Real estate inspections

Easton assessors will be going door to door over the next few weeks conducting inspections of both the interior and exterior of residential, commercial, and industrial properties. The state Department of Revenue requires every community to reinspect its real estate periodically to ensure the accuracy of assessing data. Inspectors Robert Alford, Ann Williams, and David Glynn will be making the rounds with identification, and will not inspect the interior of a property unless a person age 18 or older is present. If no one is available for the interior inspection, a notice will be left on the doorknob asking residents to call the Assessors’ Office at 508-230-0520 to set up appointment, Alford said.
