It sounds like the loan you obtained was for an owner occupant. In theory you should contact your lender upon moving out. In practice if you make the payments on time they will likely not bother you. Check your loan paperwork for the particulars. ... more

Carole Cooper answered:
It is not as prevalent in some neighborhoods because of the rental limits placed on Section VIII rentals. There are many buildings in all neighborhoods that have a portion of their units dedicated to subsidized housing. Many years ago the land on the south side of Chicago was cheap and easy for the government to purchase when subsidized housing was built back in the 50's and 60's. Today you can find Section VIII properties in Presidential Towers, some buildings on Harbor Drive to name a couple, because developers received tax rebates if they allocated some of their units to subsidized housing. In certain neighborhoods it is just not advertised. You will find Section VIII housing everywhere in this city. ... more

You've put all your eggs in one basket; counting on Wells.
Why don't you start PLAN B; another lender that you can use, at least as a comparrison.
Oh, and thanks for serving!
How about contacting Navy Federal Credit Union, (they serve all 4 services).
Get your GFE from Wells, and get one from NFCU and compare.

Good luck and may God bless

LO's at mortgage banks may have their hands tied by the high cost loan provisions, but a local bank, i.e. CHASE and others should be able to do it.

Dear Loan Mod Searcher,

I am not finding anything negative on line. Your best bet is to also check with the Better Business Bureau.

That is hard to calculate because there are too many possible variables. You might say the areas that got hit the hardest might have the greatest increases based on a %, but is that all you care about? ... more

Philip Sencer answered:
You need to speak with an attorney bwecause that is a legal issue and those folks do not respond on this web site. I think the landlord is out of luck because he is NOT the current owner. IF the redemption suceeds and he becomes the landlord once again he will need a new lease with you as the old lease is no longer valid since he is no londer the owner..........but again, this is a legal issue. ... more

The best thing is to inspect the apartment before you move in for any signs of rodents. Also, if you call then "ground squirrels", then it doesn't sound as bad.

Best regards,

Philip Sencer answered:
I am not aware that an Auction has anything to do with a Court. An Auction is just an alternative means of selling R E rather than using the MLS. Courts have nothing to do with it. The Seller....REO bank.......must have clear title in order to sell something whether it is via the MLS or an Auction. As long as the Seller has proper title, not sure why a court would get involved. ... more

Hello dcarry,
I suggest that you contact the local police department to hear first-hand about the crime activity in the Marquette Park neighborhood. The police will have the most accurate and up-to-date information.

Best wishes!
