Now it shows Us bank trust as the new owner. So even though it was recorded 7/10 it took some time to show.

Go to your local police department. There may also be a special economic crimes division for the State of CA. If you have reason to believe the individual or company was out of state, you can go to the FBI. ... more

Landlord Tenant Law is what is applicable. It's amazing what you can find with a search. Here is an excerpt from the link attached below;

A landlord cannot routinely charge each tenant for cleaning carpets, drapes, walls, or windows in order to prepare the rental unit for the next tenancy.

This is under paragraph marked with a large 1.
The general idea is you give it back in the way you received it, except for normal wear and tear. It's always a good idea to photograph or video any damages you find in your initial walk through your unit. This evidence clarifies who did what and when. Best of luck.

It's about 3 miles as the crow flies. Driving time from that address is about 8-10 minutes because of the winding road. Saddle Rd. is in the landing flight pattern for planes (on *final approach*) going in and out of Monterey - it's wonderful seeing them fly so close especially when there is an air show in Salinas and they come to refuel in Monterey! You will get noise from Laguna Seca on race days...but even that is exciting! I lived off Saddle Rd for years and loved it! ... more

I've seen this house. The truth is this house is too close to the airport has no yard and is in a bad school district. This house has been on the market twice in two years, do the math.

A lease is a contract. The pet provision will not be treated any differently than other provisions in the contract. If you sign a no pet lease and get a pet, you would be in breach of the contract. Review the lease to see what remedies the landlord can seek.
Good luck,

If you are looking for a website that offers up to date foreclosure listings, I would like to recommend This is a site that requires membership but you can peruse through the listings in your market area first before signing up.

Our database contains over two million foreclosure homes, including bank foreclosures, government foreclosures like VA homes and HUD homes, distressed properties and commercial properties that are for sale all across the nation. All of the listings have had any outstanding liens eliminated and the title is free and clear. We also update our extensive collection of listings every day.

I did a quick check for 3 BR homes in your area and I found 53 active listings. Here is the link to check it out:

Monterey Peninsula Home Team answered:
I rarely see trades work out as both owners seem to think their home/condo is worth more than the one they are trading for and ultimately they have a hard time agreeing to a price. If you are interested in selling your condo in South Lake, I know several very good Realtors in Tahoe for you to interview about selling your property and I would be happy to show you what you can get down here on the Monterey Peninsula. The selling season is just about to start in Tahoe (Fall) from what I understand about that market, and the best time to get a good deal on the Peninsula is in the Winter months as there are less second home buyers looking and things are less competitive. ... more

Hi Tarek, It will depend on your needs; however, generally speaking... resale is easier with a home than a condominium. There are also some in-between options (PUD) where you purchase a home and pay HOA fees that take care of the gardening and upkeep. If you would like to contact me or meet in person to discuss - 831-402-3800. I work with many investors from Silicon Valley and the greater bay area. In fact, I love working with investors. This market is "low supply" at the moment and cash investors are able to get into the market much easier than individuals with loan contingencies. For example - My last 2 home sales had 5 and 6 offers respectively within 48 hours. In both cases, the owners selected the cash buyer (investors) since it was a simpler and faster close of escrow (coe). I look forward to learning more about your investment goals. You can invest in Greenfield and Soledad starting about $200K and then rent properties. In Seaside you can get in at about 300-400K and in Pacific Grove - most investments are at $500K on up. Let me know what type of investment interests you the most. ;) ... more

Annette Boggs, REALTOR answered:
I would recommend that you ask the agent for referrals and check with them before working/choosing your agent. They will tell you how hard the agent worked for them, educated them and helped them through the process.
It's good to get an agent who has an extensive background of Real Estate in general and not just a license.

Use Google search and in the search bar type your address with city and state. You can then see the front of the unit.

Also Google Streets is a great one.
