Horticulture tips for November
Stillwater NewsPress • Thursday, November 12, 2020
In case you’ve already completed your ice storm cleanup and are ready for some additional landscape activities, here are some timely tips. • Spring blooming bulbs can still be planted, but don’t wait much longer. Almost all spring bulbs need a cold dormancy period to trigger spring flowering. This varies depending on the species, so it’s best to get them in the ground as soon as possible. • November is a good time to make a nitrogen application for cool-season turfgrasses such as tall fescue if additional growth is needed.
• Leaving plants in the garden tends to harbor pests and disease so clean up any remaining plant residue as soon as possible. • This is also a good time to clean up some select ornamentals. The key word REED here is “some.” Pethe excess, but the rennials that are quantity will be a bit cold sensitive much smaller and should be left alone easier to manage. until next spring.

Actively growing tall fescue may still need mowing regularly until we have a significant and sustained cool off. • Speaking of tall fescue, one of the significant contributors to its decline is the build-up of excess leaves. While it is not necessary to remove leaves from a turfgrass area as soon as they fall, it is important to prevent them from completely blocking all light, water and air movement. This is especially important this year as many of the leaves fell while still green and more likely to form a dense mat. One of the easiest ways to dispose of

tal grasses put on their best show in the winter, making them good candidates for spring cleanup. • Don’t forget to winterize your tools and equipment. Putting tools away clean and sharp (with a light coating of oil) will pay dividends in the spring. Adding fuel stabilizer to small engines is also another important garden task that will pay big dividends come springtime. • November is also a great time of year to walk

creating more conversations in this space so customers know there are tools to help them.” Members of the MBA, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, the American Bankers Association, and the Housing Policy Council played an integral role in the initiative’s development and successful launch. In addition, housing counseling agencies such as Neighborworks America, the National Housing Resource Center and the National Housing Conference also participated. The vast majority of loan servicers are expected to participate in the effort, uniting under the common purpose of leaving no COVID19 impacted borrower behind. The need for the outreach campaign was identified during meetings of the Mortgage Markets COVID-19 Collaborative, convened by the Urban Institute’s Housing Finance Policy Center in March, 2020. Urban Institute research found that more than three million mortgage borrowers are in active CARES Act forbearance programs today but that 400,000 delinquent borrowers not in forbearance, who qualified for the same forbearance programs, could be
Stillwater NewsPress • Thursday, November 12, 2020
WASHINGTON, D.C., – This week, an independent coalition of U.S. mortgage industry leaders launched the ‘NOT OK? THAT’S OK’ campaign to raise awareness among customers who have missed one or more mortgage payments in 2020 and may be eligible for forbearance assistance under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act. Faith Schwartz, president of Housing Finance Strategies, spearheaded the industry effort. Said Schwartz, “Sometimes customers don’t call their mortgage company because they don’t have the funds to make a payment. They just don’t engage. Payment relief programs exist for almost all loan types where mortgage servicers may provide instant relief to struggling homeowners, but a discussion is needed.” The borrower awareness campaign supplements the significant existing outreach efforts undertaken by servicers, both on their own and as required by the GSEs, FHA, VA and the CFPB. Pete Mills, senior vice president of the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA), said, “The goal is to expand our reach by

