Georgia Law (OCGA § 48-5-264.1) requires property owners and occupants be provided reasonable notice prior to a site visit conducted by or on behalf of the Candler County Assessors Office. In accordance with this law, be advised that an appraiser will visit your property at least once during our three-year review cycle.  In addition, if you apply for an exemption through Preferential Assessment, Conservation Use Assessment, Forest Land Protection Act, or file a property return or appeal a property valuation, an appraiser will visit that property. The purpose of this visit will be to evaluate the property for compliance with the appropriate covenant, and to evaluate the property for changes in improvements and accessories and the total evaluation of the specific property. The issuance of a Building Permit will also require a visit to your property.  The appraiser will gather necessary property information and take photographs. The appraiser will have a photo identification badge and will be driving an appropriately marked vehicle.  If the appraiser is not allowed access to your property, estimations will be performed.  If there is any question about the identity of the appraiser, or if there are any questions regarding the visit, you may contact the Candler County Assessors’ Office at 912-685-6346.
