Michigan Property Consultants has no legal expertise whatsoever and has no interest in routinely undertaking property tax appeals. When there is a legitimate disagreement regarding a valuation issue or a property tax process, our function is to act as a mediator, bringing parties together. We evaluate issues; providing advice as to the types of solutions that may be available and the least costly method of securing those solutions. A number of our clients avoid costly appeals and are quite satisfied following an initial consultation or ongoing consultations. Since we do not make our living from the appeal of property taxes, we do not bill based upon a percentage of tax savings. Our fee structure is based upon a standard hourly rate.
