Cyclical Inspections of Property

The Monson Assessor’s office is in the process of doing cyclical inspections of real estate properties
throughout the town, as well as inspections for building permits and new sales. The inspections will be done during the coming months with inspectors going door-to-door throughout neighborhoods to do inspections of both the interior and exterior of properties.

The Department of Revenue requires that every community re-inspect its real estate within a nine year cycle. The state suggests reviewing a portion of properties every year rather than having a huge expense for all inspections in one year’s budget.  As a result the Monson Board of Assessors inspects some of its property every year. In addition to meeting state requirements, the objective of this project is to assure the accuracy of the Town’s assessing data.

Inspections for building permits and recent sales are also being done by the town’s principal assessor Alyce Johns and assessors staff assistant Lauren Aldrich, who will have Town identification with her photograph on it. Inspections of the interior of the property will not be done unless a person age 18 or older is present. If no one is available for the interior inspection, a notice will be left on the doorknob requesting that the resident call the Assessor’s office at 413-267-4120 to set up appointment to review the property’s interior.

There will be in some areas of town an independent contract who will have a letter of introduction from the town on town letterhead and signed by the principal assessor.

The Board of Assessors thanks the public for their cooperation with the inspections and understanding that by assuring the accuracy of the assessing information, the Town will ensure that every homeowner pays only his or her fair share of taxes.
