What is a field review?
To provide the most accurate current market value, all properties should be visited every four to six years. Qualified appraisers from the Office of the Real Estate Assessor review the exterior of all structures to verify the data currently on file.

Currently, in the City of Norfolk, residential field reviews are conducted from the public right of way (sidewalk or street). Interior inspections are conducted if requested by the property owner or if warranted due to a building permit.
