Laura Feghali answered:
Hello Helen,
First you want to check with the home owner's association to determine whether or not you can rent out your unit as some complexes have restrictions on this issue.

Also, you probably received a lower interest rate on your refinance due to it being owner occupied. I suggest that you contact your lender to inquire what additional fees may apply and what the change in the interest rate may be if you decide to turn it into an investment property.

Good luck to you!

We have several properties available for rent that will offer a 6 month term. Of course, the selection of rentals depends on your specific criteria and price range. We also require a credit check to show credit worthiness.

Please let us know if we can be of assistance.

Good luck.

You may wish to consider some of the managed luxury rental complexes in the downtown area of Stamford such as: Avalon Greyrock, Parc Grove, Morgan Manor, or Glenview House. They sometimes offer 6 month leases but you will usually pay a bit more per month than if you were to sign a yearly lease.

I suggest "googling" them to find out more information about pricing, availability, and the amenities they offer.

Good luck to you!

Hi Patrice

The simple answer is: typically a townhouse owns the land (the small tract) it sits on, while condo shares the the land with other units. Therefore you may have condos on first floor, second floor, third floor...and so on.

Timothy Vale answered:

One excellent resource for this issue is the City of Stamford's website at From there, the issue is discussed and a map is present showing the areas of contamination and the specific chemicals. On the website uses the pull down menu for departments and choose Health Department. From there on the left is Well Water Testing. That will give you a brief update. From there phone the Health Department with anything further. THey can best comment on the well water remediation process moreso than any realtor. They are a great resource.

Good morning Livio,
Unfortunately US and Connecticut law forbids real estate agents from categorizing some neighborhoods as "better" or "worse." Besides, a "better" neighborhood for some may not be seen as such to others. We can certainly give factual information on school testing results on standardized exams and also the Stamford Police Department has statistics on crime rates for all parts of Stamford. You can discuss further with your agent once you are touring the City with them. For preliminary information on schools please visit and for the police department please visit
Thank you, Mark

Most banks say that you need to wait 3 years after the start market of your short sale unless you were current on your mortgage payments at the time of the short sale.

Laura Feghali answered:
Hi Karen,
Yes, the neighborhood surrounding Seaside Ave. is relatively safe. Many of the residents there do walk to Cove Island Park and other amenities in the community.

I suggest contacting Stamford's police department to inquire about if there is any crime activity and of what type to obtain that information first hand.

Here's a link to the police department's web site in Stamford that has their contact numbers:

Hope this is helpful to you!

Hi Mu,

While I'm not a banker, our company has a mortgage division. If you send me an email, I would be delighted to give you the name of a broker to whom you can speak.

Andrew Davis answered:
Hi Patrice,
Most buyer's prefer condos over co-ops. Co-ops, you only own a share, not the actual unit. There is also more restrictions on who is able to purchase the co-ops. Not to mention, a lot stricter rules on renting out your unit etc.

I'd be glad to give you further information.

call me anytime 203-249-7430

Yes, you are able to sell your unit. There are not too many coop units still remaining and there are rules and regulations as stated that will need to be adhered to but it can be listed and sold as any other coop or condo unit. ... more

Since no link is visible, either contact the listing agent, or any local agent/realty office can also help, they all have access to the same information.

Ron Thomas answered:
The Lawyer is your ultimate authority, and you should be advised by him.
The CCR's are the guidleine, what ever they say.

As to why the HOA would do that:
They probably have a covenant that THEY have to abide, which says that only a certain number of unit may be rentals. If that is the case, then they are between a rock and a hard place because they didn't share this with the residents.

We can't help you; you really, really need a Lawyer.

Good luck and may God bless

Hello Good Charlotte,
There are no photos of 68 Saint George Ave. in Stamford because the home currently is not for sale. Old expired information about the home still exists on the Trulia site for some reason even though the photos are removed.

In general, it is the landlord. However, there is an agency in Stamford that collects both from landlord and rentors. I would be cautious in using that broker. You will just be paying additional money. ... more

Each condo complex is different. Some will and some will not. Some of the older compexes don't allow the installation of washer dryers due to the fact that the plumbing is old. Feel free to call or email me anytime with other questions.

Have a great weekend.
