  • I owe my university $7,000. Can I file bankruptcy on that debt? It is NOT from a student loan?

    I just found out that my financial aid never went through 5 years ago when I went to this school. I moved and it's taken them this long to get in touch with me. The debt is not from any student loans, it's just an unpaid debt through the school.

  • Why do we need to pay to do our taxes?

    Best answer: You don't. You can print the forms off at irs.gov, or check and see iv your local library has them - and fill them out yourself. The free online versions are mostly free only if you just have a W-2 - and many charge for a state return. They stopped mailing them out several years ago, and made them available... show more

  • Can credit card companies legally give you a credit limit based on your gender?

    I'm fairly young and have only had a credit history for about 31/2yrs now. I have always made on-time payments and have kept my credit utilization low. I have had a job at the same place for 2 years now, so work history is good. I have multiple credit cards and a car loan, yet almost all the inquiries are gone and my FICO credit score is 705. My husband has been out of work until recently and has only a few months of continuous work history. His credit score is a little lower, but about the same. He also has only 2yrs of credit history, but we both have that car loan in our name, and he has a few credit cards as well. Recently. I applied for a discover cash rewards card and my limit was only $1,500. He then applied with my referral link and was also approved and despite us putting down the same amount for combined income and total assets, his credit line is $5,500. The same thing happened when he applied for Capital One and he was approved for $3,000 when he had no credit history and only just started working one day prior, when I had over a year and worked longer and only received a $300 limit. He also is only a few months older than me, so it can't be about age. Since all of my criteria is much better than his, what reason would they have to give me a significantly lower amount (I'm okay with $1,500 to start, but it's the principle of the situation)? Does this not go against the Federal Discrimination laws?

  • How does house flipping REALLY work?

    For example: you spend $100,000 to purchase and fix up a house already on the market as a finished product to make $101,000? That's of course if you're lucky enough to secure the mortgage to pay for it. So for all of that " hard work" and "sweat equity", you've only made $1,000.... show more

It's like buying crap from Wal Mart, "fixing it up", and reselling it on Craigslist. Seems like a pointless business to me. Someone help me understand,

  • Shouldn't our landlords lower our rent by taking away the garage?

    Recently we have had moisture & water get into our garage at the house we are renting. The landlords have now told us the garage can not be used anymore because a new foundation has to be put in to stop the problem. Meanwhile it sounds like they may even be knocking the garage down, and perhaps building another one, but also adding on a bedroom and bath next to the new garage. We have a lot of stuff, and also have a storage shed. The storage shed is filled to the brim & the garage is filled to the brim. We have no place now to put our stuff. PLUS, there hasn't been one mention of the landlords saying they would lower the rent now that we won't have a garage. How fair is that? Shouldn't they legally be made to lower the rent while we have to put a lot of our stuff in storage, or go buy another storage shed? If all this work starts, I have a feeling we will be asked to move, because I can't see how they could do it with us living here. Advise please!!!! We have to deal with a management place, and it's very difficult to get them to return calls. They have pretty much actually told us there is nothing we can do but move our stuff from the garage.
