>>>>Did you ever check this guy’s credit out before letting him have the property? Or did you just assume it will work out because he’s a mortgage broker?>>>
You are right, I assumed it would work out because he was a mortgage broker.
>>>>>As far as it stands right now, his lease and option expire at the end of Feb. I would send written notice that his lease is up and his option expires on the 28th of Feb, 2002. That you will NOT be renewing his lease or option because of his consistant paying rent late. So unless he intends to exercise his option to buy and can close by the 28th of Feb, 2002…he is to be vacated from the premises by midnight, the 28th of Feb, 2002.
Unless he’s late on the rent right now, then you can’t start any eviction process until after the lease expires and he hasn’t moved out. If he’s late right now then serve proper notice to pay or quit. Then if he hasn’t paid by the end of his pay or quit notice, then follow through with filing the eviction!>>>>>>
I don’t understand- Are you saying if is or is not behind on his rent I have to wait until his lease expires?
>>>>BTW…is that purchase price including his $4000 option money being deducted already or would that be deducted from the $113k?>>>>>> It would be deducted from the 113K
>>>>Do you have any other properties to L/O with that much equity involved going to the tenant/buyer? :)>>>>
Yes as matter of fact I do :). The reason the property has so much equity is I bought it as a foreclosure for 82K and did not spend a dime to rehab, the TB has rehabbed it. If I would have rehabed it a year ago, it would have been worth @120k with about 15K of work. It is also in an area that has taken off in the last 9 months, after averaging about 4% appreciation a year for the last 5 years.
I am not trying to be a charity, but I am fortunate enough financially that I can be flexible. It was not that long ago that I was in the same situation as my TB. That is why I have offered to be flexible. But, if he is unwilling to cooperate or continues to stick his head in the sand, I do not want to sit back and be taken advantage of either.
Thanks again for you replies.
