This is an option that some owners will offer a renter, but you should be prepared to purchase the home sooner rather later. Most owners that offer a rent to purchase option are not expected to offer a long term rental to purchase. ... more

Interesting question Kavita, in that when does a roommate become a "boarder" or "tenant"?

David gave a very comprehensive answer.
Call the town and see how they define tenant versus roommate.

In W Orange a CO is required for all new leases and sales.
You need to go to the Fire headquarters on Valley Rd and pay for the inspection ahead of time ($35 if the inspection is at least 2weeks ahead of time), and to set up the appointment.

To be in compliance - You will need to have smoke detectors on each level of the home - you will receive a form that indicates where they belong. You will also need carbon monoxide detectors within 10 feet of any bedrooms - in addtion, you need a fire extinguisher in the kitchen (no more than 10lbs) - unlike other towns, WO does not require that the extinguisher be attached to the wall.

Hope this helps

Google dual agency, read the consent form, follow it. When the same broker is involved on both sides, the consent form must be signed and followed. Renting or buying. ... more

Hello Deborah,

Just out of curiosity, where did you decide to locate? Are you in/close to Florham Park or did you choose someplace closer to NYC?
