In an effort to make our real estate information more accessible, the Board of Assessors has created this information database. All of the data found here was taken from our working database and is the same information found on the Assessors' Public Access workstation in our office. This information is the most up to date available and will be updated regularly to keep it as current as possible. We are interested in knowing how our searchable database worked for you. Please drop us an E-mail at assessor@hingham-ma.gov

The information found here is the actual bill for Fiscal Year 2012. The names and addresses are as of January 1, 2011. The Parcel ID contains the map and key numbers needed to order a municipal lien certificate from the Treasurer/Collector. The first number is 131 which is our town code, the next number is the map number, and the last number is the key number. If the property is a condominium, the middle number is the owner number and must be given as part of the map and key.

When you select the "Assessment Data" icon you will arrive at the Assessment Data page. Select "New Search" to the left of the screen. This will bring you to the search page. Type in the name of the owner or the street address of the property you want to view - only one is required. It is better to be simple in your query. If you are unsure whether it is a street, road or avenue, leave it off. If you are unsure of the spelling, use the first three or four letters only. A list of properties will appear. Select the parcel ID of the property you want. This brings you to a summary screen.

To print out the Property Record Card, you need to have Adobe® Acrobat® Reader®, which you can download for free from the Adobe® website (see below). If Adobe® Acrobat® Reader® is already installed, select the Adobe® PDF icon in the upper right-hand section of the screen. This will bring up the Property Record Card with a sketch and picture if they are available. This card can be printed using the print icon on the Adobe toolbar inside the browser. To look at another property, select the "Back" button to move to the previous screen and select "New Search" from the left-hand menu.

Zoning information included here is indicatory and should be corroborated. The Building Commissioner is authorized to make all zoning determinations in the Town of Hingham.
