The Wyandotte County Appraiser's Office personnel will begin its annual re-inspection of real estate properties in the County beginning June of 2019. This process will continue throughout the summer and into the fall.
Per Kansas statute (K.S.A. 79-1476), the County Appraiser's Office is required to physically view and re-inspect all parcels within the County on a six-year cycle, which relates to approximately 11,700 properties in Wyandotte County annually.
Wyandotte County Appraiser's Office personnel will typically work in teams in residential areas. Appraiser's Office staff will be driving vehicles and wearing badges identified with the Unified Government logo. Upon arrival at each home, staff is required to knock on the front door, identify themselves and ask permission to measure and photograph the exterior of the home along with any other structures located on the property. While on the property, they will be checking characteristic data, measurements and condition of each property. An interview will be conducted with the property owner or resident, if available. If no one is home staff will proceed with collecting exterior data and a yellow door hanger/questionnaire will be left requesting pertinent information about the home. If someone should find one of these cards left at their door, we ask that they please answer the questions and return it to the County Appraiser's Office as instructed.
Other routine field work will continue, such as the review of sale properties, parcels having new construction, demolished/destroyed buildings, and neighborhood reviews throughout the entire County.
We appreciate the cooperation of the residents as we proceed with our work. If any property owner has questions or wishes to inquire about the inventory of their property, they may contact the Wyandotte County Appraiser's Office by calling (913) 573-8400.
