About the Department

The role of the Assessing Department is the valuation of the 31,822 parcels located in the Township of Waterford. According to the Michigan General Property Tax Laws, P.A. 206 of 1983 as amended, we must discover and value all parcels, both real and personal, which are not exempted by law. This site contains information on:

  • Determining a property’s value
  • Appealing value at the March Board of Review
  • The name of registered owner of property at a particular address (The owner may be an individual or a business)
  • A property’s description, assessed value, and taxable value
  • Charter Township of Waterford Plat Book, which contains maps of Township parcels (The maps give the location of property designated by specific parcel numbers and a diagram of property configuration)

For digital sketches, go to the Property Gateway through Oakland County.

For non-digital sketches please contact the office at 248-674-6270.

At this time we will email sketches but payment is still expected either by mail or your next in person visit after COVID-19 is over. Sketches are 50 cents per page.
