Can I refuse to allow the assessors access to my property?

You may decide not to allow the assessors inside your home and can tell them to leave your property entirely. You may also decline to fill out the information request. If you choose not to provide any additional information to the reassessment company, assumptions will have to be applied, which could potentially impact the updated value of your property. Assumptions simply means that the team will have assume that the interior of your home is similar in condition and quality to your home’s exterior.
