Property Inspections

KSA 79-1476 requires that each property in the county be inspected at least once every 6 years.  At the property, the county staff will take photographs of the house and outbuildings. The county staff will also confirm the current buildings and property characteristics. The vehicle we will be driving is a gray Chevrolet Colorado pick-up with the Appraiser’s Office decals in the windows. Our inspection period is expected to begin in June and run through October.
