They can do anything spelled out in the agreement you signed when you agreed to participate in the HOA. It is not at all uncommon for an HOA to prohibit rentals because a renter has less incentive to take care of a property than an actual owner and thus pose a larger threat to the property value. It is essential before you buy into a community with a mandatory HOA that you make sure you know what you're agreeing to. ... more

Sure thing! Both people own the house and the rental agreement has nothing to do with the home ownership. It sounds like your partner is not in agreement with you. Maybe you should obtain legal advice from a real estate attorney. ... more

Under the main photo section, there is a banner of:
Home Details | Neighborhood Info | Affordability | Price History & Trends | More
Click on "More" and select "Flag." State you're the homeowner and make the corrections.

If you're house is currently on the market with an agent, he or she should be double checking Trulia's data. If you're house isn't on the market and you just want to update the info, this might be providing more information than what's in your best interest when considering tax assessments (read the article below ).

most of the homes in the immediate area were built in the 1960's. the oldest homes in St. Paul were built near downtown in the 1850's and the city grew out from there. The area around 181 White Bear avenue was likely farm land until the 40's or 50's. There isn't anyway to know how the land was used before the 1840's. ... more

To answer this question you would need to have a title search performed. You can either do it yourself by going to the St. Paul Courthouse on Kellogg, or hire a Title company to do it for you.

Of course you can purchase a home, but I think your question is more about financing the home.

If you're not up for paying cash, we need to be sure your name isn't on the mortgage that is subject to the short sale, and we need to see that the short sale isn't on your credit reoprt. If thats the case, you can apply for a mortgage loan on your own, and we can qulify you with just your credit and income.

Just click on the web link, select apply on-line, and I'll let you know exactly what we can do for you. Or stop by my office next time you're in MN.
