CC answered:
Odd generally the selling bank does not get involved with the financing so I question your comprehension of the facts.

A seller can always refuse to fix anything your lender is making repairs a condition of the loan they cannot force a seller to fix anything. Nor will they if they are the bank it is not the business they are in. They might accept less money though ... more

Hi Gene, first off allow me to explain to you what "tradeline bankruptcy" that appears on your credit report means. Credit report agencies (Experian, Transunion, and Equifax) report information on each of your accounts separately for each creditor that holds or has held that account. Each of these separate reports of the account is referred to as a "tradeline."
Secondly, depending on the bankruptcy type you will continue to have this in your credit history, tipically a Chapter 13 bankruptcy should drop off your report after 7 years, where as to a Chapter 7 typically shows for up to 10 years from the date your case was filed.
You might be able to apply for a home loan, depending on the waiting period requested by the lender and the type of loan you filed the bankruptcy for will be your standard waiting period.
FHA loans- 2 years
VA loans- 2 years
Conventional loans- 4 years
USDA loans- 3 years
Hope it helps, good luck to you.
My office is located in Long Beach, and you are welcome to comtact me with any further questions you may have.

Trulia is an advertising site. If you have a complaint, contact the Department of Financial Services in New York. Lots of complaints are due to misunderstandings and miscommunications. Try to discuss it with the loan officers boss before you make claims that might damage them.

Don't Let Them Make a Monkey Out of You! Follow the links below.

Karen Peyton answered:
Contact several insurance providers, tell them the square footage and construction material of your home along with any special features of value, and they should be able to give you an estimate.
Tell them you want replacement cost coverage.
If you feel their estimate and coverage are too low, you can always increase them.
You can certainly buy "more" insurance.

* Pay attention also to liability and medical coverage. I think your chances of being sued are greater than your home being completely destroyed. Hope not, either way.

Good luck.

It would be a good idea to know the co-buyer in person, rather than someone you don't know ideally.

Alex Montelongo Real Estate Group answered:
As my colleague mentioned below, contacting Trulia's customer service line seems to be the best idea. Keep in mind there are so many real estate websites that probably have pictures of the property online.
Yahoo, Google,,,, and literally dozens more. Contacting them one by one will be some task.

All the best,
