You Can Dispute, But You Might Need Help

Processing a Dispute can be ComplicatedSenior Adult Couple Going Over Papers in Their Home with Agent.

People look forward to spring as a time to clean up the property. That can be landscaping or just mowing the lawn. Some people unfortunately find a nasty surprise in their mailbox about their property. It may be a notice that their property has been reassessed and that the taxes are going up. Another nasty note may come from the lender, saying that the Federal Emergency Management Administration (FEMA) has designated the neighborhood as a high-risk flood zone. This means having to buy expensive flood insurance. The good news is that tax assessments and FEMA decisions can be disputed. Getting help from a group legal plan can make the process move a lot smoother.

It Can Get Rather Complicated

A person might feel an attorney is not necessary, but that opinion can change once the process starts. FEMA is going to require a Letter of Map Amendment in order for successful dispute. The appeals process for property taxes will include hearings and dispute forms being filled out. There also are some very strict deadlines regarding property assessment disputes, and other procedures that must be followed. Good group legal services has an attorney available to help. This individual is knowledgeable about what public agencies are looking for in any property tax disagreement. A group legal plan member is well served because the wrong information can throw everything back to square one. The attorney can point out what is important and how it can best be presented in any dispute process. This type of help is going one step beyond routine group legal plan benefits. An attorney is directly involved in providing help. That little extra attention is a primary quality of a Countrywide Pre-Paid Legal Services benefit.
