JAKD might be for sale

First this isn't a joke...I would never joke about something like this.

If you guys know anyone in the area looking for a truck like mine please let me know.

Here is the situation:

As you guys know, I'm in the military. I'm currently renting a house in Yorktown. Last night one of our neighbors came over and asked if we were moving. We said "no" why do you ask? To make a long story short our landlord put the house back up on the market to rent when our lease expires at the end of May. We emailed and tried to call in an effort to find out what was going on. There is absolutely no reason for them to not offer to renew our lease. Legally they are only obligated to give us 30 days notice (lease expires end of May). Then we are out on the street. The military does not pay to move you unless you have orders for a change of station. What this means is that I will have to move myself, and coming off two back surgeries, I'm not going to be much good. So we are going to have to hire movers to move the big stuff (we have over 14000 lbs of household goods). I finally got a hold of the husband who acted like he didn't know what was going on and he said he would have to talk to his wife. His wife basically runs all the properties that they own and was told that they would get back to us this weekend. I made it clear that if the purpose was to increase the rent...that it would not be a problem...but have yet to hear anything back. The reason I am so worried about this situation is because we were warned by our neighbors when we moved in that they have screwed every tenant that have lived in this house. I could go on and on about what they told us, but it's not relevant to the current situation. The current situation is that we could be put out with only 30 days notice to find a new house and move ourselves.

I don't care about myself....I care about my kids, they have close friends in this neighborhood and they love their school. So moving out of the immediate area is not an option. I need to start planning for the worst case scenario and start looking for another house. I have found two houses for sale in the neighborhood (no rentals) that will allow them to attend their current school. I already have a VA loan on a house that I own in another location (which I rent out). This means I need to get a regular mortgage on a second house and need to put 5% down. In order to be able to put 5% down and pay for closing costs, I'll have to sell my truck and cash in on some investments and take a big hit. I planned on retiring soon anyway and stay in the area (lots of jobs for retired military with my specialty in this area). I think these landlords make their money by keeping people's deposits.

So if anyone knows anyone in the area that might want my truck, please let me know. It hurts to have to do this, but my kids come first.

Thanks for looking.

That sucks man... Just FYI, run of the mill housing loans are lower than what the VA can get you right now. Biggest difference is the zero money down requirement. Good luck.

wow what a messed up situation. how bout renting a apartment for the meantime? that way you can keep your truck. as far as the move goes, im sure some fellow org members in your area would help out so you dont have to pay movers.
gotta be careful about landlords. i heard now what there doing is renting you the house with option to buy. once you start making payments and think its coming off the mortgage, they foreclose on the house without you knowing. so all that money you put up front and paid on is history. hope everything works out for you guys. my prayers are with you.

Hey guys,

Some good news...the landlords finally contacted us and gave us the option to renew with an increase in rent. This will give us some breathing room to get finances in order for next year by freeing up my VA loan on the other house we own...and shop for nice house in this area. I really appreciate all the genuine support from everyone....your a good bunch of dudes.

My next mission is to get JAKD clean and hit some shows

Kevin
