Appraisers still working in Shoreline

Tuesday, May 3, 2016

The King County Assessor's office advised that they still have people working in Shoreline, doing current appraisals of homes.

According to the Department of Assessments, during physical inspections of an area, you may see appraisers:

  • Driving slowly along residential streets;
  • Parking and walking along residential streets;
  • Doing physical inspections of the front and rear of residences, including measurements;
  • Taking photographs of residences; and
  • Knocking on doors to speak to residents if the appraisers have questions about changes to or features of the property.
They carry identification and will show it when asked. They may drive King County vehicles or private vehicles.

How does one know if they are watching an appraiser or a burglar at their neighbor's house?

Does the county have the legal right to walk onto our property without our permission? I have two big dogs (both licensed) and if someone attempts to walk into my backyard through the gate, I will not be responsible. My dogs are mostly harmless (kinda like Earth - I hope you get the reference! hahah), but I have no idea what they would do if they felt threatened in their own backyard without me there.
