Just look over these on in the source. Prices are low and affordable, so I'm not sure they will accept your voucher, but if it's affordable, you can take it without no problems.

Hello Bria.ball13, yes you should be able to secure a rental with additional deposit. You may also qualify to buy depending on the evictions and how they appear on your reports. Are they on the reports as judgements? If so you may qualify to buy with 3 payments made in a payment arrangement.

If you figure out what cities/zip codes you are considering, minimum number of bedrooms and the maximum payment/price you are looking to achieve any agent can email listings to fit your search criteria. Your email address is needed to set you up for the automatic daily updates.

How much are you paying in rent and for how many bedrooms and if condo, townhouse or single family home and the maximum payment you are looking to achieve? There are many cities within Los Angeles and zip codes so if you could narrow it down. You should study RENT vs BUY listings to make a decision although many rentals are ready to move in and purchase take 30-45 days once you find a home and get into escrow.

The rentals in LA start from $800-$900 for studio or 1bd 1ba apts. The purchase start from 175k for 3bd 1ba single family home in Los Angeles.

You may qualify to buy with minimal out of pocket expenses and pay about what you would pay in rent with down payment and closing cost assistance programs.

Rohan Jain answered:
I couldn't add more details to the question but here is the problem.

As soon as I told the tenant that I am not going to be renewing his lease. [End of February]. He became a nightmare, having drunk people in the house all times of the night. Leaving guests in the house without him present. [Against the lease]. Parking in neighbor's areas, driving fast in the neighborhood, leaving trash everywhere. Giving his door code [Digital locks] to friends. [Against the lease].

Now he is refusing to pay the rent for April and also refusing to pay utilities from past months that he owes me.

What is my legal capacity to evict him? Because I am genuinely worried that he won't leave at the end of his lease.

Does this put me at a risk of a lawsuit because I foolhardily rented out the basement which doesn't have an egress?

Hi Zareh,

You should consult a tax professional. He/she will probably recommend filing a Schedule E which is used to report income and expenses on rental properties. The mortgage interest, property taxes, insurance, HOA dues, repairs, etc. are expenses. If the expenses exceed the rental income received, that would be considered a loss which may help reduce your tax liability.
