Do you know anything about Relocation Assistance?

Asked by GloPro (8248 points ) May 24th, 2014 from iPhone

A government agency purchased the land my house is on and I have until September to move before they raze the building.

They have assigned me a Relocation Assistance Agent. Should I hire a lawyer? He seems to be intent on finding me any 2 BR/1BA condo or apartment anywhere in Tahoe.

I currently live in 1,000 sq. ft. Apartment with only one neighbor, within walking distance of most things I do regularly, with beach access. I have kayaks right on the beach and a small private stairway from the beach to my place.

California Code stipulates that they find a comparable dwelling for me. Although the government purchased this land for expanded public beach access, the agent lists my apartment as having a beach view, which is not an amenity. I contend that I have beach access, which is definitely an amenity. I’m not sure what to do.

Any other info anyone has about Relocation Assistance Programs is also appreciated.
