  • No. I wouldn't do it. Then you have entered yourself into possible legal trouble.

    Why does your friend need that?

  • The only reason I can think of someone needing something like that is to fool the government to get assistance. So, no I wouldn't do it.

  • Well if you rent from them that would be income added to their total from food stamps or what not, so there wouldn't be a benefit to i,, Why did someone want that?

  • You should have a rescind letter ready to give them immediately. So basically you sign something saying that you rent but the contract is void if rescinded within XXX amount of days. Then you sign a seperate letter, which is a rescind letter saying that you would like to void the contract. They don't have to show the bank the rescind letter but you have it just in case anything comes of the original letter. Make sense?

  • Also, keep in mind, that if the IRS were to be tipped off the you received rental income and did not report it, you could be looking at some back-tax issues.

    Definate;y something you should stay away from.
