WHAT IS A CYCLICAL REINSPECTION?

The Department of Revenue and Massachusetts General Laws require the Board of Assessors to maintain a reinspection program of the properties within the community. The program consists of an inspection of all properties in Middleborough every 9 years i.e. Cyclical Reinspection.

WHY ARE WE DOING A CYCLICAL REINSPECTION?

The Board of Assessors is responsible to maintain a full and fair market value of all properties in Middleborough. This can only be accomplished if the data we have is accurate. The collection and maintenance of current and accurate property inventory data is a critical element in determining uniform, fair market value.

HOW ARE WE DOING A CYCLICAL REINSPECTION?

A cyclical inspection will be attempted on all properties in the town unless the property has been visited within the last nine years. The data collector is a member of the assessing staff and carries a picture ID. If no one is at home, the data collector will leave a door hanger to notify the homeowner that someone from this office was on the property. In no case will the data collector enter the dwelling if there is no one home who is at least 18 years of age.

WHAT IS THE END RESULT OF A CYCLICAL REINSPECTION?

The final goal is uniform, fair market value of all properties in Middleborough. In other words, a fair assessment of your property.
