Ham Lake Assessor Review 2022

Article Date

Minnesota State law requires Assessors to physically visit and review each property within the city once every five years. This year, May through Sept, the Ham Lake Assessors will be visiting and reviewing all properties in the area outlined below as part of the 5-year review.

If your property is in the review area, here’s what you can expect:

  • The Assessor will come to the property and knock or ring the doorbell. If an adult is present, an inside review may be requested depending on the last time a full review was done. The Assessor will also walk around the outside of all buildings (if accessible) to verify exterior characteristics.  
  • If no one is there when the Assessor stops by, they will leave a door hanger with instructions if they have questions.
  • Characteristics of the property that affect market value are age, square footage, quality of construction, condition, basement finish, recent remodeling, location, etc.  
  • The Assessor will be wearing an official identification badge and carries business cards.

In addition to the 5-year review area outlined above, the Assessors will visit new construction, permit, and remodeling work of all property types in all areas of the city through the end of the year. 

THANK YOU, in advance, for your cooperation during this year’s assessment review.
