Real estate evaluation

Real estate evaluation falls under the jurisdiction of the Municipalité Régionale de Comté (MRC), according to An Act concerning Municipal Taxation. The MRC des Pays-d’en-Haut has mandated ÉVIMBEC, a firm of accredited appraisers, to complete the assessment roll of the entire territory. Accredited appraisers are the only people entitled to modify an assessment roll.

The information included in the assessment roll comes from several sources:

  • The name of the owners: from the Bureau de la Publicité des droits d’Argenteuil at the time the notarized contract is registered;
  • Lot numbers and surface area: from the Registre Foncier du Québec ;
  • The change of address made by the owner to the Municipality is transferred to the appraiser;
  • Construction and renovation permits are transferred by the Municipality to the appraiser once the work is completed.

Real estate assessment roll

The assessment roll is an inventory of all immovables located on the municipal territory. It indicates the value of each property based on the real market value.

There is a new roll every three years. The value indicated reflects the real estate market conditions on July 1st of the previous year. Unless there have been modifications or improvements to the property, the figure is valid for the duration of those three years.

The 2022, 2023 and 2024 roll for the Municipality of Morin-Heights was deposited in October 2021 and reflects the market conditions on July 1st, 2020. It serves as a basis for establishing the municipal taxes for the years 2022, 2023 and 2024.

Contesting an evaluation

All requests for revision of property assessment have to be directed to the Evaluation department at the MRC des Pays d’en Haut Evaluation, see link below.

A tax payer wishing to contest an assessment can only do so the first year of the roll, except if modifications were made to the property generating a new evaluation.

A request for revision can be submitted within 60 days following the reception of the Notice of modification of the evaluation. The form to Request a revision is available at theService de l’évaluation de la MRC des Pays d’en Haut

For the 2022, 2023 and 2024 roll, the deadline for sending in requests for revision was before April 30th, 2022.

Quebec Land Register (Registre foncier du Québec)

The online Land Register contains information regarding all real estate transactions made in the province. Any citizen can consult it in exchange for a nominal fee.

To consult the index of immovables from the Quebec Land Register, one needs to know the lot number of the immovable. If the transaction was registered before the cadastral operation (from 1999 to 2006), it is essential to add that the Municipality was part of the Township of Morin, in the district of Argenteuil.
