Becoming a Landlord Counseling

You have applied for a mortgage loan to finance the purchase of a mulit-unit home (duplex, tri-plex or four-plex). If you will be renting out units to others, you'll be taking on the role of "landlord." You will be a special type of real estate professional, entitled not only to collecting rent, but also to enjoying certain tax advantages and selecting some of the people who'll live side by side with you. Owning a multi-unit home is rewarding but also requires many responsibilities. Our Becoming a Landlord Counseling helps you understand the risks and responsibilities involved in the business of being a landlord. The nonrefundable cost for this counseling is $125 per session.
