Changes to Your Property?
- If you need to remove your Homestead Exemption because your property no longer qualifies, you must notify the Office of Property Assessment (OPA) within 45 days of the change.
Complete the Homestead Exemption Removal/Change form for either purpose.
- Or if you need to change the percentage of your property used for something other than your primary residence, such as a business or rental property, you must also notify the OPA.
For cooperative (co-op) properties (when people own and operate the building where they live, but do not own individual units—forming a cooperative corporation), in addition to submitting a single Homestead Exemption application (one per OPA account number), a Homestead Exemption Co-op form must also be submitted. This form must be signed by an owner-occupant from each eligible unit. Contact the OPA at 215-686-9200 to request this form.
