Doug McVinua answered:

The mortgage company wants you to be responsible first and foremost, make the payment every month, take care of the property etc. The documents up front are an attempt to prevent fraud, some true investors try and get a loan that states it is a 2nd home with no intention of living in the home.

Glad to answer any questions you might have.

Not at all. If you need help call Amelia Carlson or Gail Frances at Lake Havasu City Properties Rental Division. 928-854-7210 . Winter visitors will be leaving and there should be a lot to choose from. I know of a nice three bedroom that will be coming on the rental market in April on Green Acres.

Thank you for your inquiry.

The credit checks are there to protect the Landlord, and the lengths you have gone to fix your credit will work in your favor, as will having proof of employment and salary confirmation. The bottom line is if you can afford to pay the rent for the apartment you find, you should be OK.

I'd be happy to help you with your rental search, feel free to reach out to me to discuss more.

Helen Yuen answered:
Under the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), businesses and certain government buildings are required to take steps to make their buildings accessible to those who are handicapped. Provisions may include elevators, wider doorways that can accommodate wheelchairs and, in certain cases, wheelchair ramps. Certain exemptions are afforded to buildings on the basis of design or historic integrity. The U.S. Department of Justice has established an easy process for reporting problems.

Older buildings before 1990 have no handicap requirements, however, each state or city can make
up their own laws or requirements and enforce them.

It depends on how much time you put into managing properties. I have some clients who can manage their properties on just an hour a month.

Otherwise, if you're going by IRS definitions, you'll need to spend more than 50% of all your working hours managing to qualify as a professional. ... more

I personally do not know about this, but living in Easton since 2010 I can tell you the apartments you find here (and Bethlehem) are very cheap compared to NYC. I've seen decent ones for about $600 - $700/mo. You might have to put a down deposit, most likely. ... more
