CANTERBURY 2020 REVALUATION

 

Canterbury began its state mandated 5-year Revaluation in December 2019 with residential data collection. Vision Government Solutions has been contracted to complete the revaluation for October 1, 2020.

Change in Revaluation ProcedureIn order to continue to ensure the utmost accuracy in data collection, data collectors and field review staff will drive by each property to review the exterior information on each building.  Data collectors will not enter any property at this time to ensure the health and safety of all parties during the Covid19 pandemic.  Inspections will resume in the fall to the extent possible.  

The following order from the Governor is dated March 23rd, 2020: Substitution of Full Inspection Requirements Pertaining to October 1, 2020 Grand List Revaluations. The requirement set forth under Section 12-62 of the Connecticut General Statutes pertaining to October 1, 2020 Grand List revaluations that require a full interior inspection of property, for which such interior inspection that has not yet been completed, is suspended and replaced with the alternative requirement to send a questionnaire to the owner as outlined in Section 12-62(b)(4). 

Based on the Governor's Order, if you receive a questionnaire regarding your property, please fill it out and return it as instructed for maximum accuracy in valuation.  

The major phases to a municipal revaluation are: Data Collection, Market Analysis, Valuation, Field Review and Informal Hearings. Every representative of Vision Government Solutions Inc will wear a photo ID and their vehicles will be registered with the state police.
