2. Lighting. Be sure that all interior and exterior lights are working. Although it’s not a seller’s responsibility to replace light bulbs, if the light does not turn on during an inspection, the inspector does not replace bulbs and it is the responsibility of the seller to d ...

Beaufort County assesses properties in a few different ways. The most common way is an assessable transfer of interest, also simply known as the sale or retitling of a property. Typically when a home is purchased, that purchase price is used to value the property, which is adjusted in the subsequent year of ownership.
A lesser known way of assessment is through a county-wide assessment, which is the notice you’ve recently received. These updated values are as of Dec. 31, 2017, and you’ve most likely seen your value increase quit ...
