    I am a first time home buying in contract for a home being sold "as-is" at listing price (with other negotiations). The disclosure alluding to nothing knowingly being wrong with anything major in the home. There were things that I would take on as projects--but most of those were purely cosmetic or had to do with other things on the property. Upon inspection, however, it was found that every single mechanical of the home would need completely tore out and redone due to very poor (and illegal) jobs in the past, that are now threatening whether the home will even be there tomorrow. I m talking scary things like old live wires not being properly terminated or new ones installed, a new ceiling built under an old ceiling under the upstairs bath which has leaks and is rotting the surrounding wood, water pipes being installed THROUGH vents, and the list goes on. It seems like one big fire hazard and with all the repairs on the mechanicals would cost more than like $25,000 in materials alone. I was okay with a project home--not a money pit with a years worth of work before it s even able to be lived in. What are my options since I am still in the "inspection period" of my contract and I doubt that the buyer will fix these enormous problems? Thank you.

    Here's my dilemma. I had a job interview a couple of weeks ago and then a couple of days after that they told me that they want to hire me. I just have to pass a physical and drug test which I will be taking in the coming days. I am confident that I will pass and that I will get this job. The other thing this will require me to do is move out of state from Illinois to Wisconsin. I want to get an apartment down there before I start the job. My question is how do I show a landlord that I have a job (which would be my proof income) before I even start there. I obviously wouldn't have any pay stubs to show. This will also be my first time getting my own place sense I been living with my parents all of my life. I also have a lot of money in the bank to live off for over a year which I could possibly use as proof of income. If worst came to worst I could stay in a hotel but I am trying to avoid that at all cost. I am looking for answers from people that have been in this situation whether if its a landlord or a tenant.

  • How would tattoos/piercings/hair colour affect job interview chances?

    Best answer: The tattoo is fine if you can cover it up. Visible ones may cause problems, but as long as your tattoos are covered by clothes then no issues. Hair should be fine as well. Natural tones/highlights should be no issue. It is more an issue with crazy colours and styles. However, I would leave the piercing for now.... show more

    However, I would leave the piercing for now. While piercings are pretty commonplace these days, it is best to err on the side of caution. If you get the job and there is no stipulation against them, then go for it, but I would avoid it for now.
