Should a property owner be concerned?
One of the most common concerns we see is the interior inspection. The most common questions asked are: Are interior inspections important? Are they necessary? Does the assessor have the right or should the municipality enforce the inspection process? While the assessor will always respect the wishes of the property owner, in order to accurately value a property, they must see what they are valuing. One would not make a sensible offer to buy a home without seeing the inside nor would one make any kind of large purchase without fully understanding what it is that is being purchased. If the homeowner denies the interior inspection, assessors will estimate based on the best available information per the Wisconsin Property Assessment Manual.

Assessors are not interested in reporting potential permit violations only in assessing value.
