Does one have to honor a lease of tenants if a house is sold? For example, lets say I buy a double and want to kick out one of the tenants. Do I have to honor their lease (which is with the previous owners, not me), or can I simply give them 30 days and call it a day?...

Has any one done a "gift-not deposited" for an FHA loan? The instructions appear to be quite convoluted:
1) certified check made to title attorney, and buyers with the "donor" as the remitter
2) proof of money in account --> isn't that what a certified check is for?
3) gift letter (OK)
4) any do...

Anybody know a bank where I can get a mortgage that will allow 10% down on a double? We put in an offer on a house with FHA financing, but they countered with us getting conventional financing. We have the 10% down, but all banks are telling us we need 20%.

Quick question -
I moved from Massachusetts to Louisiana on Feb 1, but continued to work for the Massachusetts company from my home in LA for the next 6 months. I'm a bit confused as to whether I pay MA taxes on this income, or LA taxes.
For what its worth, I'm using turbotax.

Have a few hundred bucks in MCD. Not much going on with this stock over the past year besides a slight downward trend.

Have an old Mercury Mountaineer that runs great besides a squeaky belt. The squeak gets higher and faster as I accelerate, and slower when idle. I know nothing about cars and want to take this to a mechanic to fix. Anyone have any idea as to what I'm looking at out of pocket before I bring this in?
