Alan May answered:
You've discovered this prior to closing. You (through your attorney) have the right to negotiate a settlement - maybe you have them pay a couple years worth of the assessment... in an upfront cash payment or just a reduction of purchase price...?

You could also legally withdraw from the purchase. Discuss with your Realtor and attorney. You have options.

I am having the same experience - my assistance sits for hours trying to connect and sending email requests for support on items that need attention.

Caleb Hart answered:
I agree with the other comment by saying you need to prove the seller knew about the damage. If you can't, I'm afraid you might have to pay for repairs. Something like that happened to me when I bought my first house. I was pretty livid myself. ... more

Is the offer in writing, using a purchase agreement? If so, you just need to sign the agreement and then your home should be sold by the closing date specified.

I am not sure if you are asking a question about Yorkville or New Lenox. I am very familiar with New Lenox and would be happy to answer your question. Please feel free to contact me. This property does not come up as for sale in our system.

Evelyn Santiago answered:
Each subdivision has its own Homeowner's Association which has the rules and regulations for that particular subdivision. Homes without HOA's will have to abide by the regulations of the city of Yorkville or if it's in unicorporated area, Kendall County.

Which restriction are you most concerned about? Do you need a specific usage for your home? Let me know if you need additional information.

Good luck!

Angle Gryniak answered:
I am a Grande Reserve homeowner. We purchased our house in 2007, its big, its beautiful, and the neighborhood is perfect. We do unfortunately pay SSA, which is built into our mortgage. There are pros and cons to it, SSA funded the community to have it's own private club house (available for rent) and access to the pool and multiple parks/fields. $20K is a lot of a neighborhood that still has vacant lots but you do have an elementary school on site and I definitely see police presence. On a 30 year loan it doesn't seem like much and if you utilize the facilities it is fine.

Our neighbors just relocated jobs and rented their home out to a great family. We were interested in renting our house out as well to relocate closer to our jobs.

Peter Kedzior answered:
If your documented income is large enough to support two mortgages, you should definitely qualify. However, if you plan to use rental income to supplement what you are making now in order to qualify for the second mortgage - you would have to show to the lender that you had a full-year rental income from your current residence and that it was reported to the IRS. ... more

Ron Thomas answered:
You are desperate!
Your Credit or Finances, or both, will not allow you to go the conventional route:
You need the Seller to help you out!

The Seller will know it, and you are going to pay dearly for this service:
There aren't too many altruistic Sellers out there.

The terms that can be written into a Lease/Option can be dangerous to you:
How long is the Option period?
How much money are you putting in to the Option?
What happens if you are not able to execute the Option?
How do you know what your financial situation will be 2-5 years from now?
How much is the rent in the meantime?
Who will be responsible for maintenance and repair in the meantime?
What will be the Market Value of the home in 2-5 years?
What will be the Selling price 2-5 years from now?

This is the Ultimate Caveat Emptor!
