The County Assessor's office is responsible for the records management and assessments for all real property located within Albemarle County. The transfer of ownership of property is performed by obtaining deed transfers, deeds of correction, and lists of heirs, wills and other records from the Clerk of the Circuit Court. Accurate and efficient recordings of transfers are essential to ensure actual owners of property are assessed and taxed. Our mission is to provide fair and equitable property assessments for all taxpayers of Albemarle County and to meet the needs of the taxpayers by providing the highest degree of professionalism and assistance.
