Many times landlords can look past credit issues as long as you have never been evicted, have a good rental history and a good job. Write a cover letter to them with your application.

Greetings
most condos (privately owned) include water, basic cable & trash removal - so all you need to pay is electric & internet etc…

Most apartment complexes charge separately for water, trash removal, cable etc…

so, be sure to ask what's included as it can vary from place to place.

good luck

Hello Lorriehasstruck:

Before you do anything else, contact the SF Rent Board or a rental attorney. Only they can give legal advise.

I have been a landlord in the past and my opinion would be that a landlord cannot be held responsible for an "Act of God". It's too bad that there are rats in the home to begin with so forget the couch and get her out of there!

If you need a referral for an attorney, I'm happy to help.

Good luck!

Gabriel

Greetings
it varies based on the term of the lease & the season (season is Dec-March in S. Florida)

generally, an unfurnished rental commands more rent for annual & a fully furnished or turnkey unit will command more for a short term or seasonal rental (3-6month range)

- for an annual rental the answer (unless it's perfect gorgeous furniture) is none.

take care

Not really enough information to respond to this intelligently, but in general you should get your deposit back unless damages are beyond normal wear and tear. Consult your lease and then an attorney if you think it's warranted.

Of course document the damage in photos and look at your policy first.
Your homeowner's policy should cover this!

Hello Pete,
Although many Realtor's like myself would be well versed to answer this question, the accurate answer would be to consult a Landlord/tenant attorney to be completely and legally informed of the tenants rights, your rights as a home owner and the overall process of doing an owner move in...

If you need the names of some great landlord/tenant attorney's please feel free to call me this afternoon..

Terry Bell answered:
With only six units, I don't think it takes to much effort to do a survey of how many residents have any plans of selling withing the next 5 years! If you are the only residents planning on selling then you should probably start interviewing several realtors from your area who can best advise you of the benefits of investing some money on that particular project. People generally forget that Realtors are happy to consult with you even if you are not going to sell immediately. Trulia makes it easy to look up realtors by zip code where you live!

Valencia Street in Mission Dolores.Near Fillmore Street in Pac Hts & Lower Pac Hts. Near Union Street in Cow Hollow. Near Chestnut Street in the Marina. Near Polk Street in Russian Hill.All except Valencia are near each other so you could potentially find a place that's walking distance to all them.

Also down by the ballpark is a fun area as well.

Hi Tiffany,

If you saw someone moving in it probably means the transaction closed, but the "crappy" realtor you mentioned didn't post it sold in the MLS.

You can call the S.F. MLS and let them know if it would make you feel better.

Best,

Hopefully NONE. The government has no place in real estate or mortgage markets except to regulate it fairly. Government over-involvement has been the cause of almost every real estate market bust over the past 60 years. It's better they just stay out. ... more

John Souerbry answered:
Your question is very surprising, because there has NEVER been a dream of universal home ownership in America. If we take the term "universal" litterally it means "everyone" - and that has never been, and never can be, possible. Home ownership is much like "full employment." There will always be people starting out who need time to build up wealth and income so they can buy a home without over-extending themselves financially. Home ownership is a dream that is made true by individuals and families who work hard, save, and EARN the ability to own a home. That route is not for everyone, therefore not everyone can - or should - own a home. ... more
