This is pretty difficult to find these days, and frankly, there is no way to find those owners. Not sure what the market is like in your area, but in many parts of the country, the market has recovered quite nicely, and we are in a pretty good seller's market. That means more buyers than sellers. Most sellers would rather SELL to a viable buyer, instead of renting to someone who may or may not actually qualify for a regular mortgage when the term of the contract is up.

I would talk to a couple of lenders to see what you can do to get your score up. It could be as simple as paying down, or paying off a couple of accounts.

I'd continue renting and working on your credit. Maybe you can stay where you are, and rent on a month to month basis? Or sign a 6 month lease? Good luck!

One way to find foreclosure listings, is call a professional Realtor and they can send you Harris county foreclosure listings. However, in today's market, foreclosure listings are not always the least expensive listings. I suggest you give your Realtor your criteria on what you are looking for and the maximum price you are willing to spend and then from there you will get a list of properties that match your wants.

Your credit score is fine. As long as you meet the other criteria, income, debt to income ratio, etc., you should be fine. I would contact a local mortgage banker if I were you to be sure. ... more

Title company or attorneys will be able to help you. If your current title company does not want to help you, find a new one.

As the others who have posted have mentioned it is extremely important to have any home that is being considered for purchase inspected by a professional home inspector. The presence of lead paint in the home and the issue of the asbestos siding are probably not huge issues as long as the paint and the siding are in good condition. The hazard with both these materials is when the materials are disturbed. Sanding, drilling, scraping or any mechanical means to remove or modify the surface will release the lead or the asbestos fibers and they are then ingested or inhaled. As long as the material is in good condition and remains unmolested it should not be an issue. I always inform my clients of the presence or the likelihood of the presence of these materials when I find indications of these during my home inspections.
Any health issues that your family is experiencing is probably not due to the lead paint or the asbestos/cement shingles. The mold issue is quite another story. There has to be a moisture issue of some form to allow for the widespread mold growth that you have described. Leaks in plumbing supply lines, drain lines, roof and chimney leaks, poor grading of the lot and a hundred other factors could be contributing to water intrusion which will lead to mold issues.
The bottom line is that since you did not have a home inspection performed you are now faced with an uphill battle to prove that the sellers knew of any of these issues.
