Assessing Department

Assessing Visits are in progress - review of Lake District properties

Bristol Residents,

In light of the Governor’s announcement regarding the State of Emergency, we feel the need to be responsible and safe, and want to keep our residents informed. The Town’s assessors from Commerford Nieder Perkins will be continuing their data verification procedures for the assessing work that needs to be completed this year.  They will however, not be performing interior inspections at this time, but will knock on your door to let you know they are there.  They will also leave a door tag.  If you are home and not feeling well please do not open the door to greet them, but rather acknowledge their presence through a door or window.  However, if you are able to review your interior information with the assessor at the door please feel free, otherwise at some point in the future you will receive a letter, or phone call in some instances, to schedule and/or verify interior information.

The safety of the company’s staff and our residents is top priority so we appreciate your understanding and cooperation in this matter.


The primary function of the Assessing Department is to ensure that all property within the Town of Bristol is assessed fairly and in accordance with the New Hampshire laws governing property assessment.
