The law obliges municipalities to reassess real estate at least once every 5 years (CGS 12-62b (1)). As part of the reassessment, municipal inspectors from the Office of Municipal Appraisers will conduct physical inspections of the properties by scanning the exterior of the property. If there are any variances in square footage or in improvements to new buildings, you will be reassessed.
