The Select Board has awarded Commerford Nieder Perkins, LLC Appraisal and Assessment Services the 2015-2020 Contracted Assessor/Cyclical Revaluation Contract. Commerford Nieder Perkins will be performing ongoing Cyclical Reviews of all properties in town. The process begins with verifying the current data on the property record card and if a property owner is not at home exterior measurements are taken and letters are sent to request an interior inspection at a later date. Each year the Department of Revenue randomly selects property record cards to review and ensure that the data being collected is accurate and complete (RSA 21-J:II) then submits to the Select Board a Report of the Cyclical Review.

 

Commerford Nieder Perkins personnel will also be in the field inspecting all properties that have active building permits. This process usually begins early March weather permitting, and ends around the first of May of each year.   

 

All Commerford Nieder Perkins employees carry photo identification and a letter from the Assessing Office. Please contact the Assessor's Office for further verification.
