I use Fred C Church. I would think any local insurance agent would be able to help you though.

Dale Doughty answered:
Why are you looking for a hard money lender? I think you will have a tough time getting one to help you purchase a single family residence. The laws have changed dramatically from a few years ago and residential financing is now heavily regulated. Hard money loans tend to be high fee, quick exit strategy loans. Under current law the use of such loans are illegal and considered predatory lending by RESPA and several other acts. Hard money lenders are typically only used in the commercial market for developers, small business owners, etc. The commercial lending arena is far less regulated.

If you have a friend or family member that will do a private mortgage for you, such transactions are exempt under RESPA. With the amount of equity you are putting into the deal, it would be a solid loan for someone but a hard money lender couldn't charge you enough legally to make it worth their while.

I hope this helps.

I would be interested in the NH law on that as well. In California all of it is a disclosure requirement.

It sure can. The property will have to be remediated by a mold remediation company. An industrial hygenist will need to inspect the property and give a clean report. The report will have to be given to the property appraiser for financing to continue. ... more

Because the home probably isn't for sale. What you linked to--what you saw--is an ad trying to get you to subscribe to RealtyTrac. There's no address because RealtyTrac wants to charge you for that. And there are no pictures because RealtyTrac has none . . . because the house likely isn't listed.

If you're interested in it, contact a Realtor in your area.

Check your purchase agreement. It's in there.

However, very likely yes. Often, the amount of fuel is calculated and that cost is paid by the buyer.

Now, if it's truly, honestly not in there . . . . then (and I'm not a lawyer so this isn't legal advice) perhaps not. It'd be like buying a house with boxes the seller left in the attic. You're buying the property and everything in it.

But oil in the tank is handled sort of similarly (roughly) to taxes that the seller may have already paid on the property. Let's say the seller paid half a year's property taxes on July 1. At closing, the seller gets reimbursed for the amount of taxes paid that are applicable after your purchase of the house.

So check the contract. And certainly ask your own Realtor. (Uh oh. You DO have your own Realtor, don't you?). Don't rely on the listing agent for such advice.

Hope that helps.

Kevin , Amherst is a nice place to live. Roads here are plowed pretty well in the winter. Amherst to Manchester is about a twenty minute drive. When are you coming for a visit?

You should contact the company that tested the water first,. next contact the state again. Ask for a manager all the way up the chain until you get someone who can help. You also may want to contact an attorney. You have to determine the cause of the contamination, if it was someone other than you, you may have recourse and need legal help. ... more

Hi Joe,
You're not dreaming, it does seem that the prices are higher than they were at the beginning of the summer and definitely than they were 6 months ago! I have noticed this in searching for clients and customers.
My guess is that the cash sale and extreme fixer uppers are now purchased. This cleans the market quite a bit for move in ready, higher priced homes.
I think it is safe to say the worst is behind us with the economy, though I don't want to jinx anything!

Ron Thomas answered:
You are desperate!
Your Credit or Finances, or both, will not allow you to go the conventional route:
You need the Seller to help you out!

The Seller will know it, and you are going to pay dearly for this service:
There aren't too many altruistic Sellers out there.

The terms that can be written into a Lease/Option can be dangerous to you:
How long is the Option period?
How much money are you putting in to the Option?
What happens if you are not able to execute the Option?
How do you know what your financial situation will be 2-5 years from now?
How much is the rent in the meantime?
Who will be responsible for maintenance and repair in the meantime?
What will be the Market Value of the home in 2-5 years?
What will be the Selling price 2-5 years from now?

This is the Ultimate Caveat Emptor!
