The City of Lacombe, through its property assessment provider Powers and Associates Appraisal Services Inc., conducts annual inspections of properties within the city to compile the data necessary to complete the annual property assessments.
The goal is to have a quarter of the city inspected each year, resulting in the whole city being inspected every four years.
See the map below for the areas scheduled for assessment inspections in September 2016.
Property assessors gather detailed information about each property by making on-site visits or by corresponding with the owner of the property.
A property inspection is conducted so that all characteristics of the property that affect the assessment are taken into consideration when the assessor determines the property’s value.
All newly constructed properties require an inspection. Likewise, existing properties need to be reviewed from time to time to ensure the information used to create the property’s assessment remains accurate.
If you have further questions or concerns regarding the property assessment process, please contact Powers and Associates Appraisal Services Inc. at 1-877-867-9079.
