Patriot Properties staff visiting properties in Lynnfield

March 19, 2016

The Department of Revenue (DOR) mandates that all cities and towns physically inspect all properties at least every nine years. This is to ensure that the property data is correct in the computer-assisted mass appraisal system in order that values be calculated accurately. The collection and maintenance of current and accurate property inventory data is a critical element in determining uniform, fair market value.

In order to meet the DOR’s requirement, Patriot Properties staff, on behalf of the Assessors, will conduct inspections for those properties that have not been visited within the last seven years. The staff will begin with single family residences. They will have identification and a Letter of Authorization from the Board. Property owners will be asked for a complete interior and exterior inspection of your property. If a property owner is not home, an exterior inspection will be conducted.

The Board of Assessors wishes to thank Lynnfield residents in advance for their support of this effort to improve the accuracy of their records by completing this part of our cyclical inspection program. If you have any questions, you can contact the office at rboly.
