...Information about the process - maybe a link to what to expect etc...

Filing deadline

Your request for hearing must be received by the Office of Administrative Hearings within thirty (30) calendar days of the date of the Order of Condemnation that you are appealing.  The time runs from the date of the Order of Condemnation, NOT from the date you received it. 

If the filing deadline falls on a Saturday, Sunday or a legal holiday, the deadline is extended to the next business day.

Failure to file a request for hearing within this deadline subjects your appeal to dismissal.

  • No one is authorized to give you different instructions for filing a request for hearing.
