Dear friends and valued clients;
By now, most of you have received your Propery Assessments for 2019. Many of your assessed values are incorrect as the data was compiled back in July 2018. The real estate market has shifted and many of the assessed values are over inflated.
If you feel that your assessed value may be incorrect, you have options.
- Firstly, contact me for updated value of your home. I'd be happy to propvide this at no cost or obligation to you.
- Secondly, contact the BC Assessment Office at 1-866-825-8322 or 604-739-8588 to discuss your Assessment.
- If you still feel that your Assessment is incorrect, you may file for a Notice of Complaint (appeal) for a formal hearing with an Independent Property Assessment Review Panel. The Notice of Complaint Form (appeal) can be found online at www.bcassessment.ca. A complaint (appeal) must be filed online, by mail, or delivered in person to your local BC Assessment Office.
Hearings are heard between February 1st to March 15th, 2019. A notice of hearing will be sent to you approximately 5 days prior to your hearing.
Again, please note that the Deadline for Filing a Complaint (Appeal) is JANUARY 31, 2019.
