Property inspectors will be visiting homes in Ipswich during October/November to confirm that the records held by the Town reflect the actual conditions of properties. The Massachusetts Bureau of Local Assessments requires officials to inspect each parcel in towns at least once every nine years. An inspection of the property includes a full measure and listing of the interior and exterior. In preparation for our FY 2017 Triennial Certification, the Assessor’s Office has contracted with Patriot Properties, Inc. to conduct inspections of approximately 500 properties beginning October 19, 2015. Employees of Patriot Properties will request a few minutes of your time to conduct an inspection. Employees will have identification, and a letter signed by the Chief Assessor. If you have any questions, or wish to know if your property is on the list
to be inspected, please contact the Assessor’s Office at (978) 356-6603.
