In NYC your biggest issue is working off the books. You will need a letter from your employer that you work there and how much your income is. The other issue is Brooklyn is very expensive and you won't find a 2 bedroom apartment for $1800. or less. You can try in Bedford Stuyvesant, East NY or Flatbush. However, you need to take the subway up to the Bronx. You will have much better luck in the Bronx. ... more

Hello Walterlop, that would be legal advice which we can not give you. You should consult with the Inland Mediation Board of Los Angeles and they can answer and advise you. They are a free legal advice service for tenant and landlord disputes. Here is their website to call and keep us posted as to what they say and the outcome.

Hello Wanda, any day of the week is probably better than the weekend when everyone is looking. You did not mention the number of bedrooms, baths and the maximum payment you are looking to achieve?

If you figure out what cities/zip codes you are considering, minimum number of bedrooms and the maximum payment/price you are looking to achieve any agent can email listings to fit your search criteria. Your email address is needed to set you up for the automatic daily updates.

The rentals in 92505 zip code of Riverside start from $1,350 for 2bd 1.5ba townhome and single family homes from $1,900 for 3bd 2ba home. The purchase in 92505 zip code start from 165k for 1bd 1ba condo and the single family homes start from 260k for 3bd 1ba home.

You should study RENT vs BUY options as you may qualify to buy with minimal out of pocket expenses and pay about the same as rent with down payment and closing cost assistance programs.

Joegrady answered:
Usually, when signing for 12 months, you are responsible for all 12 months. I asked this exact question of a prospective landlord, and he said that I would be responsible for all 12, or until he got a new tenant. For instance, if I decided to leave after 6 months, and he rented it right away, I wouldn't owe him anything more. But If it takes him another 2 months to get another tenant in, I'd have to pay for those two months I didn't use it. Hope this helps you. ... more

Jkaris answered:
In general where there is a strong rental market, there are many renters and not as many rentals, the rents will rise, following the laws of "supply and demand". Also there is no incentive for landlords to update because "it will rent anyway". Rental homes are typically in busier locations and have less desirable forms of heating systems. Consequently they have a lower value as a single family home and therefore lower acquisistion cost for an investor purchasing rentals. ... more
