Interesting story happened in Lakewood last week. A class was learning about Nezirus, and a 12 and a half year old boy said I am becoming a Nozir, for a minute. The Halacha is that someone close to 13 (Kotan hasomuch L’ish) can also be mekabel nezirus (and if you make yourself a Nazir for even a short time, it’s automatically for 30 days). Rav Forsheimer was asked and after consulting with Reb Shmuel Kamintesky, said that they have to keep Nezirus till they go to a Rav to Matir it. (not sure if I got all the facts correct)
We have to make them remove the words first report. Lakewoodnj08701 posted it before them

An appraiser came to my house for property taxes. He said the interior inspection is optional; they can estimate. Should we have him inspect or not? Thanks.

Imho yes.
If you don't they can asses you at the maximum possible for the space. - eg if you have a half finished attic, they can assume that it's all finished.

I know that others disagree, but I believe thats just an emotional decision.

I was told ^ by a frum appraiser who also fights property tax appraisals. They also can assume you have a full finished basement.

OTOH if you have a finished basement and attic any maybe some other off the records work, then it might be worth it...

I like Moti's on James (near Cross). For $45 he does a full checkup and will recommend what is worth fixing and what is not etc. He has sometimes told me not to have work done and to go to the dealer instead to get it covered by warranty (which no other mechanic has ever told me.... )
