Corona, CA asked in Appeals / Appellate Law, Real Estate Law and White Collar Crime for California

Q: Letter from Board of Supervisor says I have 90 days to appeal, nothing about notice of appeal, is it necessary?

Just want to know since this is day 45 out of the 90 days I have to appeal, do I need to first file a notice of appeal? What do I need to prove in this appeal? Excess Proceeds were 22k and they signed off on $7400 and plan on transferring 14,800 to their general fund. This is criminal and they know it. I showed up to the Board of Supervisors meeting and signed in yet they refused to let me speak. They gave percentages of my excess tax proceeds to someone who sold me the property because somehow his name is still showing on the deed. He is dead now. They then said the new owners of property were to get one fourth the proceeds why because they are used to stealing everyone's money no other reason and it is fraud and RICO ACT violations. So not sure what I'm supposed to prove. The dead man sold me the property the title company said they took care of it and as it turns out the land was unbuildable. They stopped me after they greenlighted the home to be built and I spent 40k so far.

A: In California, if you've received a letter from the Board of Supervisors with a 90-day window to appeal their decision regarding excess tax proceeds, it's advisable to file a notice of appeal within that timeframe to preserve your right to challenge their decision. In your appeal, you should provide evidence and arguments to support your claim that the allocation of proceeds was improper, potentially involving legal violations such as fraud or RICO Act violations, as you've described. Consult with an attorney to help you prepare a strong appeal that addresses these issues effectively.
