I'm an assistant for a real estate agent. The HOA package is all the information about the property's HOA and the demand is what dues the buyer would owe upon settlement (this is my understanding!). These are required -that the seller buy & provide them to the buyer - do after the contract is ratified and after the appraisal goes through! ... more

I caught my cheating boyfriend red handed with a lady he was having an affair with and this was made possible by a ethical hacker i met through a comment posted by ray marcum about his good services. I started getting suspicious of my boyfriend since he became too possessive of his phone which wasn't the way he does before. I knew something was wrong somewhere which was why i did my search for a ethical hacker online and contacted the hacker for help, he got the job done perfectly without my boyfriend knowing about it. I'm heartbroken because i gave him my all not knowing he's just a cheat and liar, men are not to be trusted. I am trying to save more people out there from being cheated on by their man or woman by sharing this post with everyone. Don't hesitate to contact him for help at his email address AT gmail DOT com. He's one of the best. ... more

Your idea works nicely in theory but not in real life. The issue is let's say you found a rental that you can afford and is available. If you were to submit all your personal and financial information to a realtor or landlord and have him/her email you an application and you sign it, then the rental is yours. This includes you paying a fee for a credit and background check.

What's wrong with the above picture? You don't have a guarantee that the realtor or landlord will steal your personal or financial information for ID theft. Remember, you're out of town and this is how cons happen. If you're not there in person, you have no proof whether your information was stolen or not. It's your word against theirs.
Another issue - photos on real estate listings are typically stretched or distorted and never show or reveal anything that does not look good. When you see a rental in person, you will see everything - the good and the bad. When viewing listings online, all you see is the good pictures. You have no idea what is not being shown or hidden.
Finally, have you visited the neighborhood in person and visited the building from outside? Realtors and landlords are prohibited from giving opinions on categories protected by Fair Housing laws. Therefore, they cannot tell you what the neighborhood is like in terms of people living there, school quality and other issues that may or may not be important to you. You need to research the neighborhood you will live in. Suppose you don't like it? You signed a lease which means you're stuck living there whether you like it or not.
How does the building look from the outside? If it's not photogenic, it will never show up in real estate listings.

Back to your question. Hopefully I gave you a realistic picture why you should not sign a lease for a rental before you physically move to Las Vegas.

Hank Lauzon answered:

I would suggest starting with the Title Company that held escrow and handled the transaction. It was part of their responsibility to obtain a demand from the HOA stating what was due in Fees to bring the property up to date. It could be a simple communication issue...

I hope this helps... Good Luck...!!
