2018 State Mandated Property Revaluations Are Underway

Bristol Town Hall Founded 1680 Entrance Sign by Rick Giannini

The Town of Bristol has begun the 2018 full Property Revaluation. The state of Rhode Island mandates that Cities and Towns revalue all property every three years, and perform full inspections every 9 years. (RIGL 44-5-11.6).  The Town has hired Northeast Revaluation Group, LLC, a municipal revaluation vendor located in Warwick, RI to assist with the project. 

                  

Inspectors from Northeast have begun the first phase of the project which consists of taking a new digital photo of all improved properties.  Data Collectors who perform this task for Northeast will have identification badges, and their automobiles are registered with the Police Department.  After the new photos have been taken, Data Collectors will then start “Measuring & Listing” homes.  Inspectors will introduce themselves when they visit a property and request permission to enter the property to check information such as room counts, finished basements, and other typical features.  If no one is home at the time, the inspector will check exterior measurements and data, then at a later date, the property owner will receive a letter requesting that they make an appointment for the interior inspection.  It is important to note that no valuation decisions are made at the time of inspection. The Measure and List process is an important function of the project and used to verify or correct the data listed in the Town’s database.  Please note that Data Collectors do not have any information regarding tax bills or potential changes in the tax rate.

The project is scheduled for completion in early 2019 and property owners can expect to receive a new assessment notice at that time. For any questions regarding this process, please call the Assessor’s office at 401-253-7000.
