Cyclical inspections of properties are required by the Department of Revenue for all developed properties in each town every nine years. The inspection is a formality which usually takes about 15 minutes. We note differences, if any, from our description and the property. Thus if there was a finished basement in our records and there is a unfinished basement on the property we will adjust our records which will change the assessed value.
Inspections along Wendell Rd and Locks Pond Rd (and roads adjacent to these) started in July and properties in the Lake Wyola area will be visited in August and September. Notices have been mailed to all property owners in these areas. Call or email our office if you would like to schedule an inspection.
Send email to firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule appointments for cyclical inspections.
