I saw an online guru say you can find home sellers buyers

Hi, I saw an online guru say you can find home sellers buyers who have bad credit or no down payment and negotiate a lease option fee where they could buy the property after some time with you collecting a fee. Is that legal or even doable?Thanks in advanceDevin

According to the Apartment Owners Association, a resident

according to the Apartment Owners Association, a resident manager of an apartment building has to have a signed employment agreement, they are employees not contractors, and cannot pay above a certain amount of rent.I own two duplexes on a street that has 20 buildings, mostly duplexes and one 3plex, with all buildings owned by 6 owners. There is a filed maintenance agreement with the county that stipulates that all owners will split common costs like our two water wells, the streetlights and sewer and main road repairs. the agreement states it runs with the land, so all (new) owners have to abide by it or change it with 51% of the owners agreeing to do that.There is a couple who have lived there for more than 20 years and "manage" the properties, taking rent to the bank for some owners but not all, making sure the wells stay in good repair, etc. It says in our maintenance agreement the "manager" is to receive no compensation unless we as owners change that. we do reimburse the managers for any expenses they incur.and since I purchased the duplexes in fall 2014 I've paid a small part of these managers' rent. paying part of their rent is written down nowhere.now, we are writing an "employment agreement" for these two managers. Do these 20 separate buildings qualify as an apartment building, so that we can follow the laws pertaining to apartment resident managers??Thanks, ***** ***** Maxwell

I'm Jessica. I'm from West Virginia. In 2008 my mom started

Hello I'm Jessica. I'm from West Virginia. In 2008 my mom started a rent to own with a friend. She payed the bank until 2013 and she had herself and I on the deed. The deed stated that the land and a trailer on the property was ours. She past away and I became soul owner. Fast forward to present day. My husband and I want to use the trailer as a trade in on a new double wide and was told I needed a title. So we contacted the guy my mom bought it from and he said he never had one and gave us a number for the guy he bought it from. He didn't have it and gave us the # ***** the owner before that. Anyway we go back 25yrs worth of owners and call the DMV. We relay all of the above to them. We had all the names on the title correct except one. The title is active in someone else's name they can't say who. So we call around again. The other past owners all have no idea who'd be on it as it was sold to the guy we bought it off of. Who btw isn't even registered on the title. We were going to do a message forward but the DMV said if no one answered the message then there was nothing else we could do. We did happen to get the town the person lives in after the 7th call. The person lives in the same town we do. Its active so that means someone is paying taxes on it and as property so am I lol. I REALLY need that title. Please is there any way to do this??

I have a rental property, which I rented out to a tenant. The

I have a rental property, which I rented out to a tenant. The lease is one year and ends September 1st 2016. There is no clause for the tenant to be able to terminate the lease early. The tenant purchased a home in April and wrote me an email stating he would like to terminate the contract as of May 1st 2016, he will be moved out on that day to his newly purchased home. I called to discuss this with the tenant and left him a message that unfortunately I was not planning to rent the property out as I planned to move back in it myself after their lease was up on Sept 1st.I also mentioned that I could prorate their rent if I could move back in the property prior to Sept 1st and would stay in touch, call back please let's discuss. Also please let me know when they have vacated the property, so I could check on the property.No return phone no return text no emails.No communication from them what so ever. Completely ignoring all my attempts to talk to them regarding the vacated property. My neighbor informed me that they moved out 2nd week in April. I received the rent payment for May 1st, so they are paid up through June 1st. I feel like they left angry or annoyed because I wouldn't terminate their rental lease.What are my rights? Can I change locks if it is vacant, can I turn off the water main line since it is vacant. I gave them 4 days notice that I would be visiting the property tomorrow.No response.
