Does Damage From The Recent Flooding Affect My Property Value??

Many homeowners in Harris County have experienced property damage due to the recent storms and flooding. As a courtesy, we want to remind you that the appraised value of your property for 2016 is set based on the home’s condition as of January 1of this year. We appraise property every year on January 1, so recent flood damage to your home that is not repaired by January 1, 2017, may be reflected in next year’s value. If you have already filed a protest or are planning to file a protest, please be aware that the recent flooding will not affect the taxable value of your property for this year.

Resources That May Be Helpful

REPORT: Residents who experienced flooding in their home or business should report the damage to the City of Houston by phone at 311, download the Houston 311 app on their mobile phones or visit to submit a flooding report. These reports are important because they impact the resources the city may receive from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

SERVICES: For those in need of shelter, services are available through the Red Cross

REPAIRS: In planning for repairs, the Texas Attorney General offered the following tips for hiring contractors.

• Only do business with licensed or bonded contractors or builders

• Contact an insurance adjuster to get an estimate of the damage and repair cost

• Consult the Better Business Bureau to ensure you are working with a trustworthy business

• Be wary of contractors who solicit services door-to-door, especially those that are unfamiliar or from out of town
