The PVA staff visits and inspects one-fourth of approximately 300 distinct residential neighborhoods each year. We conduct these inspections as part of our quadrennial reassessment plan as required and approved by the Kentucky Department of Revenue.

While inspecting neighborhoods, we review the characteristics and condition of properties and their improvements, look for changes since the previous inspection and update the photographs we post to FayettePVA.com.

We recommend homeowners register with the community social media platform Next Door for updates from David O'Neill - the PVA - regarding the timing of these inspections as well as other timely and important updates.

When PVA field staff members are in your neighborhood they will be driving well-marked state vehicles, which always have a Commonwealth of Kentucky seal on the door. Our motor vehicle pool includes silver Hondas, a blue Toyota, a black Ford Taurus and a black Ford Explorer. 

In some neighborhoods, generally those where houses are set close together with narrow streets, PVA staff may park the car and inspect the neighborhood on foot, in which case they will be wearing an easy to identify blue and yellow safety vest. You may also call the office if you ever wish to confirm if we have staff in your area at (859) 246-2722.

If Your Property is Reassessed

If your property assessment increases you will be mailed an assessment notice on or around April 15, similiar to this example. You can also retreive a PDF version of your assessment notice from your property record on this website at any time after April 15 each year, whether your assessment changes or not. . 

Your assessment notice will also include this brochure which explains the entire reassessment process and what you should do if you wish to question your assessment.

A recent Herald-Leader article regarding the building of new homes in Scott County estimated the number of residential building lots available for development in Georgetown and Scott County at approximately 1,100. A search of PVA records has identified 1,637 residential & exempt parcels of less than one acre in Lexington that have no improvements (vacant) as of January 1, 2017. It is unknown whether the properties are actually available for sale or if they are suitable for development per LFUCG zoning, ordinances and other possible limitations. 

This list is intended to help identify possible housing solutions and raise awareness of local housing shortages particularly with respect to affordability.

*Note: This list has been revised since its original publication to include exempt property holdings and a significant number of urban parcels previously omitted due to conflicting lot size data, and to exclude new houses currently under construction.
