Board of Assessors

Dear Longmeadow property owner,

 

As a quality control measure, the Massachusetts Department of Revenue requires cities and towns to inspect all property over a 9 year cycle. This process began in 2013 and will continue into the spring of 2014.

 

A data collector from KRT Appraisal (Josh or Chris) who visits your home will ask to inspect the interior and exterior of your home. Accurate information is necessary to assure fair and equitable assessed values.

 

Each data collector will have a photo ID and is listed with the Longmeadow Police and Assessors’ Office.

 

If you are not home when the data collector visits, a letter will be sent asking that you call to arrange an inspection.

 

Your cooperation with this process is appreciated. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the Assessor’s Office at (413) 565-4115.
