but there's two rules. one they have to give you a month notice if it's a less than 10% increase in rent, two they've got to give you two months notice if it's going to be more than 10% rent. you get a little bit of warning there. also, of course they're not allowed to up your rent if you're in the middle of a contract. if you have a lease they can't touch you. can mortgage companies force consumers to buy additional insurance to protect the loan. >> my first home i think you pay pmi that's private mortgage insurance that productects the mortgage company. if you put down less than 20% they don't trust you. they want to make sure they're going to get their money. we have a new law after two years if your home equity is more than 20% you can quit paying. you have to file paperwork, but
it's a good way to get out of that. anyone that has bought a house in the last three years, that's in the paperwork. here in the bay area you're probably above the 20% no. in today's wellness report a new trend yoga and pot. and a warning about a glutton free diet for kids. as the popularity keeps rising experts warn about the risk for children. there's problems for children without a medical issue being fed glutton free products. the article says they can be missing out on key newt rents they be getting excessive suggest yar and they could be exposed to toxins as well. researchers posing as patients with skin problems sought help with online companies with unsettling results. some of the online doctors misdiagnose several conditions and some prescribed medications without asking key questions
