If it not a commercial property, hell no, no shipping containers, or you would have to remove it and pay out some fines just to have it on your property, so if you are going to get it, do not tell and hope nobody will say a word. ... more

CA has automatic and declared homestead exemptions to protect a person or family’s residence from certain types of creditors. The homeowner does not have to record any documents to receive “automatic” protection. There are some benefits to recording a "declared" homestead exemption. The topic is beyond the scope of internet advice, but you could ask your Realtor to provide you with an article from CAR about California homestead exemptions.
Hope this helps!

Any change in title could affect a future sale with respect to providing seller's title insurance to a future buyer. Sometimes title insurance companies will require an affidavit from the previous parties on title even if they have already signed a quitclaim. I would recommend that you talk to your current title insurance provider. ... more

Unfortunately an attorney is your best bet. Perhaps you can arrange some kind of fees and payment options with your attorney.

Unfortunately you made a huge mistake. You will need to sweeten the deal now. Try bribery - offer this person some green cash & convince him/her to sign the quit claim deed. If that does'nt work, you will need to pay a lawyer. ... more

Hello Lynne, you would have to go back to the site that you listed it on. Trulia does not allow FSBO but their Zillow site does. Some sites like Trulia get the information flow from other sites and can not be changed here.

Expect an average of 12 weeks to find your home. (Per the 2015 California Association of Realtors Home Buyer Survey.) That being said it really can vary due to the lack of home inventory causing high competition, your personal flexibility, your financing, etc. I suggest working with an agent who has many good leads on pocket listings (homes not yet on the market.) This way you will be competing with fewer homebuyers. ... more

The HOA can not put themselves on the title to your home or evict you. If you owe the HOA many months of dues then they may have filed a lien against the property. You can ask a real estate agent to pull a "Title Report" from a Title Company which will show what is really going on. Your real estate agent should be able to explain he report to you. Hope this helps. ... more

Anna M Brocco answered:
Rent to own is really not a good idea, it can be risky and one could stand to lose a bit of money, it favors the owner; therefore do inform yourself well, and consider consulting with an attorney who specializes in real estate beforehand. If you haven't done so yet, visit with any licensed loan officer, see if you can buy outright, or simply continue renting until a purchase can be made. ... more
