Here are some thoughts.....

1) The landlord may be responsible for and/or willing to make some of those modifications on your behalf before you move in. Hence, you wouldn't have to worry about your security deposit.

2) Discuss what you need to do with your landlord upfront and ask if it will have an effect on your security deposit.

3) Be prepared to remove such modification and and repair any damage caused by said modification before you move out.

Good luck!!

Yes. First of all you can always buy a home with cash. Second, if you are seeking a mortgage, underwriting standards will require a two year waiting period, but after that you will once again be able to qualify for a loan, provided you can meet all the other requirements. Bankruptcy is not the end, it is a new beginning. ... more

Javier Meneses answered:
First thing is to identify the grants available to any particular buyer. This is a bit difficult because not all grants are known to all real estate professionals, so they're even less known to buyers. Still, it's best for buyers to ask their Realtor(s), Loan Officers and even attorneys in addition to doing their own research on which grants, if any, are available to them.

Each grant has their own requirements, and process for how buyers can apply. Most of these grants are designated for first time home-buyers who intend on purchasing a primary residence, and fall under a certain income bracket or specific townships or counties. Grants often come contingencies, mainly requiring that home-buyers live in the homes for a specific time frame, or the grants then become fully or partially payable back to the organization(s) who issued the grants.

You can contact the listing agent who will be able to help you learn more about that specific property (and probably will know a lot about similar properties in the area). To find an agent, just click on the yellow button on the property's Trulia listing and you will be able to start a dialogue.

Please let me know if you have any questions or if I can help with anything else. I am happy to be a resource for you. Good luck with the search!

Best,
Ali, Trulia Voices Community Manager

Michael Denniston answered:
HI Rebecca, great question. It really depends on the specifics of the transaction.Is it a purchase or refinance? Does the owner reside on property or operate a business onsite? . Is the commercial space used for offices or retail? And the list goes on and on. Many of my investor clients have benefited from my experience relationships with local and out-of-state lenders who are great in their respective mixed use niches.

Another option may be the FHA 203k mortgage to purchase or refinance a mixed use property, but only if the borrower will live onsite and the commercial space doesn't exceed 49% of the total floor space for a two story building. The 203k loan is the best way to get a 30 yr mortgage with a low fixed rate on a mixed use property! I am available for more information or assistance, if needed. Please contact me directly at 917.699.0183 or via email.

I value your feedback, please hit the thumbs up if my reply was helpful. All the best.
