in court but probably won't win. If you are in a larger building, your unit is rent controlled so go to rent leveling in Jersey City. (30 Montgomery St)

Grace Morioka answered:
Hello R, and thanks for your question.

It seems that the homeowners association (if they sent this note to you) may have forwarded this request to you by mistake. Typically, a homeowners association may request tenant information if the homeowner is renting the home. However, I've not heard of a tenant letter being requested of a homeowner.

Can you give me more information, and perhaps I can help you out?

1. Who sent this letter to you?
2. What exactly was being requested? Did the sender include a form?
3. Was there any mention of a reason for requesting the information?

Let me know, and I'll see I can help you make sense of the request.
