All properties within Red Deer County are reviewed on a five year re-inspection cycle to ensure that assessment information remains current. In addition, property inspections may be conducted by Red Deer County assessors at any time due to circumstances such as development, reported changes to the property and/or a sale of the property, to ensure that the assessment information remains current and as accurate as possible. Red Deer County’s Assessment Services Department strives to value property as fairly as possible in relation to similar properties, and in accordance with provincial legislation, regulations and guidelines. An inspection ensures that all characteristics affecting the property are considered in its valuation. This may include an interior and exterior inspection of the property. Typically, the assessor will be confirming measurements of houses and any outbuildings that do not qualify as farm buildings and may involve the assessor taking photos during the inspection.
Assessor will be identified by driving a Red Deer County marked vehicle and you may request identification at any time. If the assessor is not able to get in touch with the owner while they are on the property, they will leave a door knocker on the door stating who was there and what phone number they can be reached at for inquiries. Alternatively, the assessor may leave a Re-Inspection Form for the property owner to fill out and return to the Assessment Services Department. If you require a re-inspection, or if there are any changes to your property that you would like to report, please call our Assessment Services Department at 403.350.2166 and ask to speak to an assessor.
