Beatrice let me know if you have switched. I find the Blackberry very slow and hard to sync with TP8i most of the time.

normal wear and tear is expected. Princeton isnt too tough as opposed to some neighboring communities where landlord is required to repaint often. If however you as a landlord allowed your tenant to paint you could have required them to return to original by professional painters but again this should have been laid out in your lease. If tenants broke windows or allowed them to be left open and damage occured you may have a right to charge them against the security deposit. As a landlord you should have taken pictures of all rooms, recorded serial numbers of appliances and kept records of when you last filled oil tank etc. Tenants are to maintain which would include keeping clean not replace. ... more

KK, There is really no formula for gaging how much to offer a seller. The best suggestion that I can give you is to look at many properties in your price range, you will learn which ones are priced properly and which are not.

Asbestos is a four letter word in the world today. If you have the asbestos legally removed, it will be bagged and tagged with your name on it, and put in a environmental dump. If at anytime that dump is closed, condemned, etc... You still own it and you will be contacted by the government to find a new home for it. Bottom line, you own it for life. As the homeowner, you are liable for the asbestos and all effects if causes on those who come into contact with it, such as neighbors who breath it while it is being removed, thus I encourage you not to remove it with a contractor who says 'it's no big deal'. Removing asbestos is a major liability and I strongly recommend you speak to a licensed and qualified expert in your area about local and federal laws and then weigh the pros and cons of removing it. Search for referrals and avoid inflated estimates by speaking to more than one company. It is a costly process because of the fact that several environmental agencies have to be involved. I've included the EPA link to get you started. After all the facts are considered, you might decide there is a better alternative rather than removing it, or you might proceed with the abatement either way you will be more informed. ... more
