NO $$ down, no credit check... the guy bought it at an auction for not much.&nbsp; Sight unseen.&nbsp; My fiancee and I had met the man previously because he did owner finance/rent to own .&nbsp; So when he called and said he had a house fitting our needs, we went to look at it.&nbsp; It needed a TON of work, he said it probably would. It was inhabiltable for the first 30 days at least..redid pipes wires, walls, everything!&nbsp; It was part of the agreement. We got 6 months no payments for doing the work to the house.payments are 598.00/mo including ins and taxes. He hadn't even seen it yet.&nbsp; He rushed us to sign papers in two days.&nbsp; He didn't even background check us or anything and he let me change a couple of things in the contract.&nbsp; Well, we got behind from expenses incurred. He let my fiancee work on other properties and a car, the money earned came straight off the house payment.&nbsp; No cash to be exchanged.&nbsp; He started threatening eviction last June.&nbsp; My fiancee was not able to do much work for him because we could never get ahold of him. he sent papers to his lawyer im Feb and they emailed me a notice of termination of agreement-gave us until&nbsp; 4.1.14 to leave. Did not ask for $. We are behind about 1900 right now, but have been paying anything we can whenever on the past due+ monthly $.&nbsp; He kept letting it slide before-adding it on to the end. We have paid 4-5 months out of the 16 we lived here.6 were free-some were moved to the end-we did not get a notice through cert. mail or personal delivery.&nbsp; No notice was posted on the property even though his lawyer told me he said he posted one himself.He didnt-the word eviction hasn't been used. He terminated the agreement. thats all. no option to pay. nothing. Well, it's 4.14.&nbsp; we have been paying.&nbsp; We didnt leave.<br \><br \>3 replies Mon, 14 Apr 2014 05:20:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Purchase-agreement-owner-finance-rent-to-own-owner-financer-backing-out/536346/ 2014-04-14T05:20:00Z Someone tried to do a craigslist scam with one of my listings http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Someone-tried-to-do-a-craigslist-scam-with-one-of-my-listings/458010/ I had a dozen people call me about a listing that I have for sale in St Louis MO. Someone took my photos from what ever search site that they were using and made a craigslist add for rent It was for $400. a month, keep in mind a 2 to 3 bedroom home for rent in St Louis County goes for no less than $1,000 a month. This person claimed to be doing missionary work in nigeria and said to ignore the for sale sign in the yard and do not contact the Realtor for anything. He wanted them to wire $800.00&nbsp; to him and fill out a bogus lease, he would then mail them the keys. I personally responded to his add and got the same reply. I do&nbsp;wonder if anyone fell for his scam. I flagged his post as quick as I could. The old saying is right, If sounds to good to be true, It propably is.... Rent for $400 in $1,000 or higher market... is to good to be true...<br/>Kevin Patrick Lemons&nbsp; <em>(hotlink deleted by Zillow moderator. please see our Good Neighbor Policy for posting guidelines]</em><br/>.<br \><br \>7 replies Thu, 30 Aug 2012 21:41:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Someone-tried-to-do-a-craigslist-scam-with-one-of-my-listings/458010/ 2012-08-30T21:41:00Z I have a NECAC voucher for $700 a month for 3 bedrooms. http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/I-have-a-NECAC-voucher-for-700-a-month-for-3-bedrooms/535191/ I need somthing pretty quickly and am having trouble finding anything.&nbsp; Should I contact an agent or what?&nbsp; I have a full time job at Scottrade and am very neat and tidy but my credit is not too good.&nbsp; Please help me!&nbsp; I don't want to be homeless with 2 children!&nbsp; If someone could call me at 636-627-9198 for ligitimate offers only please!<br \><br \>0 replies Fri, 04 Apr 2014 22:11:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/I-have-a-NECAC-voucher-for-700-a-month-for-3-bedrooms/535191/ 2014-04-04T22:11:00Z how to put in a application for rent? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/how-to-put-in-a-application-for-rent/533935/ i've been looking for the rental application and i can't find it on the site. where can i find it at?<br \><br \>1 reply Wed, 26 Mar 2014 21:30:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/how-to-put-in-a-application-for-rent/533935/ 2014-03-26T21:30:00Z NO PETS? Really? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/NO-PETS-Really/530497/ I just wrote a very long e-mail about this subject. I get so frustrated when I am dismissed from a property because I have pets. I do believe that there are irresponsible owners who have pets that may do damage. I am not one of them. If your owners, property managers and agents knew how to identify a responsible pet owner, they'd increase their client bases, and perhaps learn a few things along the way. I wouldn't want to live in a home where I smell cat urine or feces. I wouldn't want to smell the septic system either. For my animals, it's simple - the right litter in the right amount, one box/cat plus one (I have four), I scoop EVERY DAY and change out once/week. Guess what? No smell, and no one ever goes anywhere, except the boxes. I could go on, and on, but I'll drop it for now.
