House Calls: For Sale Two Years


Edith: The house across the street has had the same for-sale sign up for over two years. I would think that the Realtor would want the sign taken down, as it seems to imply that he can't sell houses. Isn't there a time limit of expectations for ...

House Calls: Lawyer's Advice


Edith: You wrote that it would be "simplest" for the reader to contact an attorney to see whether a deed had been recorded. Perhaps, but it may also be more expensive. It could be simple for the reader to go to the county or some other appropriate...

House Calls: Deducting Interest


Dear Edith: A reader recently asked you about the value of having a mortgage so she could deduct the interest. I was disappointed that you didn't point out the folly of paying a bank $4 just to avoid paying the government $1. (Obviously, the ...

Buying at 70


Dear Edith: What do you think of an older person buying a house or a condo? I'll be 70 this year. I am single, and I have excellent credit. I've been looking for an apartment, and landlords seem to really jack up the prices, at lease this time of ...

House Calls: Proof of Ownership


Dear Edith: I read your column faithfully but don't recall seeing my question in print. In 1970, my husband and I had a modest home built on an acre of land. It was given to us by his parents (who are now deceased). In their generosity, they held...

House Calls: Buyers Make Value


Dear Ms. Lank: My wife and I reside on a farm. The county full value assessment on our home and farm is $446,000. We are in our 80s and do not have children interested in the property. Since maintenance may soon exceed our abilities, we will ...

House Calls: Shady Broker's Ponytail


Ms. Lank: I read your article about a couple trying to sell their house. Here's what happened to us. Before we moved to our retirement home late last year, we placed our house on the market more than a year before with a broker. This agent wasted...

House Calls: 4 Inches of Trouble


Dear Mrs. Lank: Several years ago, my neighbor had a survey done before she put up a partial fence on her land. She had her son dig a trench adjacent to a cedar fence I had installed in 1978. It looked as if it her trench was on my property, so I ...

House Calls: Worried About an LLC?


Ms. Lank: I have a question about limited liability company properties, or LLC properties. My neighbor moved out, and I saw a "sold" sign on his house. He happened to stop by this past week, and I asked him who my new neighbors would be. He said...

House Calls: How to Discriminate


Hi, Edith: I was a newspaper copy editor for nearly 20 years, and I faithfully edited your column for my paper. But even after all those years of reading your column each week, I need a little help. I own a duplex, and I live in one side and ...
