Keep in mind that you're addressing this question to a national WEBSITE that is just a marketing avenue for agents. Trulia is NOT a real estate company nor a property management company. There isn't' anyone sitting here waiting to respond to inquiries. When you complete one of those forms, asking for more info...it does go to a bunch of agents (who have paid $$ to advertise here and get leads). But many agents are frustrated by these "leads" and may not respond to them. Are you inquiring about homes for sale or rent? The rental listings are full of scams. If you're looking to BUY you need to hire a REALTOR as a Buyer's Agent. He/she will be able to send you all available properties in the MLS (the only source for accurate listings). If you're asking about rentals, you should try contacting a local property management company directly. Most agents don't deal with rentals, which may also be why nobody is responding to you.... more
We all know that every city has its good areas and its bad areas. Toluca Lake is similar but very safe for the most part. It's known as an affluent city in the Los Angeles area where celebrities and entertainment industry execs live. If you stay around the Lake it is super safe, as you find your way up north of Riverside the dynamic changes just a bit.... more

The Coldwell Banker agent who is taking care of the short sale was the one who told me about the bank having control over the property. To my knowledge the sale has not officially gone through yet. This is what was forwarded to me via email:
"This is the brand new policy of Wells Fargo as of January 2010: to close expeditiously within 30 days of submitting an offer.
Thereâ€™s nothing I can do - itâ€™s beyond my control. Itâ€™s all in the hands of the bank: Wells Fargo.
If we donâ€™t close on time, then the property will go to the bank and youâ€™ll have to leave anyway.
If thereâ€™s any way I can help you find an alternative apartment, please let me know.
Your best bet will be West Side Rentals or the L.A. times on line.
Please see this email as an official 30 day notice to vacate the property above."
I spoke with my land lord yesterday and he offered my roommate and i $400 to move out in addition to our deposit. I am more than willing to move, I just feel as if 30days is way to short of notice being that i have to find a new condo, and save for move in costs.
I have been told by numerous people that there is a chance that I could negotiate relocation fees... I have yet to hear back from the attorney, but was wondering if anyone has heard of this?... more
West Toluca Lake is a great area. My suggestion to you is to think about how you feel about the freeway and being next to a church and whether or not you are hesitant to buy. Chances are potential buyers will go through those same questions.
One of the agents below suggested you go there at different times of the day - great idea!
All my best,

I've found many landlord that are struggling with their properties and they will do anything to get the rent today.
Go online to craigslist and call some landlord and negotiate.
