It sounds like you have a duplex in a single fam area? Your job now is to apply for a non conforming use permit... speak with your local building inspector and zoning department.

Location: Jamaica Plain, not Roxbury. It also has off-street parking. Both bedrooms are full, not one partial. Again, the info on Zillow is correct.

Yes. Do you have another method for closing and getting the keys?

I would first be concerned about the contract you have on your house to sell! You signed a legally binding contract with the buyers. You can try to terminate but they could sue you for specific performance (and force you to sell). You might want to hire an attorney.

So let's say the buyers are nice people and are willing to terminate the contract and not sue you. You still have a listing agreement you signed with your Realtor. You can certainly ask to terminate the listing agreement with her because she did a poor job for you. But...she did find you a buyer for your house. She could argue in a court of law that she is owed a commission! Time to talk to an attorney. Good luck!

I bought my condo 10 years ago. With the knowledge that the under ground parking garage space was "sold". I did not know at the time that the spaces were not deeded and there was one assigned space to each unit. (48 units, 48 spaces). I have tried to fight this with at least 3 different attorneys and they seem to be baffled and say they cannot figure it out. The President of the board told me the space wass sold years ago to one of the condo owners. I approached the owners of the space and they told me it "came with their unit" years ago. I believe they are the owners, the story goes, gave my previous condo owner $5000 for the space because she did not drive it anymore. Again, these are not deeded spaces, so they cannot be sold. In the meantime, this condo owner has sold the unit with the two spaces, however, his wife is still the mortgage holder. They produced a title that shows the new tenants name as the owner, however, they financed it for this person. There are no rentals allowed, so I believe they did this to show this woman was the new owner so now she has my additional space. I am at a complete loss. Recently the President told me she is trying to wait until this owner sells or she will talk to the building attorney to see if it can be returned to my unit....I am not holding my breath because I've called her twice in last two weeks and she tells me attorney has been in depositions all week. I am beyond frustrated and feel completely mistreated in this building. Please, if you can offer any help or advice, I'd truly appreciate this. Sincerely, R. ... more

It is legal. Agents are allowed to pay a portion of their commission to any principle (buyer or seller) in the transaction.

Try This and MAYBE
From time to time send them a email (anonymous) asking questions see if they answer the email give them 2 times and if not fire them the listing contract says they will use due diligence in finding a buyer. They are NOT working for you! Hire someone who will work for the commission. No reason to pay for something you are not getting.
just ask them if they value referrals and future business it should be no problem

I am selling my house and would like a copy of the bank appraisal. I am told that can not have the copy since the buyer paid for the appraisal. Is this true?

Lisa, I see you are either looking or selling in Cambridge. Depends on location within Cambridge, size of the home, whether it can be converted to multi units, parking, etc. I suggest you contact an agent or two to get their sense on what you can expect. If it is Priced it to sell it will get multi offers well above that price until it reaches an equilibrium. . ... more

Not that important. An assessment is the value placed on a property by the town by the Assessor's Office for the purpose of determining the property tax due. Recent sales are a much much better indication of value. I have seen assessment be off by $100,000 plus either way. ... more
