If the fence is on the neighbors property as well as yours, it might be a bit different than things would normally be. I think it's important to get the help you need with things like this. You should talk to the professionals that can help you get the information you need. I know that I have seen a lot of situations like this in the past. I hope that people are able to figure out the information that they need.

Sheryl Arndt answered:
Hello Terri, if you figure out what cities/zip codes you are considering, minimum number of bedrooms and the maximum payment you are looking to achieve and you can be emailed listings to fit your search criteria. The rentals in Lancaster start from $825 for 2bd 1ba apartment, $1,085 for 3bd 1ba single family home and the purchase start from 70k for 3bd 2ba single family homes which is as low as $350 down payment with a minimum 580 fico score.

You should study RENT vs BUY options as you may qualify to buy with minimum out of pocket expenses and pay less than rent in many cities. You may qualify FHA from fico score between 500-579 with 10% down or minimum 580 fico score may qualify FHA 3.5% down or as low as .5% half percent down payment program. You may consider 3% down conventional with a minimum 620 fico score.

It only takes a few dozen questions to qualify, go over your options and email you listings too. Here are some links to study as well as web reference links to many loan program pages offered...

Back in 1989 before I was in real estate I sold a mobile home myself to save the cost of a realtor. It was the most expensive thing I ever have done. I learned a lot that helped me be a much better realtor, but it was an expensive school. ... more

Andrea Tillis answered:
Hi, Hi, My name is Andrea and I am an Attorney with over 25 years experience in commercial and residential real estate transactions.

If you cannot locate your landlord, open an escrow account at your local bank and deposit your rent into that account on the due date each month, without fail. Send a letter to the landlord at his last known address by Certified Mail and by regular mail, informing the landlord that since you were unable to locate him (or her), you are depositing your monthly rent check into the escrow account.

By taking these steps to protect yourself, the landlord cannot charge you any late fee, nor can he claim that you are in breach of the lease for non-payment of rent

Hey Linda, a verbal offer does not a contract make. You might want to look at a broker who has a track record of making his clients happy with outstanding personal service.

Brian Nguyen answered:
That credit score is right under the border. The lowest credit scores lenders like myself are able to do, is a score of 580. I suggest your work on your score a bit to push it above 580. It's also important to understand that you're ability to obtain a loan relies on other factors as well. These factors include income, expenses, assets, liabilities, debt, employment, down payment, as well as credit scores. Either way, I suggest you speak with a lender like myself who would be glad to speak with you to help you get the loan that you need. If you have any further questions or if you would like a loan, feel free to contact me. Good Luck! Brian Nguyen Sr. Mortgage Banker NMLS # 659743 Phone: 949.667.2887 brian.nguyen@nafinc.com ... more

You can easily get information on crime using the crime blotter. Lancaster and Palmdale fall under the L.A County Sheriff Department. I would also consider access to healthcare and convenience to shopping and those activities that you plan on enjoying in those golden years. ... more
