In my opinion, it depends on the contract signed beforehand. I would review the contract and see who's responsibility it falls under. If you can't find anything, I would suggest calling the owner and discussing the matter with them. They should be able to help you figure out everything you need. http://www.elitepestcontrol.com.au/pest-control ... more

NACA Online Operations answered:
NACA will be happy to work with you. NACA does not use your credit score in any manner, though we do work with you on resolving any charge-offs or collections that have happened in the last two years, and your bill payment history must be on time for the past 12 months.

The NACA program offers no down payment, no closing costs, a fixed below market interest rate, and the ability to buy down the interest rate even further, potentially to near zero.

Just go to the NACA website at http://www.naca.com and sign up for a free Home Buyer's Workshop.

Brian Martucci answered:
Is your BK 13 ongoing, or paid off? If ongoing when are payments up? You may be able to get an FHA loan.

Here is what Fannie Mae says on Conventional loans:

A distinction is made between Chapter 13 bankruptcies that were discharged and those that were dismissed. The waiting period required for Chapter 13 bankruptcy actions is measured as follows:

two years from the discharge date, or
four years from the dismissal date.
The shorter waiting period based on the discharge date recognizes that borrowers have already met a portion of the waiting period within the time needed for the successful completion of a Chapter 13 plan and subsequent discharge. A borrower who was unable to complete the Chapter 13 plan and received a dismissal will be held to a four-year waiting period.

Exceptions for Extenuating Circumstances

A two-year waiting period is permitted after a Chapter 13 dismissal, if extenuating circumstances can be documented. There are no exceptions permitted to the two-year waiting period after a Chapter 13 discharge.

I would say that it is partially the tenants responsibility. I know that some landlords will take money off of the deposit if they have to clean the carpet after you move out. Whenever I moved out of a rented place I always at least looked into cleaning the carpets. If you aren't sure about it, you can always ask your landlord what is expected of you.

Caleb Hart answered:
It all just depends on your town's building codes. It also depends on if you are in a condo or something like that. We can build fences up to 8 ft. in my area. It's pretty nice because you can have a lot of seclusion that way. http://www.jcfence.com/Vinyl_Fencing_Chain_Link_Fencing_Wood_Fencing_Providence_RI.html ... more

To have your home on Trulia, you must be listed by a Realtor as the homes here flow directly off the local MLS's or can be input only by someone with a valid license number. Good Luck

Ernie Behrle answered:
Karen & Thorn... Besides Zillow, you can also use ForSaleByOwner.com of which there is some sort of fee or for free on Craigslist.com. Be careful of Craigslist as it is full of scan artists...some of whom will assume your listing online and try to scam people out of money by advertising it for rent. As far as cost by a Realtor, it will cost you whatever the listing commission fee is. If interviewing Realtors, the one thing to ask is is how pro internet they are. For example, I pay extra to Feature my listings here on Trulia so that I can enhance them. Good Luck ... more

Brian F. Walsh Buyer Agent answered:
Hi Victoria,

I do not believe it is possible to remove your home from this or any real estate website. These site basically just show you every home in the country whether for sale or not. I tried to research a way to remove, but there does not seem to be any way.

Regards,
Brian

Jimmy Payne answered:
Wilmington is a great city. My wife's family is there and she grew up visiting all the time and we visit 3-4 times a year. My wife's Aunt is the top agent in Brunswick County and can help set your path. The best thing you can do is find a strong buyer representative REALTOR with the ABR designation that knows the area you want to buy in. When looking for a lender, find someone that is local and will be able to provide references or see who the top lenders are in Wilmington and shop around to find the best rate and lowest fees. Best of luck and let me know if you would like to get in touch with my wife's Aunt. ... more
