Hello,

Thank you for the information and your question, however, I am unclear on precisely what the legal issue is. Are you asking if you can buy the house for cash from this investor, or are you asking if a lender is likely to loan you money for a home purchase of this, or any, house?

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
