I have recently bought a home in Elkins Park, PA and have just been informed that the Board of Assessments is looking at my property to be re-assessed. Apparently there might be Build Permit issues from on an addition which was put in way, way before I bought the home. What is my recourse in this situation. I have bought the house in Good Faith. The inspection was done properly. If I get re-assessed at a higher point it will probably cause us to not be able to afford our home. Can the Board increase our Taxes immediately to what the surrounding houses is? Do they do it incrementally? Why am I responsible for something which has occurred before me buying the home. The house size and amenities inspection correspond to the Public Records which what we were seeing at the time we bought the house. It didn't seem like anything was OFF about the property. If I get a lawyer, can I fight this in court and succeed or should I try and sell the home ASAP?
