Town of Lyman - 2021-2025 Full Cyclical Revaluation

In 2021, the Town of Lyman contracted with the assessing firm of Commerford Nieder Perkins, LLC to begin a four-year revaluation of property for the Town of Lyman.  They will be visiting all of the properties in the town, but will do so in sections. 

If the homeowner is not home, the appraiser will leave a notice stating that they visited the property and measured the buildings, and also indicate that the homeowner will receive a letter in the future, which will provide information regarding the interior inspection process.

An interior inspection typically should not take more than 10 minutes. No property will be entered unless there is someone 18 years of age or older at home at the time of the visit. They will be looking for information such as: quality of construction, year built, functional utility, condition, number of bedrooms, number of bathrooms, type of floors, type of interior walls, and type of heat.

The data collector may also collect or verify the information at the door by asking questions of the homeowner.  As the homeowner, if you have information about the property that may not be apparent from the outside, such as seasonally wet basements, cracks in foundations, leaking roof etc. please bring that type of information to the appraiser’s attention. After the interior portion is complete, the appraiser will measure all buildings on the property.  Any information collected that needs to be adjusted will be entered into the Town’s CAMA software each year.

Completing the Revaluation Process 

In the late fall of 2025, the final values will be set for all properties based on the current market conditions at that time.  Each property owner will receive a letter with their new assessed value and detailed information regarding taxpayer hearings if there are questions or concerns regarding the value. Once these hearings have been completed the new valuations will be used to generate the new tax rate and tax bills.  If a property owner is still aggrieved by their value, they may then file an abatement with the town by March 1st, 2026.
