Property owners who have experienced damage from the flood
or other circumstances can obtain a Destroyed Property form from the Assessor’s
Office on the second floor of the Historic Courthouse at 351 NW North St,
Chehalis, WA; by accessing the Assessor’s Office homepage at www.lewiscountywa.govand choosing the
form under the “Assessor Pages”; or by calling (360)740-1392. Forms can
be mailed or hand delivered to the address above or faxed to (360)740-1262.
After the form is submitted to the Assessor’s Office, a
Lewis County Appraiser will inspect the property and determine the current
value of the property. Lewis County Appraisers are easily identifiable;
they drive a marked county vehicle and wear a green or orange uniform shirt
under their orange safety vest. They will be wearing an identification
badge and will leave a business card at the property. If you have any
questions about someone being on your property representing themselves as a
Lewis County Appraiser who does not have proper identification or uniform,
please call the Assessor’s Office at 360-740-1392. Destroyed property
inspections are completed according to workloads and routes of staff.
