Condos are typically shared communities. As an owner of condo you usually have a voice, when it comes to rules about aesthetics, safety, etc. Apartments often have the community rules, too, but they’re usually set by the landlord.
Take into consideration that when you buy an apartment its possible that many of your neighbors will be renters, and they can move in and move out often.

The majority of properties in the San Francisco are listed with a 6% commission. This commission is split by the agent for buyer and the one for seller- 3 percent each.

That's very possible. The previous inspection report belong to the first buyer and it could be the buyer didn't release the report to the seller (or buyer's agent) out of courtesy to the seller OR it could be that the seller and seller's agent not wanting to receive the report. I've seen it either way. If you are concern about not receiving the first inspection report then I would suggest that you look for another property. You will need to have the property inspected by your own inspector regardless whether the property has a previous inspection or not so the decision is yours whether you'd like to proceed.

Good luck!

I have a subtenant that I want out of my apartment. He is not on my lease. My lease agreement with my landlord was almost two years prior to him coming there. However, I give him receipts for each weekly rent that he pays for the room, because he requested them. Will this be a problem? ... more

You said you made a non-contingent offer which was accepted, creating a binding contract. Buyers can usually cancel based on a contingency, but you may not have had any. Did you and the Seller agree to liquidated damages? It's possible that if the buyer placed no money at all into escrow, then a judge might ignore the literal language of the law and disregard the liquidated damages provision, thereby, permitting the seller to prove actual damages.You should consult with an attorney! Best of luck! ... more

First, the agent should go in there and negotiate a lower sales price and close your deal.

Yes it is completely bogus that the credit reporting companies will not allow us to give the credit report to client.

I would say:

" I do not recall applying for credit, but did not hot obtain any new credit."

That should do it.

Hi Julia,
At first, I will advise you contact to deal with your bad credit score. I lost my house about 3 years ago, my credit score was so bad I had a ton of medical bills in collection. It was hard to even rent an apartment to live, as we all know most landlords run credit checks. I knew I had to do something to get back on track. So then, I hired ( and few weeks later my credit score was repaired and went from under 500 now at 728. WOW! I can't believe it. I am now buying a home, signing the papers in a week/two. So don't ever think you'll never be able to rebuild your life again. All you need do is apply yourself together by taking the step now to get it done, you just might be amazed at what you can do with their help. ... more

I would be more than happy to help you with your purchase. The issue that people have with DALP is that it is not enough to cover what they need because most purchases in SF require a Jumbo loan because of the county loan limits. But there are a few other programs that might better help you. I know of a CU in SF that is doing 100% LTV up to $1 million.
