lol, ok: how do you know? :)
Because I tried to build a garage right across from the side door of my house and was told I needed a ‘variance’ because my property has two ‘front yards’.
My tax bill states since I have ‘access’ to two roads, my property value is prorated to an amount equal to 1/4th of the total value of the property + the original property valve of a ‘single access’ property.
Problem is, I don’t have access to both ‘front yards’ and told the town as much. There is a ditch that crosses the yard on that side and a guard rail that would block any access, even if I wanted to put another driveway in.
With a little persuasion and a few pictures, I got them to reduce my taxes with a variance that states I have a ‘single access’ property.
Luckily the town is run by Conservatives..
