On page 2 of the appeal form, Monroe County asks:
A. how much the owner is charges for renting each unit.
B. how much much was financed, the term, and rate.
C. It also asks for 3 years of income and expenses.
On page 3, it asks for more details that are irrelevant to the value of that property: 3 years of expenses for insurance, electricity, water, manager's salary, legal & accounting, advertising, and more.
The information requested: amount financed, the rents collected, and 3 years of expenses should be considered private, confidential, and therefore out of bounds when considering a property's value.
How do any of the following scenarios affect the property's value?
If a building owner:
- financed half of the property in the form of a commercial mortgage?
- decided to rent out his units at half price?
- pays more than he should for building maintenance?
- rents the units to Section 8 tenants where the rent is fixed?
If you think about it, I think you will agree that none of these items affect the property's VALUE - this is just another example of government overreach.
