Boro of Hopatcong

Project Status (as of October 24, 2023)
The first step of the revaluation process is the inspection of all properties in the Borough. In the coming months inspectors from Appraisal Systems, Inc. will visit your property. The first visit from an inspector will be between the hours of 9:00am and 5:00pm. Appraisal Systems, Inc. representatives will carry photo identification and their names will be registered with the Police Department and the Borough Assessor’s Office.

Due to ongoing COVID-19 concerns, inspectors will be supplied with masks while performing inspections. The exterior inspection includes exterior measurements and photographs. An interior inspection needs to be made for accuracy. If that is not possible at this time please call our office at 201-493-8530 for other options. Please be aware if you opt out of a physical, interior inspection, an interior inspection may be necessary at some point in the future.

If you are not present at the first visit, the inspector will leave an interior inspection card with further instructions. If an onsite interior inspection is conducted, owners/occupants will be requested to sign the field form verifying that the inspector completed an interior inspection. Owners of rental properties should notify all tenants of the rental units that an inspection will be forthcoming by ASI and coordinate the interior inspection option with them.

If your property has a unique condition that you believe may influence its value, please send documentation to our office: Appraisal Systems, Inc., 17-17 Route 208N – Suite 210, Fairlawn, NJ 07410 and it will be considered.

After the appraisals have been completed, you will be notified of the proposed assessment as well as procedures to review the assessment with a representative of the firm.

Please call ASI with any inquiries regarding the inspection procedure or the revaluation process at (201) 493-8530.

Please check back to this page throughout the revaluation process as more information will be posted. Inspection have begun as of the week of March 20, 2023. Check the "Inspector Locations" PDF for exact properties that have been assigned for inspection to date.
