There is no simple yes or no answer to this- it varies from grant to grant. This is a subject you should speak to your loan agent or mortgage broker about, as they are best suited to determine what answer applies to the specific grants you qualify for.... more
A sewer betterment assessment is a tax that can be assessed by municipalities to properties that have been "bettered" by the construction of a public sewer. Service by a public sewer is an improvement over on-site wastewater disposal (i.e. septic systems, etc.). Therefore, when a municipality constructs public sewers, the value of those properties abutting the sewer line are said to have been improved or "bettered".
Hope this helps.
