Ron Thomas answered:
I don't think you know what you are asking:
The ESCROW company collects the funds from parties, and holds it as a third party, until the Escrow closes.
They also handle all the paperwork.
Probably, things are a little different for ya'll in N.J., with Attorneys.
The Escrow Company is usually also the TITLE company; which does the title search, looks for LIENS, and dispenses TITLE INSURACE to cover you.
In any case, the BANK is not the recipient.

Be sure to get your GFE from the Lender, and your HUD1 from the Title Company.

Rent to own is a very viable option for your situation. As a real estate professional helping people with rent to own properties I have helped many people in your situation while waiting for short sale closings etc.

You can find landlords who would be interested in this type of transaction, as they would rather have a long term tenant buyer than a revolving door rental.

For Sale By Owner sellers are sometimes interested in rent to own, but most times they need their money up front.

In an event it is a good option for you while you get your credit back in line to purchase again.

This property is located in an Adult Community where the minimum age is 55 years young. Unless your children are older than 18 years old, this community will not fit your needs. It is not out of the question to find housing with poor credit as it will be up to the Landlord, however, your combined strong income will be a plus. Feel free to contact me with your specifics. ... more

Rosemarie McGeehan answered:
Many adult communities have rules regarding commercial vehicles being parked outside of the residences. Some don't allow them at all and some will allow them so long as they are garage kept. I suggest you personally contact the association and question them on what is permitted. If you need help finding a particular assocation's phone number, please let me know and I will get the number for you. ... more

No, the only way it comes into play for mortgage underwriting is if it has a cash value and the loan you apply for requires cash reserves. The cash value of the life insurance can be used for reserves.
Of course your wife can use the settlement to pay off the house if something happens to you but it does not factor in the decision making process. Good luck,

Hi Dave,

Toms River has six/seven condo communities with basements. Penny Layne,Anchorage,Chelsea Square,The Cedars,Sarasota, and Laurel Commons are condo developments with basements, The Meadows are actually patio homes w/ basements that are often lumped in with the townhome style condos. We can narrow it down more if you are looking for full basements, walk-out basements, or even finished basements. There are various price ranges and the communities are all over the township. If you give me some more specifics, I can help you zero in on the right development for you. ... more

Thank you for your inquiry. I'm not sure. They may allow small screen room type additions, but you would need to request that information from them. Let me know if you have any other questions or would like to view the property.
Have a great day,
Lisa Lopez

You are correct. A landlord can ask for first month's rent and a security deposit of 1.5X the monthly rent max. Attached is the latest truth in lending booklet from the NJ Real Estate Commission. A lot of people also believe you can charge an additional deposit fee for pets, also inaccurate, the deposit can not exceed 1.5X the base rent. ... more
