Why did I receive a note on my door indicating that the Assessor wanted to inspect my house?

The Assessors’ office may want to inspect your property for several different reasons. First, all property within the community must be physically inspected every 6 to 9 years in order to meet DOR guidelines. This is referred to as a cyclical inspection. The Assessors’ office also conducts its own inspections after a building permit is issued. The building permit inspections are usually conducted much later than the building department’s inspections.
