I received a letter saying assumptions will be applied. What does that mean?

If the reassessment team can’t see the interior of your home then they will assume that the interior is similar in QUALITY and CONDITION to the exterior of your home. This does not automatically mean that the valuation will be higher. However, if your home’s interior is in significantly nicer or poorer shape than the exterior, it may be a good idea to provide the assessors with photographs or allow them inside. This is the same process that has been used for all previous reassessments.
