no. Unless someone asks. Obviously if it was a crime scene they can google it otherwise people on hospice die at home all of the time.

Amelia Robinette answered:
depends on your lender and financing criteria. you should talk to your loan officer to find out your options.

is this a loan or a gift? this is a critical distinction, a loan requires some repayment, so in the lenders eyes you've taken on a new debt that will need to be calculated into your debt to income ratio. a gift is something else, lenders have rules about gift documentation.

let your 'gifter' know ahead of time that the lender is going to want to see their bank statements to source the funds. a lot of people are surprised by this requirement and feel that it's intrusive - keep in mind you are asking a bank to loan you a LOT of money, they need to assess the risk and knowing the source of funds is not only important to them, but they are required to ask a for a lot of paperwork because of federal and state banking regulations.

One of the best things you can do is to take a trip down to the police station to get some data.

Leslie, that is a little tough. Most rentals are for longer terms. Can she accomplish stairs and such. Not too many first floor rentals

A fair and reasonable insurance premium for the replacement cost of real estate costing $170,000 would be right around $600/yr.

Valerie McGillivray answered:
What you want to do is to connect with a good agent in the area and have them search the mls for homes that you feel you would be able to afford ( get an idea on financing first) and then your agent can contact the list agents and sellers and ask if they would consider a rent to own on the property.
There are also great lenders that I work with that can advise you on how best to quickly clean up the credit blemishes so you are focusing on what will gain you the best credit rating .
There are great programs available through MA Housing that offer low down payments and flexible qualifications on debt to income ratios.

There is hope ! Good luck ... and keep me in mind if I can help you or any of your friends or family whether they are buying or selling..
Thanks in advance,