Home inspections worth the money Buyers who purchase a home without first obtaining a satisfactory inspection report run the risk of “inheriting” all of the seller’s problems. DEAR DAVE: I disagree with your statement that all buyers should make their offers contingent on first obtaining a satisfactory report from a professional home inspector. Nearly every state requires sellers to disclose defects that they know about, and buyers can sue if the seller isn’t forthcoming. As a result, don’t you think that paying several hundred dollars for a professional inspection is just a waste of money? ANSWER: No, paying for a home inspection is never a waste of money. Every buyer should order one, even if he or she is buying a newly constructed house directly from a builder. True, most states require sellers to
disclose any problems that they know about. However, they generally cannot be held liable for failing to disclose defects that they didn’t know existed. For example, say you purchased a house without ordering an inspection, and it slid off the foundation when the first rainstorm arrived. The only way you could collect damages from the seller would be to prove that he knew about the problem -- or at least should have known -- and failed to disclose it to you. At best, you would have to spend thousands of dollars in legal fees and countless hours in court pursuing a claim with an uncertain outcome. Had you instead hired a professional inspector, it’s likely that the inspector would have noticed telltale signs, such as fissures or buckling in the cement, that the foundation was
ABOUT REAL ESTATE DAVID MYERS giving way. You then could have negotiated with the seller to have the necessary repairs made, or simply use the contract’s inspection contingency to cancel the sale and get your deposit back. In short, paying a few hundred dollars for a thorough inspection is cheap insurance against purchasing a property that may be loaded with hidden defects that could be costly to repair. ••• DEAR DAVE: I am a first-time landlord. My tenant, who gave me a $900 security deposit when he moved in a year ago,
left behind $1,650 in damages when he moved out last month. Can I sue the tenant for the $750 difference in smallclaims court? ANSWER: Yes, landlords in most areas can sue if damage caused by a tenant who moves out exceeds the amount of the security deposit he provided when he first moved in. Call your local rent board or apartment owners’ association for more information. ••• DEAR DAVE: I applied for a home loan a few weeks ago through a mortgage broker and paid
estate scamster to create an official-looking report in an effort to get a loan under false pretenses. Ordering the document directly from the bureaus virtually eliminates such risks. Getting an up-tothe-minute report also reduces the chance that the lender will issue a mortgage to a borrower whose financial situation has recently taken a turn for the worse or will begin to deteriorate soon. You’d be surprised at the number of buyers who try to rush through the application process and close the loan before a pending bankruptcy or other serious black mark can appear on their record and scuttle their chances of getting a new loan. I’m quite sure that
you’re not trying to pull a fast one, but your lender can’t be as trusting. That’s why you’ll have to pay for a brand-new credit report. ••• Our booklet, “Straight Talk about Living Trusts,” explains how even lowand middle-income homeowners can now reap the same benefits that creating an inexpensive trust once provided only to the wealthiest families.

her $75 for a credit report. Now I have decided to use a different broker, but he, too, wants to charge $75 for a report. Can’t he just use the one I purchased through the first broker? It’s only a few weeks old, and my financial situation hasn’t changed. ANSWER: Sorry, but your new broker can’t use the report that was ordered by your old one even though your financial situation hasn’t changed. There are a number of reasons why lenders and mortgage brokers typically insist on ordering their own reports directly from the credit bureaus. For starters, it helps cut down on fraud: Computer software has become so sophisticated that it’s fairly easy for a real

Reduce cold-weather fire risk Plenty of things heat up when the temperature drops, including the risk for fire hazards. Fireplaces, stoves, heating systems, candles, and even electric lights are used more often during the winter than any other time of year, so it makes sense that the risk of home fires increases when the mercury drops. The U.S. Fire Administration says 905 people die in winter home fires each year. Cooking is the leading cause of all home fires and contributes to around $2 billion in property loss each year. Understanding potential risks and exercising caution can help homeowners protect themselves, their families and their homes from fire.

utility officials must appear before regulators and ask for the investment to be included in the rates that the company charges. The public can participate in these proceedings. After hearing from interested parties, regulators decide whether to include the value of the asset in rates. If they approve it, then this asset is amortized over time, like a mortgage. The customers effectively make regular payments and pay interest – called the cost of capital – on the unrecovered balance. So if an asset for this unpaid debt is created, it would be treated like any other investment and be recovered over time from all of the utility’s customers. Turn bills into bonds
Some states have talked about securitizing these unpaid charges. This means taking a set of assets that can’t easily be converted into cash and turning them into a financial product. One way this might work would be for a state government to issue bonds with a total value equal to the utility’s unpaid bills. The state would pay the proceeds from selling these bonds to utilities and repay the debt over time. This approach spreads the cost of unpaid electric bills over all of the state’s taxpayers, since the state would use money from tax collections to pay people who buy the bonds. Make utilities take the hit: Some advocates argue that utilities should foot the bill
for customers who can’t pay during the pandemic. But neither governments nor corporations have money of their own: Governments get it from taxpayers, and utilities get it from their customers and investors. On the surface, requiring utility investors to absorb the cost of unpaid bills might seem like a clever way to protect customers. But the reality is far more complicated. First, as data from North Carolina show, a significant number of people in arrears are customers of municipal utilities, which are owned by cities and states, or cooperative utilities that are owned by their customers. These types of utilities don’t have outside equity investors whom they can ask for money to cover unpaid bills.
