Looking to purchase from deceased estate?

Hi, I think you have to start with the basics. Firstly leave a handwritten letter at the property for the property owner to get in touch. Just leave a telephone number rather than an address.

The appeals process against the ruling by the VO is heard by lay people effectively ordinary people with nothing else to do in life. They do however listen to reasoned arguments and they will listen to your case in plain English. I did win an appeal once for a friend of mine who I accompanied as "prisoners friend", a case of getting the panel on side. It is a buildings or dwellings tax and not a poll tax so not all parts of the building are habitable without access to the common areas.... Read More
