Lisa it depends if there is a lien on your current house or are you worried aboout the house you are buying, I would think if his name is on it they can can lien in no matter when it happened before or after marriage. you may want to ask an attorney in your state as laws differ from state to state to make sure. ... more

Great questions...would suggest that you talk with an attorney on this one. Not sure why this would come up on a title search for new property here in GA? Also, if you are not named and it was premarriage, that seems good for you. You can certainly be the only one on a title in GA...assuming that you qualify for a loan on your own, which I would recommend that you discuss this with whomever is doing your loan.

Bottom line - get this resolved now with professional advise from attorney and mortgage institution that you are using. Have all of the documentation/letters, etc. that you have on the issue when you consult the pros.

Good luck!

Tina Lam answered:
This is really something you should ask your Realtor. But, for REO deals purchases with all cash, a short time frame is very common. That's one of the reasons why you get a discount in the first place. The assumption is that you're knowledgeable about the property and have the money to close quickly. If you are uncertain about any issues, check with your Realtor before releasing any contingencies, if there are any. ... more

Check with your lender to see if they feel comfortable doing that. It may also depend on how you end up taking title with both names under it. I have seen a few instances where the lender has allowed it, but since it's transaction-specific, I would ask your lender if that's ok. Best of luck, Caroline ... more

Sally Grenier answered:
What does your agent say? What does the contract say? I'm sure there's probably a clause in there that talks about what happens if you back out. You'll probaby lose your earnest money and that's about it. But then again...I haven't seen the contract. Nobody on here is a party to the contract, so this isn't the best place to seek advice. You may even want to contact an attorney. ... more

Elite Realty answered:
Home Buyer in Charleston Bay,

It does appear that several units in your community have recently gone on the market. I noticed that most are occupied by the current owner and are NOT short sales. That would most indicate the the current owners are able to sale under current market conditions and possible take advantage of the market, in getting a great deal for a home right now. Several are currently showing active on the market, 3 have recently gone under contract and are scheduled to close with in the next 30 days. Not sure if you are looking to sell right now but one unit did sale in Charleston Bay this month, for 72k. Hope I answered your question. Please feel free to call my office Elite Realty Group 770-305-7934. Our office has several agents and brokers on hand to answer any of your home buying/selling questions. We also provide premier property management services.

Absolutely not. If you buy a bank-owned property, you buy it "as is." Just say no ... Julie Montgomery, RE/MAX Masters, Inc., Littleton, CO,

If it is already priced low for the neighborhood and not in need of much repair only upgrading I would take the advice of your agent. Banks are also looking to get the most out of the property they own. ... more

With a quick search on one of our MLS, Rentian, I found 15 listings for rent between $950 -1100. They were all 3 or 4 bedrooms. If you would like for me to send you electronic flyers of these properties, please forward me your email address and I will get them over ASAP. Should you like to see some this week/weekend, please call and I will arrange the viewings. Good Luck!

Richard Malsed answered:
We have a lender that has managed to get short sale sellers into a home within a month or so of closing their short sales. So it is possible. I was talking to him about how he does it, and he said that the seller cannot be behind on the payments, and cannot have been late with any payments. ... more

You start on the 24th. The 24th is Day 1 of your 21 days. If you went Binding at 11:59pm, you'd lose a day, so you don't count that day :)

Good Luck!!
