The Department of Revenue requires that every community re-inspect its real estate periodically.
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 Seekonk Board of Assessors will inspect 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. All inspections are done by the Assessors' Department.
This person will go to different streets and inspect both the interior and the exterior of the property. The person will have Town identification with his or her photograph on it and will not inspect the interior of the property unless a person 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 (508)336-2980 to set up an appointment to view the property interior.
The Board of Assessors urges the public to be cooperative with the inspector and understand that by assuring the accuracy of assessing information, the Town will ensure that every homeowner pays his/her fair share in taxes.
