How do I contest the property appraiser’s notice of intent to file a lien? This is usually whenever the property appraiser gives you notice that they are excluding your, homestead exemption and they’re filing a lien pursuant to the statute and that they have found where you’re getting benefit from another state. Therefore we’re not entitled to homestead exemption. The penalties and interests that are charged on these homestead liens are very, very high. The only way to contest them is to hire an attorney to go in and argue with the property appraiser or file suit in conjunction. With the matter they are very difficult to contest and to use of the property. Appraisers will not compromise or work with you in any way to reduce the amount of their lien. It’s a difficult situation and trying to find an attorney who will undertake representation would also be very difficult. You’re welcome to give me a call at (727) 847-2288. I can refer you to an attorney who will discuss this with you.
