I am in a similar situation in NJ, what kind of Attorney handles this?
My first $216,000
2nd $51,000
Market value is ~$245,000
THe monthly payment of the second went up. I am paying the first in full and paying the second as much as i can. I have been tremendous hardship last 2-3 years because of litigation with my previous business partner. I tried to do loan modification with the second,i was rejected due to my debt/income ratio. My debt are the company debts that business partner used every company card (which are attached to my SSN) and dissappeared , very long story. So my debt is very high due to this , i do not have any debt on my own ,even car payment. But this is the situation, for example all the money he spent at Home Depot for his houses is my debt becaue Home Depot business Store card was belong to our company and that is secured with my personal SSN.There are several of these.
I need a "buffer"year , or "breathing room "
from the second lien holder at least until the end of my litigation but i was rejected due to above reason, i would like to speak with an attorney (what kind ??/ or any suggestion? i am from NJ

As a former realtor, try ringing some doorbells around dinner time or early evening and ask the owners your question. Realtors are eager to list and sell homes so they will not always tell you the truth. Also if realtors don't live on that street, they don't know the answer to your question. You can also try ringing doorbells in the early morning in case people work different shifts. ... more

No it is not binding. Amenities must be written into the contract for it to be officially included. An MLS listing is considered an advertisement and there is a statement in fine print on the bottom that reads "Information stated in the listing is warranted but not guaranteed and is the responsibility of the buyer to verify all information contained in the listing." ... more

Hello Sam, yes you may if you are in payment arrangements and have made minimum 3 payments on time. Your qualifications will be determined by your credit profile, debt to income ratios, fico scores, loan program and how much you want to invest into the purchase.

You may consider FHA 3.5% down from a minimum 580 fico score and fico scores between 500-579 will require 10% down for FHA. If you have a minimum 620 fico score you may consider 3% down conventional.

Your scores can be raised within 3-4 days in most cases to qualify for programs, rates and terms as necessary. How much do you pay in rent and what is the maximum payment you are looking to afford?

If you figure out what cities/zip codes you are considering, minimum number of bedrooms, baths and the maximum payment/price you are looking to achieve you can be emailed listings to fit your search criteria. Check out the web reference link below...

Maybe look up the parcel number on the county assessor's website. Other than that, I have no idea to track value from 20 years ago. Here's the link: https://mcassessor.maricopa.gov/

Yes you can, but you will have to post on Zillow. From there your listing will migrate to Trulia.

Kathy Burgreen answered:
There are plenty of investors who will buy your home and lease it back to you. HOWEVER, these investors will charge you a much higher rent. When you're ready to buy, expect these investors to charge you a very high interest rate, high fees, etc. It's all about how much profit the investor can make. The more money they can collect from you - the better (more money in their pockets).

Now you know why it's a stupid idea. Do yourself a favor. Just rent and work hard on improving your credit and saving money. Eventually, you will be able to buy - just not now.

Karen Peyton answered:
For the sake of a lawsuit, it's probably better you NOT libel a previous tenant by posting to "any" website. Many landlords pull (both) a credit report and public records report to reveal payment habits, judgments, and evictions. Rest assured the tenants with whom you had difficulty - will be discovered! ... more

As an agent to of the things that usually catch my eye are lack of continuity and lack of purpose. To that end, if you install an RV gate is it reasonable it can be used as such? Is there anything on the side of your house that would prevent entry and exit into the backyard through the gate? You mention it's a "small section." ... more
