My brother would like to purchase the home he now lives in.

My brother would like to purchase the home he now lives in. He feels that he would be able to pay for a down payment and manage monthly mortgage payments and taxes, but due to a debt he owes to the IRS and poor credit, he feels that he would be unable to secure a mortgage on his own. He asked for my help in 1) either co-signing a mortgage with him (which I am concerned about in case the IRS takes the home as payment and I am stuck paying the mortgage anyway with no asset) or else 2) for me to take out the mortgage in my own name and have him pay all the bills. If I take out the mortgage and he lives in the home, would I have to take out a commercial mortgage since I would be "renting" it to him?...or is there a provision with a close family member where I could take out a conventional mortgage, and have him pay the bills and live in the home? Trying to help him out without paying a really high mortgage rate and/or incurring major risk....thanks so much!!

I am trying to rent a home in a senior community, n Walnut

My name is***** am trying to rent a home in a senior community, n Walnut ca. I am 63 years old.. I don't have funds for a home without the help of being a senior.. I was turned away as I have a downsyndrone son of age 27. And told when he turns 45, then I could be considered.. When he turns 45. I'll be 81.. I've fought cancer twice and not in great health. If I have to wait 18 years from now. I'll be dead. I can't believe all my rights as a senior living in a safe community are taken away just because I choose to keep my disable son. My son is in a day program 5 days a week and on Sunday's we are at church for 6 hrs. Serving. He's a very quite and respectful son. What can I do to be in a senior community without giving up my disable son.

I am on the board of a very small condo complex (16 units)

I am on the board of a very small condo complex (16 units) There are 32 parking spaces and each unit is assigned 2 spots. Recently the property manager discovered that the original development plans showed two handicapped spots that were long ago converted to residents use. He now claims that the spots have to be put back as original. There is not enough room to replace them and each owner is entitled to the lost spaces. I think it may have been allowed to be removed and/or changed over the years. I am not sure that this information is correct. Who would we contact for absolute confirmation on this opinion?
