>> Did you check to see if the house in pre-foreclosure? Just a precaution.

This wouldn't change their contractual obligations to the owner at all. They still owe her the rent whether or not the home is in pre-foreclosure. At this time the only proof they have that the owner agreed in writing to use security as last month is that email. If they didn't have that, they'd remain contractually obligated to pay last month even with that certified letter, which has itself no response and therefore no agreement. The email is the key to the agreement of the change to the terms in the lease. ... more

The shame about this is it is the landlord's responsibility. The tenant, relies solely upon the landlord, to enter the home safely. incl C/O. It is the landlords responsibility.

There are no monetary damages that would think of but an attorney would tell you more. But your landlord could be up the creek without a paddle so to speak.

#1 City would have a difficult time getting you out #1
#2 Landlord would have a more difficult time. Everyday you are there he is fined. He could evict but that also takes time. His legal right to evict is also dampened because of your allowed illegal entry.

Landlords need to pay close attention to this part of their responsibility. Not even let a suit case or a chair be moved in. Tenants could just stop paying because of the legalities and little recourse of the landlord. Tenants are difficult to be moved out and landlords are fined daily for the violation. I would not create such a burden on the landlord because it will be stressful if you to linger your stay also. It could be as much as moving out for a day or two to fix and reinspect. Ask the landlord for credit compensation for your troubles, something like a free month for your disposition... I don't think that is too much to ask for. It could have been an honest oversight from an inexperienced investor. Seen it many times... Landlord thinks the C/O from the last tenant was good for all others afterward going in. But each new tenant needs a new c/o....It's an expensive oversight never the less.

As far as helping the landlord, it is their responsibility. You will most likely have to move out for "landlord " to obtain a C/O on the property depending on the violation. But as a result you are also affected because of the landlord's actions or in actions... I see this as a burden on you and your family moving into the home when in fact you were not supposed to. But as Joe said, you admittedly here share some responsibility entering the home before a c/o was made.

The landlord must also register you and the occupants with the city and fire marshal. But again that is the landlords responsibility. But for safety sake you should make sure the city knows all occupants ages names etc.

This information is not intended to be legal advise. Any actions or information taken from this response should be sought for legal advise from an attorney first.

No. Lenders base mortgages on the lessor of the sales price or the appraised value. You can not borrow more than the home's value.

HI again Amanda
I admire your perseverence!!

OK, since you are determined to buy this home, I would leave no stone unturned. You (your agent or their broker) may want to do ALL the things you mentioned:

1. Reach out directly to the sellers either in Florida if you have their address, or hopefully by mailing a letter to their house here, as I am sure their mail is being forwarded

2.If you know the bank that is in the middle of this, it can't hurt to try to reach out to them, too, although that is most likely a long shot at this point

3.Make sure your agent (or the broker) CALLS the listing agent/agency to find out the STATUS of the listing - this is MOST important - ie: Is it still listed on the MLS?? Has it been withdrawn from the market??? If so, was it an unconditional release, or are the sellers still obligated to the agency.?.....Get these questions answered, and that may help point you in the right direction ....or at least tell you what your next step is. If the property is no longer listed for sale, then reaching out to the sellers will at least tell you what they may be doing next., or where they may be listing it.

Once you find out the status of the home on the market, then you will at least know who may be handling the sale. At the very least, getting a letter to the sellers will let them know you are interested in pursuing this purchase.

Understand that the sellers have walked away - they are off in Florida, and obviously are upside down on their mortgage and in financial distress (with this home, anyway). Their enthusiasm for this sale might not be as high as your enthusiasm for buying it!
As I said in my earlier post, this will be an uphill battle, but you seem ready, willing and able!!

Good luck.........update us...get those questions asnwered.

If you'd like to speak privately, please feel free to email or call me. I don't work in your area, so I am not lookoing to drum up business - just to be helpful - after almost 25 years in the business, I have answered a few questions in my time!! ha

Best wishes....

Gregory Bain answered:
You may be right - your realtor may have something to do with it. But, not what you think. A difference in a sale for $8000 would be about a $100 increase in the commission he would receive and be required to may tax on come next April 15. Do you think your realtor would try to make an extra $100 off of you with a roll of the dice you could walk out on the deal and the total commission received would be ZIP, NADA, ZERO. I don't think an agent would put their earned dollars in jeopardy over a $100, do you? What next you ask? Well, I guess you need to re-evaluate what the home is really worth to you. It may be "reasonable" to the seller based on their research of the market. Walk or Buy - only you can decide. ... more

Paul Howard answered:
The deed was prepared by the seller or the seller's attorney or an attorney for your title company on behalf of the seller. Mortgage companies don't prepare deeds. They may, though, require that the cosigner of a note be on the mortgage and deed. If you signed the mortgage too and you mother cosigned it seems that your name should be on the deed too. Was this a surprise and when did you find out? At closing? After closing? Ask your real estate agent to track down the source of the problem - probably starting with the title company. Was the failure to include your name a mistake? Go to a real estate attorney if necessary. This matters. ... more

Frederick R Giebel Jr. IFA answered:
The most efficient way to commute to NYC is to get the bus in Mt Laurel, NJ. A lot will depend on what time you travel. I would advise that you Google map from your proposed Woodbury location to The Greyhound Bus Terminal on Fellowship Rd and Route 73 in Mount Laurel. The bus ride takes 1hr 40min and goes to the NYC Port Authority. Few people in Gloucester County do this but it is certainly an alternative. The bus ride is comfortable and people often work during the ride via laptop. It is the same congenial business crowd everyday. Most of them however live in Burlington and Camden counties.

There are also other alternatives like the Riverline from Camden to Trenton and then the Hamilton train or travel the NJ Turnpike to the Hamilton Train.

Your housing costs in Woodbury will be significantly lower than most more northern locations. Woodbury is within the Philadelphia metro area which is filled with a broad choice of commercial, entertainment, cultural and shopping opportunities. You can be in downtown Philly in 20 minutes.

Woodbury is an old colonial era town that is close to major routes of high speed access like the NJ Turnpike and Routes 295 and 42. The west side of Route 45 (Broad St) has attractive older homes full of charm and character. It has a modest business district and is the county seat of government. The east side between Broad and Evergreen Ave. is generally less desireable due to inconsistent property maintenance, mixed property use and more numerous rental properties, that are typically converted single family residences that include significant functional obsolesence. East beyond Evergreen Ave is an area of large early 20th Century homes and a beautiful lake and park. Good luck ,Gloucester County is a beatiful place to live with lots of colonial era history and recreational opportunities.
