You are going to have to go section 8 and they tell you exactly how much you can charge. Give the housing authority a call.

Can you use a first home buyers loan to purchase a duplex or more?

I’m looking to buy a home that is subdivided into renting sections such as a duplex or more..then live in part of the duplex and rent the other part to help pay for the loan on the house? If it can be done with the first home buyer loan then my second question is that I’m considering working overseas but still keep my residence as the united states as all my stuff will be in Nebraska and I’ll only be over there for 6 to 8 months at a time so…would it still work considering I still plan on having it as my home? Would the duplex count as a commercial property or residential? Thanks

Administrator answers:

This is actually a very smart plan for your first home purchase and would utilize a normal mortgage. Your insurance may be a bit trickier considering that you won’t be occupying the property the majority of the time, but the duplex would be considered a residential purchase and not an investment property (assuming you are a citizen and have no other residence in the US).

Charles asks…

Can you buy one half of a duplex?

I currently rent a 2 bedroom duplex. I’ve been there for almost two years and I like it very much. I’ve heard of rent -to- own homes, but can you do the same with a duplex. Or would you have to buy the whole thing, I’m not to interested in being a landlord.

Administrator answers:

It can be done. Mostly this would depend on the legal description down at the county where the property is located. If it has been split before purchasing 1/2 of the duplex would be easy otherwise you will need to get a survey done and refile the legal description at the county. You would also need to have an agreement with the owners of the other half of the house regarding maintenance of the wall you share. The biggest issue you face is does you landlord want to sell to you.

Donald asks…

I just move in to a duplex. My neighbors side caught on fire. Do I get my deposit and rent back? ?

I also want to ask do my landlord take responsibility for the damage to my stuff?

Administrator answers:

Your insurance company will give you a place to live temporarily till the home is livable and as for damage, your insurance company will handle this and then they will get the money back from your neighbours insurance company..basically your neighbours insurance will end up paying for your content damage…the landlord is only liable to fix up the dwelling with his renter insurance.
