The City Council wants to reconvene the RSIP group to again look at revising the development standards. Eleven of the nine RSIP 2 group say they are willing to help. This leaves a couple of spots open. We would love to see a representative from CREA on the committee. The City Council will make the final selection. The link below is an application to be completed and submitted to the City Clerk by November 6.

Beware of Solar Systems

If you are representing the Buyer or Seller of a home with a solar system, be sure to investigate whether or not the system was installed under a lease arrangement with the solar company.  If the system is leased, the lessor will typically record a document called a UCC-1 to protect their interest in the equipment.  The UCC-1 will show up in a title search and the title company will require the ownership of the solar equipment be resolved before a title policy can be issued.  The solar equipment lessor sometimes requires that the Buyer of the property be approved for the lease – at their sole discretion, which may impact the Buyer’s ability to qualify for a loan.  The lessor may also require the remaining balance of the lease be paid upon transfer of the property, which can often be as much as $50K!  Similarly, if the lease is to be assumed, we suggest you check the terms of the lease carefully.  Some start out at very low rates which increase exponentially over time.

Have Announcements?

Please submit any Coronado real estate related announcements (ie Open Houses, buyer/seller needs, price reductions, rentals, etc.) to and CREA will market to CREA membership via email and our Facebook page.
