Have you seen a government car in your neighborhood? Or maybe you've spotted someone taking photographs and measurements outside of a home?
You may have seen the PVA staff performing neighborhood inspections, a vital step in accurately assessing property values.
Kentucky state law (KRS 132.690) requires PVA staff to physically examine every parcel of real property at least once every four years. The schedule of these inspections is called the quadrennial plan - or "quad." The Department of Revenue approves the quad to ensure that all parcels are inspected as required.
This year's quad includes all farms as well as 44 of Fayette County's 300+ residential neighborhoods. The accompanying map highlights the neighborhoods we will be visiting this year. (Click here for a detailed map.)
An assessor from the Fayette County PVA Office will visit each property, take a new photograph and look for changes since the previous inspection. PVA staff do not access the inside of homes but by law may enter backyards (KRS 132.220) to inspect additions or improvements.
Assessors always perform neighborhood inspections in marked cars and will identify themselves as PVA staff.
If you would like more information, or would like the PVA to explain this process at your neighborhood association meeting, please contact us at (859) 246-2722.
