South Carolina has drop in foreclosures, falls under U.S. average

If you're living in South Carolina and face foreclosure, you're not alone. While the economy is improving, many people in the state are still filing foreclosure papers. South Carolina is once again falling below national averages when it comes to foreclosure filings. According to the news from Oct. 16, foreclosure filings in South Carolina dropped 11 percent from August and 23 percent from September, but that's still not holding up to the economic growth in the other parts of the United States. South Carolina had approximately one foreclosure filing for every 1,069 households.

What can you do if your neighbor is a nuisance in South Carolina?

If your neighbor is being a nuisance and you've just completed your real estate transaction, is there anything you can do about it? Fortunately, there are some laws that protect your rights as a homeowner. The law of nuisance usually covers lawsuits that involve neighbors who are suing their neighbors or public officials who are suing property owners. In these cases, it's likely that one person feels that the property owner is causing a problem that affects those around him or her.

Commercial leases and your right to negotiation in South Carolina

Commercial leases interestingly don't have standard agreements. It's normal to have to negotiate the lease's terms and agreements. As a business owner, this may seem like a huge benefit, but if you don't negotiate the terms well, you could be left with unfair terms in the future. For that reason, it's important to have legal guidance while you determine your leasing arrangement.

Foreclosure isn't your only option in South Carolina

You may be struggling with your mortgage, debts or other issues at home. Maybe an illness made you fall behind on payments, or your home's value is no longer what it once was. All of these situations can influence your ability to pay back your home loan.

What should you look for when buying a home in South Carolina?

There are several questions you should be asking yourself before you purchase a new home. You always need to have a home inspector come to check the property, but this checklist can help you sort out some issues on your own. For instance, you need to look at the home to determine structural issues. Is the house in good shape inside or is there damage to the interior walls? Is the flooring made of good materials, and are the doors and windows working properly to keep the heat in and the cold out or vice versa?
