Legal Answers
Q. Should disclosure documents be excluded from the sale agreement to get a loan?
A: If the transaction qualifies under California law to require a TDS, the requirement cannot be waived. A loan application generally does not require these documents. This does not sound like a legitimate request. You should consult with a California real estate attorney.
Q. Can you change title names on home while on SSI?
A: There is no restriction on changing title, but it may affect your SSI eligibility. You may need to consult with an attorney.
Q. Can I hire someone to be my tenants new point person? I'm the landlord, but find them infuriating to deal with.
A: You could hire someone as a property manager; this is a common practice with rental properties. Once the tenants are properly notified, the manager may step in and handle the situation.
