Sue Vaterlaus answered:
The problem is there are almost no available rentals at this time. There are so many people who want to rent that the owners can be picky about who rents their homes. I personally am pet friendly in my own rental. What you find with pet owners is that they usually stay in the house longer because it is so hard to find rentals that take pets. I have encourage many of my property management owners to put pergo instead of carpets and rent to pet owners. Some have doen it, some will not. Good luck in your search, we have no rentals in Pacifica in our office at this time. ... more

Yes, they can. My understanding of the current law is that they have to disclosure the pre-forclosure to the tenant. But other than that - no limitations.

Try to meet with them on the property. If they refuse - it is a scam. Also, any realtor can check the county records in matter of minutes to verify the owner names.

Start looking. Most of the rentals are posted on craigslist. There is housing shortage in our area so make sure to look for newer postings and respond fast.

You should totally be able to find that! In fact, I'd check Craigslist for Woodside, Atherton and Potola Valley. This might sound crazy, but there are a lot of wealthy folks out there with really big homes that will often rent out an in-law suite to the tune of $1000-$2000 a month.

If that's too far out of the way, try Belmont in the Sterling Downs neighborhood. There are a ton of duplexes in there. One side typically has 2br/1ba and they were going for about $1500 last time I checked.

Hope this helps. If you need more active assistance, just let me know.
