If you're buying a property that contains rental units, consider obtaining a letter from a real estate broker or some other documentation verifying that the rents you plan to charge would be realistic. A lender who is qualifying you for a mortgage probably will not take your word for that.
The National Hurricane Center gives the storm a name from the list once a tropical storm reaches wind speeds of 39 mph and develops a counter-clockwise circulation.
The letters Q, U, X, Y and Z are omitted from the list because so few names begin with those letters. Names associated with storms that have caused significant death and/or damage are usually retired.
