hot water

I just bought a trailer house that was about 50% rebuilt when the people who owned it got a job out of state and had to move and sell it. Ok the kitchen sink has 0 water pressure you can get water out but it is real slow. in the bathroom right near the hot water tank the hose for the washer and shower and sink are fine it is just the hot water away from it in the kitchen. I am new at rebuilding and hope to learn has I go any ideas on where to start to get water pressure up in the kitchen.

A. Make sure that the cold water shut-off valve to the water heater is wide open, and that all shut-off valves at sinks and fixtures are wide open.
B. Remove the kitchen sink spout aerator to clean it out. A clogged aerator is the usual suspect when water pressure is fine everywhere but at a particular sink.
Good Luck!
