[ARCHIVED] Property Inspections

The Department of Revenue's Bureau of Local Assessment requires that communities re-inspect all town property, at least once every nine years. During an inspection, the Assessor (or our consultant Patriot Properties, Inc.) gains entry to a property and reviews the current condition, taking measurements and noting any changes on the property record card. This enables the Assessors to maintain an up-to-date property database. Whether prompted by a building permit, a transfer of title or abatement request, or whether part of a cyclical re-inspection program or measure and list effort, a program of regular inspections enables a community to maintain the most current property database and helps ensure that all taxpayers are assessed fairly, and pay their fair share of the property tax burden.
