We asked our LL to get our deposit returned early and she stated she was having cash flow problems. so she couldn't return it to us early. Then she suggested we pay 1300 per month for the next two months (that is half of our $2600 rent) to help us out.We are buying a home and have lots of out of pocket expenses.

We paid 1300 for September and was just ready to pay October rent of 1300 and messaged her to ask if she wanted cash or bank transfer and she messaged me back and told me that we had to pay the entire amount for October rent. She went off and said we were trying to cheat her out of money and then she refused the bank transfer that I did through online bill pay. She said she was only helping us out for September, but she was owed the entire amount for October.

We told her that once she accepted the reduced amount for September, that email agreement superseded the original contract. She has acknowledged in writing (in her e mail) that she received 1300 from us for September.

So now, I have no idea what to do. I am planning on contacting the Fair Housing and Mediation board as soon as they open!

I have lived in Long Beach right between Ocean Blvd and First St and between Los Alamitos and Cerritos for 2 1/2 years and need to let all of you know that rent there for a 1 bedroom is anywhere from 1200 to 1500 with no amenities like dishwasher or air conditioning(yes it does get hot in the summer!), and most don't have patio or balcony. There is hardly any one bedrooms that come with parking(mostly 2 bd apts). Parking is very bad! I usually end up parking about 3-4 blocks from my place by the time I get home around 430 to 530 pm. Two bedrooms apts are about 1900 and up with some having 1 parking place. Alot of these apartments in this area are run by slumlords that don't fix stuff up (bare mininum), don't spray for bugs(including spiders-real problem). Old and outdated apts. They will raise your rent every year. There is a really bad homeless problem, sleeping on your porch/stairs, breaking into laundry rooms and stealing laundry or going the bathroom in it, digging through trash cans at all hours making big messes and alot of noise, throwing trash and clothes all over the sidewalks. Doing drugs in the alley ways next to the apartments and even on the stairs/porches to apartments. Alot of crime in this area too. Have had multiple neighbors report break-ins(one while they were home at night!). Police chases by car and foot through the neighborhood. Twice someone has been shot within a two block radius. You are better off looking inland like Signal Hill or down in the Belmont Shores/ Belmont Heights area vs Long Beach. Ever since they redid the Pike and cleaned up downtown for the tourists it has pushed the homeless and crime element into our residential area. Areas are bad and too high prices for what you get. ... more

Hello Jett, If you figure out what cities/zip codes you are considering, minimum number of bedrooms and the maximum payment you are looking to achieve you can be emailed listings to study and compare. Your fico scores can be raised within 3-4 days in most cases to qualify for programs, rates and terms as necessary.

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. Your fico scores can be raised within 3-4 days in most cases to qualify for programs, rates and terms as necessary.

Beware of the many rental scams out there these days on all sites. The scams are on all of the rental listing sites except one that us agents/broker use such as mls, multiple listing service.

You should not give anyone any funds or personal information without confirming with a licensed agent/broker or management company to find out whom you should be dealing with and the status of any address of interest.

You may qualify FHA from fico scores 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 from a minimum 640 fico score up to 417k. You may consider 3% down conventional from a minimum 620 fico score or even 5% down conventional with NO Mortgage insurance (Lender paid MI) up to 417k.

You will need to be pre-approved if you decide to buy and to be able to meet an agent to view and submit offers on any homes of your choice. Your qualifications will be determined by your credit profile, debt to income ratios, fico scores, loan program and how much you want to invest into the down payment and closing costs.

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

Ernie Behrle answered:
Do an online search for residential property management companies in the area you are looking for and start making calls. Also reach out to a local real estate agency and ask if they have a rental specialist. That person can check the local multiple listing services for rentals as well. Be careful of sites like this and craigslist as their are as many scams going on a s ligit rentals.

Good Luck!!

Karen McEniry answered:
You may want to check with some property management companies in Long Beach, such as Pabst Kinney, Action Management, or Centennial Property Management. You can also look into apartment communities, as they will often allow month to month rentals. Most private rentals require longer terms. Another place that rents for about that amount and allows pets is the Seaport Marina Hotel at 2nd and PCH. It is not luxurious, but it is in a great location and is affordable. Best of luck!
