The simple answer is no. Since solar leases only allow you to lease the panels, they are not considered a fixture of the property. However, Phoenix area statistics for solar resale homes show that homes with solar leases actually sell 25% faster than the market average in third quarter of 2014. Most solar companies, including SolarCity, have a multitude of options for buyers to assume the solar lease with little to no hassle...typically if a buyer can qualify for a mortgage, they can qualify for a lease, especially considering that 75% of all solar home sales in the Phoenix area involve mortgage financing. With 100 or so solar home sales a month on average, lease transfers are not an issue.

Use a property management company. That's what I did to manage my property while I was out of the state and had good luck doing that. If you want low hassle, this is the way to go.

You should approach your landlord or property manager and ask for the changes that you want. If both parties are in agreement, you will sign an addendum to the lease that modifies the terms. ... more

Some of these properties for rent are actually condos or townhouses, that is the reason some of the owners advertise the properties that way.

Hi Grace,

Sorry to hear of your problems.

Did you use the same loan originator for your purchase as well as your refinance? If so, they should have warned you of this problem.


A quick solution that I have used in the past & may still be available to you, is to change the occupancy type of your refinance to a an investment property, then continue with your purchase, if it's not to o late.

Please feel free to contact me directly if you have any further questions, I'd be glad to help.

All the best,
Ros

Hi Alok,

You locked into a great rate! Once you lock, you are protected from the the rise interest rates & you forego your ability to ride the market in search of a lower rate. We all want the lowest rate possible, that is understood, but once you lock a rate, those funds are actually reserved for you, based on the "rental" price at the time you locked that rate.

One way to look at this is, with rates so low, your downside potential of rates increasing, is much greater than the rates decreasing; this is an insurance policy for you. Now, you see that the rate dropped 1/8 (0.125%) of a point, when you "dollarize" that decrease, how much more would you have saved in interest on a monthly basis?

Now, if rates increased by 0.375%, how much would you have lost by the increased payment when you dollarize that number?

A bird in the hand...

All the best,
Ros
