NORTH HAVEN 2019 GRAND LIST REVALUATION
The Town of North Haven has begun work on the 2019GL revaluation, as mandated by Connecticut State Statute 12-62(b). This statute requires all municipalities to revalue all of its real estate not later than five years after their last revaluation. The Town of North Haven’s last revaluation was completed as of October 1, 2014, therefore we are mandated to complete a revaluation for October 1, 2019.
The primary purpose of a revaluation, which is a mass appraisal of all real property within an assessment jurisdiction, is to eliminate any assessment inequities that may have developed since the implementation of a previous revaluation. This is accomplished by updating the assessments of real property to reflect their fair market value.
The Town of North Haven has retained eQuality Valuation Services, of Waterbury, CT to assist the Assessor complete the revaluation. eQuality will have data collectors in the field looking at all residential and commercial properties to check data. All data collectors will have a photo ID and be registered with the town. The collection process will run from now until October 2019.
