Property type classification codes - Assessors' Manual

Assessor's Manuals

WATERFRONT/PROPERTY OWNERSHIP CODES : What are they and how are they used?

Property Type Classification Codes were originally developed to describe the primary use of each parcel of real property on an assessment roll. They are not designed to describe land having water frontage or the type of ownership of parcels. A need exists for a field which can describe land having any significant water frontage and/or special forms of ownership, such as association, condominium, cooperative and time share. These kinds of ownership, and land that includes water frontage, may exist in many classes of property, for instance residential, commercial, recreation, etc. They may be found in various types of construction, ranging from single detached units to high-rise buildings to extended docking complexes.

Rather than create duplicate codes for all property types where ownership can vary, with or without water frontage, waterfront/ownership codes have been developed to be used with existing property type codes. The water front/ownership codes should be used only for those properties meeting the following definitions.

For those using the New York State Real Property System (RPS), the waterfront/ownership field is located on the property description and location update screen.

There are nine waterfront/ownership codes:

  • A - Association (without waterfront) : The parcel is individually owned without any water frontage and, in addition, the owner of the parcel shares ownership with other members of the association in the ownership of common areas (i.e., land, lake frontage, docks, pools, tennis courts, etc.). The common areas should also have this code.
  • B - Association (with waterfront) : The parcel is individually owned with water frontage and, in addition, the owner of the parcel shares ownership with other members of the association in the ownership of common areas (i.e., land, lake frontage, docks, pools, tennis courts, etc.). The common areas should also have this code.
  • C - Condominium (without waterfront) : The property is held in condominium form of ownership without any water frontage. Typically a unit is individually owned, and an interest is owned in the land and in common improvements.
  • D - Condominium (with waterfront) : The property is held in condominium form of ownership with water frontage. Typically a unit is individually owned, and an interest is owned in the land and in common improvements.
  • P - Cooperative (without waterfront)e : The property is held in cooperative form of ownership without any water frontage. The unit and improvements are not individually owned. Individuals own shares in the corporation which owns the entire property. The share defines the unit and its liabilities.
  • Q - Cooperative (with waterfront) : The property is held in cooperative form of ownership with water frontage. The unit and improvements are not individually owned. Individual's own shares in the corporation that owns the entire property. The share defines the unit and its liabilities.
  • T - Time Share (without waterfront) : There are multiple owners of the property, each with the right to use a specific unit for a specific time period annually. There is no water frontage.
  • U - Time Share (with waterfront) : There are multiple owners of the property, each with the right to use a specific unit for a specific time period annually. There is water frontage.
  • W - Property not held in any of these forms of ownership but having water frontage requires a "W" to signify the presence of water frontage.

Property not held in any of these forms of ownership that does not have water frontage requires no waterfront/ownership code.

The following examples of the use of the waterfront/ ownership code in conjunction with the property class code.

A condominium located in a two-story building with eight units and no water frontage, would be coded as 411-C.

A single-family townhouse held in condominium from of ownership and with water frontage would be classified as a 210-D. If the above townhouse were owned in fee simple in an association, it would be coded 210-B.

A piece of land best suited for improvement for residential or seasonal purpose with significant water frontage would be classified as a 311-W.

HOW TO LOCATE THE PROPER PROPERTY TYPE CLASSIFICATION CODE  Top of Page

The New York State Office of Real Property Services has developed a simple and uniform classification system to be used in assessment administration in New York State.

The system of classification consists of numeric codes in nine categories. Each category is composed of divisions, indicated by the second digit, and subdivisions (where required), indicated by a third digit. The nine categories are:

  • 100 - Agricultural - Property used for the production of crops or livestock.
  • 200 - Residential - Property used for human habitation. Living accommodations such as hotels, motels, and apartments are in the Commercial category - 400.
  • 300 - Vacant Land - Property that is not in use, is in temporary use, or lacks permanent improvement.
  • 400 - Commercial - Property used for the sale of goods and/or services.
  • 500 - Recreation & Entertainment - Property used by groups for recreation, amusement, or entertainment.
  • 600 - Community Services - Property used for the well being of the community.
  • 700 - Industrial - Property used for the production and fabrication of durable and nondurable man-made goods.
  • 800 - Public Services - Property used to provide services to the general public.
  • 900 - Wild, Forested, Conservation Lands & Public Parks - Reforested lands, preserves, and private hunting and fishing clubs

Below is part of the coding structure in the Recreation and Entertainment Category. It demonstrates how to decide what code to use when a property is either clearly described or inadequately described.

  • 500 - Recreation and Entertainment (Category)
  • 530 - Amusement Facilities (Division)
  • 531 - Fairgrounds
  • 532 - Amusement Parks (Subdivision)
  • 533 - Game Farms
  • 534 - Social Organizations

The number "0" has been reserved to fill in the coding structure where description of a property is inadequate to assign a code at the division level, subdivision level or where it was not necessary to establish a subdivision level.

A Recreation and Entertainment facility that cannot be classified at a division level, should be coded "500" (category).

An amusement facility that is not a fairground, amusement park, game farm, or a social organization should be coded "530" (division).

A fairground should be coded "531" (subdivision).
