DISCLOSURE

Rustie Ames, Licensed Real Estate Associate, Property Manager and D. Deen Lancaster, Broker with Deen Lancaster Realty, Inc. told me that he/she is not a lawyer and may not give legal advice to represent me in court.

Rustie Ames, Licensed Real Estate Associate, Property Manager and D. Deen Lancaster, Broker with Deen Lancaster Realty, Inc. told me that he/she may only help me in completing an application for tenancy, signing and completing a lease agreement and assisting me in any other documentation that I will need during my tenancy.

Rustie Ames, Licensed Real Estate Associate and D. Deen Lancaster, Broker with Deen Lancaster Realty, Inc. told me that he/she may assist me with obtaining and the preparation of court documents and rental history in the event of an eviction but can not represent me as an attorney at court for any monetary judgment against any landlord.

In the event such judgment is necessary Rustie Ames, Licensed Real Estate Associate and D. Deen Lancaster, Broker with Deen Lancaster Realty, Inc. advises me to obtain an attorney to represent me in court.

Rustie Ames, Licensed Real Estate Associate and/or D. Deen Lancaster, Broker with Deen Lancaster Realty, Inc. will be present at court with all documentation necessary to obtain eviction or monetary damages for the Landlord/Owner/Tenant.

Rustie Ames, Licensed Real Estate Associate and/or D. Deen Lancaster, Broker with Deen Lancaster Realty, Inc. does not work solely for the Landlord or the Tenant. Deen Lancaster Realty, Inc. works as a Transaction Broker in this transaction.

As a transaction broker, Deen Lancaster Realty, Inc. and its associates provides to you a limited form of representation that includes the following duties: 1. Dealing honestly and fairly; 2. Accounting for all funds; 3. Using skill, care and diligence in the transaction; 4. Disclosing all know facts that materially affect the value/tenancy of residential real property and are not readily observable to the buyer/tenant; 5. Limited confidentiality, unless waived in writing by a party. This limited confidentiality will prevent disclosure that the landlord may accept a rental price less than the asking or advertised price, that the tenant will pay a price greater than the asking price or advertised price, of the motivation of either party for renting the property, that a Landlord or Tenant will agree to terms other than those offered, or any other information requested by a party to remain confidential; and 6. Any additional duties that are entered into by this or by separate written agreement. Limited representation means that a Tenant or Landlord is not responsible for the acts of the licensee. Additionally, parties are giving up their right to the undivided loyalty of the licensee. This aspect of limited representation allows a licensee to facilitate a real estate transaction / lease agreement by assisting both the Landlord and the Tenant, but a licensee will not work to represent one party.

FCRA SUMMARY OF RIGHTS

A Summary of Your Rights - Under the Fair Credit Reporting Act.

The federal Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) is designed to promote accuracy, fairness, and privacy of information in the files of every "consumer reporting agency" (CRA). Most CRAs are credit bureaus that gather and sell information about you - such as if you pay your bills on time or have filed bankruptcy - to creditors, employers, landlords, and other businesses. You can find the complete text of the FCRA, 15 U.S.C.§§1681-1681u, by visiting www.ftc.gov. The FCRA gives you specific rights, as outlined below. You may have additional rights under state law. You may contact a state or local consumer protection agency or a state attorney general to learn those rights.

You must be told if information in your file has been used against you. Anyone who uses information from a CRA to take action against you - such as denying an application for credit, insurance, or employment - must tell you, and give you the name, address, and phone number or the CRA that provided the consumer report.

You can find out what is in your file. At your request, a CRA must give you the information in your file, and a list of everyone who has requested it recently. There is no charge for the report if a person has taken action against you because of information supplied by the CRA, if you request the report within 60 days of receiving notice of the action. You also are entitled to one free report every twelve months upon request if you certify (1) you are unemployed and plan to seek employment within 60 days, (2) you are on welfare, or (3) your report is inaccurate due to fraud. Otherwise, a CRA may charge you up to eight dollars.

You can dispute inaccurate information with the CRA. If you tell a CRA that your file contains inaccurate information, the CRA must investigate the items (usually within 30 days) by presenting to its information source all relevant evidence you submit, unless your dispute is frivolous. The source must review your evidence and report its findings to the CRA. (The source also must advise national CRAs - to which it has provided the data - of any error.) The CRA must give you a written report of the investigation and a copy of your report if the investigation results in any change. If the CRA's investigation does not resolve the dispute, you may add a brief statement to your file. The CRA must normally include a summary of your statement in the future reports. If an item is deleted or a dispute statement is filed, you may ask that anyone who has recently received your report be notified of the change.

Inaccurate information must be corrected or deleted. A CRA must remove or correct inaccurate or unverified information from its files, usually within 30 days after you dispute it. However, the CRA is not required to remove accurate data from your file unless it is outdated (as described below) or cannot be verified.
