6 THE PALM BEACH POST RESIDENCES ADVERTJSING SECTION SUNDAY, V1AKC-H 29, 1998 n Some useful book advice for mortgage applicants Robert J. Bruss Tribune Media Services NAVIGATING THE MORTGAGE MAZE, By Andrew E. Tumauer Jr. Henry Holt and Co.; $19.95; 176 pages. Until I read this new book, I never realized mortgage burrowing could be so interesting and complicated. Author An drew E. Turnauer Jr., who is identified as "head of a national mortgage brokerage," obviously knows his topic extremely well. What makes the book so fascinating is its use of an included computer diskette, "Qualify R." Although using it isn't mandatory, Qualify R makes the text much more practical as the reader winds through the mortgage maze. Turnauer spends considerable space on credit problems, including many examples of how to clear up incorrect credit reports. The book is filled with valuable tips on how to make obtaining a home loan almost easy. For example, he suggests avoiding verification of mortgage or rent payments by. submitting 12 months of on-time canceled checks. After completing the credit maze, the author directs readers through the mortgage maze itself, with his advice on the best type of mortgages available for the reader's possible situations. The computer software helps with the comparisons. The book's next major section deals with packaging everything together. Here, the "Maze Master's" opinions are highlighted in boxes. For example, he advises, "If you were late paying a bill, or even several bills, and had a good reason, a letter of explanation will serve you far better than deceit" This is the most creative "how to get a mortgage" book I've read. It is filled with facts, advice and sound ideas. The author shows he is a mortgage expert by disclosing information only an experienced lender would know.

For questions or comments: SURVEYfrom 4 carefully at the survey to assure there are no easements running through the center of the house or swimming pool. The survey will also show that the house, pool, fences, driveways and walks are properly positioned and do not encroach on a neighbor's property. It will also reveal any encroachments by others. For example, a neighbor's fence may have been built on your property, but it won't show up until a survey is done. Getting back to our problem, what could I have done to get better protection?
