Notice Regarding Defective Concrete Foundations and Reassessment Process - Assessor's Office



South Windsor is one of roughly twenty municipalities in Northeastern Connecticut known to have properties built using defective concrete used in building foundations.  Legislation passed in 2016 has allowed owners of properties built with defective concrete to request a reassessment by the Town if their property is impacted by defective concrete.  If your property is impacted by defective concrete, you must have a licensed, professional engineer inspect your property, and that engineer can provide you with a report that indicates your property has defective concrete.  A copy of that report must be filed with the Assessor’s Office in South Windsor, then a member of the assessment staff will inspect your property.  In order for any reassessment not previously requested, to take effect for the Grand List (tax list) of October 1, 2017, which coincides with the tax bills payable beginning in July 2018; you must submit your engineers report to the Assessor’s office on or before December 15, 2017.
