Property Record Card Verification Inspections

The Township of Manalapan is under contract with Realty Data Systems (“RDS”) to perform an exterior and interior inspection of all properties for the Assessor’s records. The properties are inspected on a 5-year cycle.

If you received a postcard, your property is scheduled to be inspected over the upcoming months. We anticipate the inspections to begin mid-June. Please note there are over 3,000 inspections; therefore, inspections will continue through July and possibly August. There will NOT be further notice prior to your inspection. If you are unavailable during their first visit, the exterior inspection will continue. A door hanger will be left with instructions on how to reschedule an appointment for the inspector to return for an interior inspection.

The inspection routes are predetermined; however, RDS will do their best to accommodate residents. Please be aware the inspectors will make a maximum of (3) visits.

For verification purposes, each inspector and his/her vehicle are registered with the Manalapan Township Police Department.

Please note: The inspectors are not appraisers and are not appraising your home. The inspectors are simply data collectors and return the data to the Assessor’s Office where the reassessment process is done annually.
