    My fiance found a house she really likes, but it was built in 1930. I liked the house as well, but she is highly worried about asbestos in older homes. The house fits our needs, and is in our budget. I told her it should be fine, but she won't stop worrying about it, and if we choose to get the house she wants to have extra testing done on it. I think it's a waste of time, and money. She is extra worried about living in a house that contains any sort of asbestos is because her mom passed away of lung cancer, as her uncle. Her mom died in her early 60s and apparently her uncle died in his early ot middle 40s. I tired to tell her she will be fine, and it has to be air bone, but she doesn't care. She doesn't want to put her self as the "extra risk" I don't think it's that big of a deal, but she just seems to get upset with me, and thinks I'm being insensitive

  • I am buying my mothers home from a reverse mortgage. What happens to her if I die?

    Best answer: So, your mom took out a reverse mortgage, but you want to pay it off now. If you die, the home will be dealt with per the terms of your will. You could technically try to give it back to her, your spouse or kids (assuming) could be granted the property (without estate tax implications in most cases) and let her... show more

  • I want to know can a landlord tell a tenant what he/she can and can't wear?

    Best answer: Depends. Inside your unit no. Outside your unit in the "common" areas - yes. I live in an 8 story building; we cannot wear night clothes outside our apartments. If we want to get our mail, take the trash out or whatever we must be dressed appropriately - by that I mean private body parts... show more

If we want to get our mail, take the trash out or whatever we must be dressed appropriately - by that I mean private body parts covered.

    They want a better class of people where I live (as evidenced by the appearance and all the money they've sunk into landscaping, the lobby, new roof, etc - not to mention high rents). Looking like trailer trash discourages people from renting here.

    My husband and I rent our studio basement to a female professional. A few months ago in the summer, we noticed that she would go to work in the morning leaving the AC running the whole day in full blast (cold air would come through our utility room up to the staircase). We communicated to her our concern in saving energy and that instead of having the AC on the whole day, we would set up the temperature automatically at a level that would be comfortable for her. She was fine and we had no issues after that. Today, she informed me that she was having having a fan installed in the studio. That 's fine with us. My only concern is her leaving the fan on again the whole day. Do we just tell her straight that the ceiling fan must be turned off when she is not home? Utilities are already included in the rent amount.

    Having inspection done this coming Saturday for a house that is being sold "As Is". It's obvious the roof needs some repairing and some of the electrical outlets aren't grounded and there may be some other damage we don't know about. This is our first house, so just curious, would seller's normally agree to negotiate and work out a deal to take, say $5,000 off of closing costs if there are some serious issues? Or would they not even bother and usually just kill the deal because they are strictly selling it "As Is" after all? I mean, based on your experiences...generally speaking here? Thanks

    My husband and I have a roommate who has recently been causing numerous problems. He has broken the lease agreement by smoking in the house, he has brought illegal substances into our home, he has hit our animals without reason, he’s causing issues with our neighbors, stealing from stores and he has caused property damage that could cause us to lose our deposit (which he did not pay in the first place). We have spoken to him about these things but it hasn’t changed any of the behavior. We would like to speak to our landlord about these issues to see what can be done but we don’t want to be put in a position where we are forced to leave as well. I really need some advice on what to do.

  • How do I explain to a landlord that takes section 8 about section 8?

    Best answer: If he is a Section 8 landlord, he had to sign up and must be informed about the rules already. If you mean he is willing to take your voucher but not in the program, he has to get approved by Housing Authority before he can take a voucher. Just tell him he is guaranteed to get most of the rent by the county and... show more
    Best answer: If he is a Section 8 landlord, he had to sign up and must be informed about the rules already. If you mean he is willing to take your voucher but not in the program, he has to get approved by Housing Authority before he can take a voucher. Just tell him he is guaranteed to get most of the rent by the county and you pay the remainder to him. The balance depends on your income. You pay around 33% of it for rent.
