Don Tepper answered:
She should call the police.

If he's not on the lease, he's not a tenant, and thus can't be evicted. But if your sister wants the guy to leave and he won't, then he's trespassing.

Hope that helps. ... more

Please be aware that if she has a lease, the lease supercedes the sale. Either the landlord or the new owner may have to "buy" her out of the lease...

Hi Jessica,

These are the most desirables areas in the Bronx:
Country Club
Throgs Neck
Pelham Bay
Pelham Gardens
Pelham Pkwy

They are increasing in popularity since the demand for rental in these areas is high.

I get a phone call like this almost everyday and my answer unfortunately is always the same, I can not take them on as a client if they have less than stellar credit because it is just a waste of time. With the market being so aggressive, very few are willing to even entertain the idea of bad credit, because chances are, if they wait a few weeks, they will find someone with good credit for their rental. ... more

Ines,
There are terrific things to do in the Bronx. The Bronx Zoo, the Botanic Gardens, Wave Hill, enjoying Van Cortlandt Park, and of course Yankee Stadium are just a few.

It will depend on how much of a commute you want to have Ulster County offers many hiking and climbing opportunities I am assuming you want to be near the mountains for those purposes.

You would have access to trains from Poughkeepsie. If you are in the southern end of Ulster you could get the Train in Beacon.

Dear Eddie:

There are so many factors that come into play it is difficult to answer this question in this forum. I suggest you contact an architect and a real estate attorney in Brooklyn and explain what you are looking to do. You will then be able to get an estimate of how much it would cost and the effort it would entail. Usually you can get some sort of estimate/info with the initial phone call and it will not cost you anything. If I can be of further assistance, please let me know. Good luck!

A less than desirable credit score, from my observation, is the biggest problem for agents helping renters find a home.

They are actually not sold only to companies. To be honest, I would advise going outside of new york. You can purchase tax liens out state. Rates and rules are better outside of NY. They are typically held at either in person or online auctions and individuals can bid and purchase them. Good luck! ... more

There real questions should be "What's Brooklyn not known for?"

You name it, we have it, theaters, landmarks amustment, shopping,ect.
New Yorker Magazine called Brooklyn "The New Manhattan".
In my personal opinion, we had them beat a long time ago...
It's just that nobody notced till now.

Dear Alison:

Just like what you see in the movies, especially the ones that date back to the 70's. There is never a dull moment and everything goes fast fast fast. Brooklyn has more character than any other place and so do the people who live in the borough. If you can make it here you can make it anywhere and like they say, only the strong survive, and I mean that in a good way.

I am born, bred and raised in Brooklyn, a product of the public school system in Brooklyn and I currently work and live in Brooklyn. There ain't no place like Brooklyn! The borough is so diverse you can spend a lifetime taking it all in. This is why Brooklyn has one of the best real estate markets in the country as well.
