RE: City of Lexington 2018 General Reassessment
Dear Property Owner:
The City of Lexington is currently conducting a general reassessment of all real property which will go into effect July 1, 2018. Wampler-Eanes Appraisal Group, Ltd. has been contracted by the City to perform this service. We have asked members of their team to do a full exterior walk-around inspection of each property in the City, to take pictures of the property, and to update our City records with their inspection notes. We are authorized by Virginia State Code 58.1-3280 to have this duty performed and the code reads as follows:
Code: 58.1-3280 Assessment of Values
Every assessor or appraiser so designated under this chapter shall, as soon as practicable after being so designated, proceed to ascertain and assess the fair market value of all lands and lots assessable by them, with the improvements and buildings thereon. They shall make a physical examination thereof if required by the taxpayer and in all other cases where they deem it advisable.
Please refer here for more information.
Thank you for your cooperation. If you have any questions, please feel free to call me at 540-462-3701.
