Tim Kunze answered:
Vic

If the loan was non-assumable, then how did you assume it? If you have not assumed it, only agreed to do so, then it is impossible for you to fulfill the agreement and the seller cannot hold you to it.

Just where in the buying process are you? Did you not have a Realtor(r) representing you? Even when buying a FSBO, you should still have someone representing you - if that's the case.

Contact me and let's see where you are and what can be done.

You can use 1.5% for a estimate of closing costs. Your agent can help you with this as can your lender for the lenders fee's.

Santa Clarita has many nice areas to live in: Canyon Country, Castaic, Newhall, Saugus, and Valencia. There is also Stevenson Ranch which is unincorporated but near by.
The Plum Canyon area you mention is in Saugus. There is two builders out there doing new construction. You have to be careful though because KB has a CFD charge of about $5K - $7K a year on top of your regular taxes. Shappell does not have the extra tax.
There is areas in Canyon Country that are really nice and some areas that are much less desirable. I am very familiar with all of Santa Clarita and specialize in buyers.
Canyon Country is divided into tracts with some having a CFD (an extra tax) and some not. Please feel free to check my link to homes available in Canyon Country.

Please let me know if you would like me to interview for the job as your Realtor. Thank you.

With FHA you will be qualified to purchase two years after the discharge of your Chapter 7 bankruptcy . You may qualify after 1 year of successful payments on a Chapter 13 BK.

Most likely best for daughter to purchase as a first time homebuyer.

These answers based upon the very limited information given.

Try contacting a local realtor directly (NOT through Trulia). Any agent is going to have access to your local MLS system, which has the most up to date listings. Trulia isn't the best source. Many time listings are under contract, or sold weeks ago. ... more

I know of a beautiful property in Costa Mesa but the rent is $3,300 a month. May be able to negotiate $3,200 but that would be the lowest.

Brian Head answered:
The "Rent to Own" also known as "Lease with Option to Buy" process is great if you can negotiate the right terms with the seller. In any real estate transaction you should have a real estate professional involved in the process for your protection. Until your on Title your still just a tenant and only have tenant rights. And, if your not on Title you really have no idea of whats happening with the Title. Now, with that being said, I've seen many different types of situations where the seller allowed the buyer to put a portion of the rent towards the down payment and I've seen situations where a buyer thought he was working towards a purchase but the mortgage wasn't being paid by the seller and the home went into default. Try to make arrangements to be involved with the Lender. Insist on making the payment directly to the Bank. Have the Seller sign an Authorization form so if you have questions for the Lender you can call them directly. These are the types things that a Real Estate Professional can protect you from. Also remember that the longer terms you can get, the better. Try to avoid a 1 year option, always go for 2 or 3 years, if you can get 5yr option, even better.
Be sure the terms of the purchase price are in line with the market value at the time the home changes Title. Who can really say what any home will be worth 2yrs let alone 5yrs from now. In this market the house could decrease in value. Be careful on who has the property tax obligation and insurance liability. Since your not on Title you cannot get a Homeowners insurance policy in your name. Your still a renter until your on Title. There are several other issues with this type of transaction so i can only say these two words. Buyer beware.
I'd be glad to consult you through this process if you need help.

Bob Phillips answered:
If the tenant and the outgoing owner have a written lease, the new owner USUALLY has to abide with the terms of the lease. There are a few exceptions, primarily if the outgoing owner is being foreclosed out of the property.

Even then, the new owner has to give at least 60 days notice - I think - before he can get the tenant to move out - UNLESS - the original lease might have ended, before then. It can get a little complicated, but usually, a tenant with a written lease is protected.

Of course, things are always open to re-negotiation.
