Property Assessments 2015 - appeal deadline February 2! - January 29, 2015

2015 Property Assessment notices: Have you checked yours?

BC Assessment sent out its 2015 Property Assessment Notices earlier this month. And now some co-ops will have noticed a significant increase from last year. 

Small increases are expected, but CHF BC has learned that for some co-ops the increases are higher than usual — 25% or more. At this point, we are not certain whether there are good grounds to make appeals, but we know that action is needed quickly if a co-op wants to appeal its assessment. 

CHF BC is working with an experienced real estate consultant to determine whether a group appeal makes sense. That consultant is willing to file appeals both for Richmond area co-ops and any other Federation member co-op that has noted assessment increases of 25% or more, without further obligation.

If your co-op falls into either of those categories and you are interested in investigating an appeal with CHF BC, please send a copy of its 2015 Property Assessment Notice to Michael Rodgers, Co-op Viability Director (email: mrodgers@chf.bc.ca; fax: 604-879-4611) by 9 AM, Monday, February 2, 2015.

If your co-op is interested in the general appeals process, there is more information on the BC Assessment website. Even if you choose to file an appeal on your own, the deadline is February 2, 2015.
