Judy, Stanwood is very nice, but Port Townsend is wonderful. Why would you want to move from there?
I lived there 18 years & wish I still did.

Good luck to you in any case

Look up the Landlord Tenant Act and check out Lease Termination. If you have a lease, it can't be terminated without cause. If you are month to month your lease will let you know how much notice the landlord has to give you.
If everything has been done properly, I guess it's time to find another place. You have a couple of weeks, so hopefully you'll find a place that's available right away. A local broker may be able to help you find your next home or you can check here, Craigslist and other sites. Just be careful about any deal that is too good to be true. Do not send money hoping to get keys. This is a common scam. Best of luck.

Jim Olive answered:
Depends what your lease says. Depends how the deposit ($1900) compares with the monthly rent ($??). Depends who you're dealing with and their feelings about litigation. Technically, if the lease says you have to be out by the first to avoid incurring another month's rent, then you will be liable for the additional months rent, and rent minus $1900 is what you will owe them. If you fail or refuse to pay they can take you to court for the money and they can mar your credit with failure to pay. Your best bet is to get out by the first or work something out with them ahead of time. Offer to pay them a pro-rated rent for the 5 days in question, should be worth a WHOLE lot less than $1900... ... more

Dear Dave,
Why are you asking about a sub prime loan when there are so many great loans out there?
Perhaps you need to speak with a really good lender. I'd be happy to help you get qualified for
a loan. Sometimes, due to circumstances, your don't qualify for any loan at this time. A great lender will help you change that, will counsel and guide you to a place where you can qualify.
Just my thoughts~
Good luck~

Judie Chambers answered:
If your friends really want to sell the house I'd have to say yes! The property may well be worth the full price however, the market will determine how much a buyer is willing to pay for the house. The other option would be to go ahead and pay an independent licensed appraiser to perform an appraisal. That way you have the proof of value in your hands. It also depends on the overall condition of the property, and neighborhood. Location, location, location has always been the most important determination as well. You never want to be the nicest home in the neighborhood because less valuable homes around you may drain some of the value from your property. Thirty years of experience has taught me that, it only takes the right person to see the home however, the house must appraise for what a buyer is willing to pay or the bank won't loan the buyer the money no matter how bad the buyers want it.
Hope this helps~

Judie Chambers answered:
I'm curious to find out how you have so much information about this property and how do you
know that the information you are getting is the truth? Just playing the devils advocate, I would be
very concerned about the fact that the owners of the property overbuilt for the septic system.
Does that make sense?

I would rent from a small operation or someone who only has one rental. I've found most people don't have a hard time finding a rental. Avoid bigger companies.
