Housing

What is housing discrimination?

Housing discrimination is discrimination against any person seeking to rent a home or to purchase a home or to secure financing for a home or to sell a home on the basis of their race, color, national origin, religion, sex, family status, or mental or physical disability.

Under Arizona law, the presence of bedbugs in a hotel or other place where sleeping accommodations are offered to the public is considered to be a public nuisance which is dangerous to the public health. Any person who maintains such a nuisance will be served with an order requiring that they remove the bedbugs immediately (A.R.S. § 36-601(A)).

We have all seen famous actors on television advertising reverse mortgages and talking about how they provide seniors with a stream of income for their old age by tapping into the equity in their homes.  It sounds great!  But is it?  While there may be real benefits for some people, reverse mortgages come with high costs and other serious drawbacks you need to consider.  The more you know about reverse mortgages, the better equipped you will be to make a sound financial decision about something as important as your home.

After a foreclosure is complete and the home is sold, a borrower may still owe money if the sale price of the house was not large enough to cover the amount owed on the loan, this is called a deficiency.  In many cases borrowers are protected from a deficiency by Arizona’s anti-deficiency statutes, which prevent lenders from pursuing the borrower if the home is sold for less than the total owed on the home loan.
