Appraiser’s Office Annual Property Re-inspections

6/24/2019 12:00:00 AM

Summer and Fall


The Wyandotte County Appraiser’s Office personnel has begun its annual re-inspection of real estate properties.  This process will continue throughout the summer and into the fall. 
 
Kansas counties are on a six-year cycle of re-inspecting all parcels within the County. This work is required by Kansas State law, K.S.A. 79-1476.
 
Appraiser’s Office staff will be working in teams (Northern Team – Downtown/Central Area and Southern Team – Bonner Springs); re-inspection areas are identified in maps located on the Appraiser's web page.  They will be driving vehicles, as well as wearing badges and apparel identified with the Unified Government logo. Staff will be checking the listings, measurements and characteristics of all buildings on each property visited. The listings of vacant land will also be reviewed. They will also interview the property owner or resident, if available. If no one is home, staff will proceed with collecting exterior data and a yellow questionnaire card will be left pertaining to information about the house. If you find one of these cards left at the door, please answer the questions and return it to the County Appraiser’s Office as directed.
 
This re-inspection work is in addition to other routine work such as the review of recent sale properties, parcels having new construction, torn down or destroyed buildings, as well as neighborhood reviews throughout the entire County.
 
We appreciate the cooperation of the residents as we proceed with our work. If any property owner has questions or wishes to inquire about the inventory of their property, they may contact the County Appraiser’s Office at (913) 573-8400
