Asking for a Real Estate Reduction
Our neighbor gave us the name of a lawyer friend and told us to retain him to obtain a reduction of the assessment of our property. We have to give him $25 prior to his filing and if he succeeds in getting a reduction, he will take a one-time fee of 33 1/3% of the reduction.
My question is by seeking a reduction, can there be other consequences that can steamroll from our filing for a reduction. I just don't want to make it worse for us in the long run.
If anyone has any experience with this, I greatly appreciate any advice.
