Does the Assessor need to inspect my house?
By state mandate every property in the state of Massachusetts has to be inspected by a representative of the local Assessors Department at least every ten years. Our property inspections are ongoing, and are systematically organized to conform to the 10 year visitation cycle. Letters to property owners are mailed requesting a phone call to our office to schedule an inspection. We make every attempt to provide a convenient appointment schedule for property owners. The inspection lasts only fifteen minutes or so. An interior property inspection is an important factor in determining an equitable and accurate assessment for your property. You should expect to be hearing from us if it has been a while since your property was last inspected.
