A Message From the Assessor Regarding Dilapidated Structures
May 03, 2013

A concern was expressed recently by a property owner who feared that improving his property by removing an unused dilapidated building would result in an increase in the property's assessment.  Actually, the opposite is true. 

 

A parcel's total assessed value is arrived at by assigning a value to the land, and also to each and every structure or improvement on the parcel, and then totalling all of them.  While a dilapidated building may not have a lot of value in the assessor's eyes, it is a structure, and some value is assigned to it. By removing the structure, the property owner then gives the assessor the ability to totally remove the structure's listing on the tax roll, thereby removing that value from the total assessment.
