NS Property Assessment Authority Asks Property Owners Take Part in Checks and Balances

Property Valuation Services Corporation is asking Nova Scotia property owners to take part in one of their assessment quality checks by reviewing their 2018 preliminary assessment.

PVSC published preliminary assessments today at www.pvsc.ca, and encourages property owners to contact them if they have additional information or would like to discuss their property.

“In the fall, our focus turns to reviewing and confirming the physical state and characteristics of properties,” said Carlos Resendes, VP of Business and Innovation Services. “Changes to a property happen, and when we have the most up-to-date information it produces more accurate results.”

PVSC introduced a preliminary assessment period three years ago and has seen an increase in the number of property owners participating, but would like to see more take advantage of the opportunity – one that is unique to only a handful of assessment jurisdictions in North America.

“As an organization, we have an unwavering commitment to client service and are focused on results,” said Resendes. “If you have questions, please call us.”

PVSC has a fully staffed service centre that is ready to provide assistance and answer questions. Property owners can also speak directly with an assessor who will review their property details, explain how we determined assessments, and speak to local real estate markets.

The deadline for PVSC to update property information is November 30. PVSC’s service centre is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm at 1-800-380-7775. Property owners can also sign up to receive their assessment notice online via Canada Post’s epost™ service.
