That is going to be hard to proof. The inspector checks the outlets to make sure they are in working over, however they can't see behind the walls of the outlet. I'm not sure how you are going to proof that the inspector was paid off. It should be in the inspection report what was checked and what wasn't. I suggest you speak with a lawyer. ... more

You may find my website of value. I've predefined search result predominately for King and Pierce counties in WA for multi family. You can however search surrounding areas in WA. Listings can be refined by city, building such as duplex, triplex, 4plex and many other amenities. Listings are updated almost instantly from the MLS in addition to capability to save search notifications for newly listed properties.
I would be happy to keep you informed of properties per any requested criteria as well. There is a very high demand for rentals and seemingly ongoing increases in market rental rates making for a good return on many multi family properties.

I'm likely a little late on this as I'm sure your inspection contingency timeline has expired but I thought it was a good question to answer for future reference. The home inspection contingency is very vague, essentially you don't have to define any certain repair items to rescind the contract.
An inspection response addendum would be sent to the seller suggesting buyers inspection of the property is disapproved and earnest money shall be refunded. You would also not need to provide the inspection report to the seller. Hope everything worked out. Regards,

Depending on your situation, it could be faster than that. I have helped hundreds of folks who started out with less than perfect credit and eventually purchased a home. We lend in all 50 states and I'd be happy to discuss your specific situation if you would like. Small world, my first home was off 72nd by the Elmers breakfast joint there. I'm told there is a Bass Pro shops near now and I can't wait to come back and visit. ... more

Kary Krismer answered:
I believe there is, but you'd need to consult a real estate attorney. The issue is whether the repair terms survive the contract. I suspect you're dealing with a small claims court matter if the seller won't agree to fix it.

FYI, as to terminology your agent is the selling agent. The seller's agent is the listing agent.

Kary Krismer answered:
If you or a prior owner listed the house, and that listing was somehow fed to Trulia, then someone did effectively give permission to use the photos. Trulia apparently has a way to remove those. Also, as to the photos, I wouldn't assume they are yours. Ownership is more likely that of a real estate agentor the photos of a professional photographer.

The rest of the information comes from public records and I don't believe there is a way to remove that.

wouldn't think it would be a problem. No overtime or bonus income would be allowed for qualifying purposes and if it is hourly as opposed to salaried then you need to show a few months of track record at the new income, and it needs to be CONSISTENT at 40 hours or more ... more
