Alabama woman dressing dogs for Halloween to help find forever homes

Cute doggies? Check. Cute costumes? Check.

Adorable way to let people know about rescue dogs? Check, times a gabillion.

Huntsville resident Sara Alavi has been fostering rescue dogs until they can be adopted. And to help find those forever homes, Alavi created the Instagram page @dearpups. “I created the page to share some fun images of my own rescue dogs and some of my fosters in hopes that they might get adopted,” she said, although she says has been lax in keeping it updated in the past.

Now she’s found an awwww-inspiring way to keep her page current: During October, she is posting photos each day of her dog, Nelly aka Jellybean, and some of her fosters wearing Halloween costumes. She is calling the challenge Nellyween and so far it includes costumes like Ruff Bader Ginsburg, Eve, Carol Baskin, and even the famed dress from Carol Burnett’s parody of “Gone

New Public Health Eviction Ban For Renters

A new federal eviction ban is in place for renters hurt by job loss during the coronavirus pandemic.

The ban, ordered by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), runs from September 4 through December 31, 2020. If you’re facing eviction, you should sign this CDC form attesting to your situation and turn it into your landlord.

The CDC form lists several conditions that you must agree are true:

Berlin Rent Freeze Cuts Prices, But It’s Harder to Find a Flat

Rentals of apartments built before 2014 dropped 59%.

It’s been nearly eight months since Berlin introduced a five-year rent freeze and restrictions forcing landlords to reduce prices by as much as 40%. While some people are paying less, it’s harder to find a new rental—and some prospective tenants are being asked to sign shady side contracts. 

In September, the number of homes available for rent in Berlin was down 42% from a year earlier, and those affected by the new legislation—built before 2014—dropped by 59%, according to ImmoScout24, Germany’s dominant online real estate platform. “There are often several hundred inquiries for each apartment, and ads are frequently taken down within a day,” says Thomas Schroeter, the company’s managing director.

Some Berlin government officials and tenant groups attribute shortages to a drop in turnover due to the pandemic, but data from ImmoScout and other market

Two Burlington shelters find new homes with more space

BURLINGTON — Since March, the Burlington homeless shelter ANEW Place has been on the move. When the pandemic forced residents and staff out of its downtown location, the shelter offered housing in RVs at North Beach, and then, three months later, moved guests to tents at the beach campground.

Now, ANEW Place may finally get a permanent home.

An emergency resolution passed by the City Council on Monday night will allow ANEW Place to buy and move into what is now the Champlain Inn near the rotary on Shelburne Road. The shelter is just waiting for final approval on funding from the Vermont Housing and Conservation Board — which ANEW Place director Kevin Pounds says he is “really hopeful”

Duplex Foreclosures for Sale | Find a Cheap Foreclosed Duplex for Sale in your Area

A duplex property contains two rental units on one parcel of land, in one legal description and tax identification number. A duplex is a dwelling that has two separate apartments or living units. It is the smallest type of multi-family properties. Some properties that contain two homes on the same lot are considered duplexes.

Duplex houses should not be confused with townhouses or semi-detached houses. Townhouses and semi-detached homes are sold as one single-family unit even though the homes are connected by at least one shared wall. In this case, each townhouse has its own parcel ID number and legal description. A duplex also should not be confused with the terms “twin house” or “gemini.” A twin house or Gemini refers to one unit with a duplex.

A duplex foreclosure is a two family home that is being or has been repossessed by the lender because the owner has
