Meeting ID: 896 3317 3737
Passcode: 436425

After so many years, you have decided that you want to give your beautiful house a new fresh look and a coat of paint is just what you are considering. Do you know how to do it? Do you know there are different types of paint to use interior or exterior? Do you know how to patch the holes and cracks permanently, so they do not reappear after you paint?  This virtual workshop focuses on making your home beautiful. Brian will  demonstrate the art of mixing and applying a great new finish to your home.  To become proactive, the class will develop a “to-do list”, designed to prevent  future finishing problems from reoccurring.

If you send Brian pictures and a brief description of your home repairs/concerns, he will address them at the end of the class presentation. Please send no later than 2 days prior to scheduled class to klhinspections@gmail.com and include Great Neck LIbrary in the subject line.

 

Brian Schnee is a Liscensed Home Inspector with 30 years of construction experience.

The Price We Pay for College w/ Ron Lieber + Special Guest Chris Erickson, GNSHS Guidance Counselor

On the heels of the publication of his new book about what to pay for college, Ron Lieber, author and columnist will talk about who pays what and why, explain how the system got so complicated, pull the curtain back on the semisecret merit aid discounts that even affluent families get, and help you figure out when, if ever, a private college or university is $200,000 better than a SUNY college or university. He'll also leave time to answer all your questions.  Ron will be joined by Chris Erickson who will share his expertise as a Guidance Counselor at Great Neck South High School.  Ron Lieber has been the Your Money columnist for The New York Times since 2008.

We will go over the following questions:

Are you Buying or Selling? What are the 3 means of real property ownership in New York State? What are the Differences between Houses and Condominum units and Cooperative units? How does the transaction transpire from start to finish?What is Title Insurance?  Why Does a Purchaser Need it? Does it matter if the Purchaser applies for a Mortgage or if this is an “All Cash” Deal? What does the Title Report Show? Do you need a Survey? What happens when the property lacks the required permits and certificates for improvements? Was your fence not placed on the line and now your neighbor is claiming ownership of part of “your”  land? How do zoning laws, liens, and money judgments affect real property?

W. Zehava Schechter, Esq. is an attorney admitted to the New York Bar for more than 30 years.  Her law practice is concentrated in Estate Planning, Administration, and Litigation; Elder Law; Real Estate Law; and Business Law on Long Island and New York City.
