• How do I move out at 18 and in high school?

    I know just how crazy that sounds and I know that making ends meet is gonna be a possibly hopeless endeavor. I live in a household with opposing views to my own and it's difficult pretending to be someone I am not. I don't believe my household will be a very peaceful place once I convey my beliefs, so I want to move out just to conserve whatever peace I can. That's all very vague, but essentially I want to be honest with my parents, I just know they're not going to be accepting of it and I don't want to be around to see their disappointment and question where they went wrong. It's not a vengeful move, it's more of an attempt to preserve my mental health (which I might mess up, even more, putting myself in this situation. I'll never know if I don't try). So I'm sorry for rambling, but essentially I do not have the first clue on how to do this, I really want to though. Apartment renting is my first concern and knowing if my job is stable or not...

  • Rent is ridiculously expensive in and around my city. Are there programs to help you subsidize and afford rent prices?

    I am 31 years old, single, and live in my family home. Before you judge me, I chose to live with parents because my mother is extremely ill and needed my constant attention at home.

    I am 31 years old, single, and live in my family home. Before you judge me, I chose to live with parents because my mother is extremely ill and needed my constant attention at home. Now that I'm getting older, my aunt has decided to take over and live in our home as well. After researching rent prices, I find them beyond my budget. A simple one-story apartment in my city costs almost $800. With my car note, health insurance, car insurance, and high student loan payments......it is almost impossible to afford that unless I date and become serious with someone who will share the cost. I am happily single and want to stay that way. Are there any programs out there can help lower or subsize rent costs?

    My daughter, 19 yr old student, signed a lease agreement on Dec 2017 with an Apartment to move in on August 2018 (Fall 2018). Since she had no income, I was asked to co-sign the lease. I had no problem except when they asked my SS#, DOB in addition to income, employment, etc. I refused to give my SS# or DOB due to identification theft. They asked my daughter to find a new tenant to assign her lease. She did find one and a new student signed the lease assignment sometime in Jan 2018, Since she also had no income, she had to ask her parents to co-sign the lease, Apartment says lease can not be transferred until new tenant gets her parents co-sign the lease. Can Apartment say that after new student signed the lease assignment? I did not sign my daughter’s lease either, Why she was obligated to assign her lease? What happens when parents of new assignee does not sign the lease? Will my daughter still be liable for the lease and not the new assignee? Move in date is in August 2018, 8 months later.

  • My landlord wants me to move out so his mother can move in. We have 7 more months on my lease?

    I offered to move out early for $2000 to help with my next deposit moving etc. But he doesn't want to give me anything. Do you think my offer is fair? Moving is a hassle and can be expensive.

Long story short my parents want me to move out due to family issues we've had. I barely have any money in my saving account and I don't even know if i can afford to pay rent and food. Does that mean I have to become a part time college student and do full time low wage job?

  • How do I kick out an occupant on my lease when I am the lease holder?

    Best answer: if mom is a SIGNATORY on the lease and meets her obligations financially, you are probably STUCK with her until the lease expires. Then you could refuse to renew her.

    My fiance doesn't want to live where she used to live! It close to my work, and in a good safe area, and you have many conveniences, but she doesn't want to live there anymore because of traffic, taxes. She says taxes are high, and they only keep going higher. We did look at a 3bed, 3 bath condo. Taxes where just under 3200, and didn't like it because it didn't have a yard what so ever, but I liked it. It was 1680 st, and she didn't like How you had to walk up. Some stairs to get the main level once you walked into the house . We looked at a house for a yard for her, but she didn't like that, but it had her yard. It was rather small only 720 sq ft. It had 2 bedrooms, and 1 bath. No basement. Taxes on that are only 3370. She doesn't like it because it needs a lot of work, and there's no basement. Its just on a slab. She also claims its just a matter of time before they build their own high school because its a growing area with to mamy people. She says they already have three elementary schools, and they had to make a new school as well because the Middle School wasn't big enough. But I keep telling her I think it will be okay they haven't built a high school yet, and they're just going to send the kids to the two bigger towns and not going to change, but her argument is they are growing too, and it sucks waiting for 20 some cars to pass just to make a turn. Where she was to live is 35-45 min drive from my job, and 25 from her work. But its boring there. Advice please?

  • LEASE: Question - Do I really owe more money?

    Best answer: You owe rent thru the end of the lease. Look at the lease carefully and it may say (at least mine do) that you owe 12 monthly payments of $455 but in a seperate section it also adds that you additionally owe a partial monthly payment for the period 1/7/17-1/31/17.

    Best answer: You owe rent thru the end of the lease. Look at the lease carefully and it may say (at least mine do) that you owe 12 monthly payments of $455 but in a seperate section it also adds that you additionally owe a partial monthly payment for the period 1/7/17-1/31/17.

    If the lease truly says that you only owe the 12 monthly payments (in which case it was probably filled out incorrectly) then you might have a case but I would need to see the lease to say for sure.

    But unless the guy who filled out the lease with you just completely messed up, I suspect somewhere in the lease is something about owing prorated rent for the first month and that is why the total is more than the 12 monthly payments.

    Best answer: All rental income is considered income and must be reported as such on your federal income forms.

    Individuals do not purchase a house with the intention of renting out rooms to others and family members.

    Renting to family and friends is strictly a "NO NO" there are too many problems in being a landlord to others, especially family and friends.

    Family and friends feel entitled and, at times, would not pay what is owed, based on the fact that this is my family member or friend they would understand, I will purchase these $75.00 sneakers. I will purchase a car, but I will not pay my rent, because my car payment is $250 per month. I do not earn enough to pay the car note and the rent.

    The best way to deal with this situation is not become a landlord in your own home. You are asking for trouble, both financially and personal. Your having relatives and friends as tenants could be a disaster.

    If you are adamant about renting to anyone to include family and friends, it would be to your benefit to have a written lease agreement that spell out the rent each would be required to pay, other terms of the agreement. You would need to address the situation of guest as to if they would e allowed to stay over night and if they are how many days. You would need to address a situation that might arise where one of the tenants would want to add another person.to the mix. You would also want to address the cooking arrangements and if each person would be responsible for their own food preparation or would there be one person in charge of food preparation.

    You would want to mention penalties for not paying the rent on time and what these financial penalties are. Are the utilities included in the rent or would these debts be equally divided each month based on the amount of the utility bill.

    If you are not currently able to apply for and be approved for a mortgage loan, perhaps you would want to wait until you are able to be approved for a mortgage loan.

    You would be approved for a mortgage loan amount based on your debt ratio. If you are not approved where you would have a sufficient amount to purchase a 3 bedroom house. If you are not approved for the amount necessary to purchase a 3 bedroom house in a decent area, that is not crime ridden.

    If you are planning to use any potential income from rent, to be approved for a mortgage loan you are not able to use this potential rental income at all.

    I hope this has been of some benefit to you, good luck.

  • In the UK is it true that some mortgages are void due to the banks failing to change the wording on mortgage offers post 1989?

I sent a copy to them and they said that the bank had failed to change the wording in line with changes that had happened in 1989. This essentially makes it void and I am due money back. Clearly they are going to take a few for the service. But has anyone come across this? Is it a scam? All I understand is that it’s technical jargon that the average joe wouldn’t even realise and solicitors wouldn’t really check for it if you buy a house. Is there anything in this?
