Hi Francisca, your home value SHOULD NOT be reassessed to current market value.

Technically, you needed to notify the County when the first property was no longer your principal residence. According to this Q&A Orange County website:

"If you do not own and occupy your home as your principal place of residence, you must cancel your Homeowner's Exemption. You can cancel the exemption by writing to our office, or using the termination form included with your property tax bill. Please let us know the date you moved, and provide your new mailing address."

Also, while not the same County, you will note that the Homeowners Exemption removal form of this other CA County indicates penalties may be levied via California Revenue and Taxation Code Section 531.6

Given that the exemption only covers $7000 of value, and that penalties can accrue, you may want to remove the exemption sooner than later.

Best, Steve

Hello Shan,
As a lifelong resident and Realtor in Norwalk, I can certainly help you. For the most part, East Norwalk and West Norwalk are good areas, whereas areas in South Norwalk and downtown (central) Norwalk have some areas better than others. As a single woman, Norwalk is a great place to live. The downtown area of South Norwalk (SoNo) has been renovated and is just wonderful. The Washington Street area and the immediate surrounding streets are fabulous. The area offers plenty of restaurants, clubs, shops, museums and you can walk to the train station or Long Island Sound. Easy comute to I-95 & the Merritt Parkway as well.
East Norwalk is an area of Norwalk unto itself. It is the beach area and is pretty self contained. A bit quieter than South Norwalk, offering everything that South Norwalk offers, but less commercial. Also very convenient to highways, shops and trains.
I hope this has helped you and if I can be of further help, please feel free to contact me.
It really all depends on your personal preferences, as well as your pocketbook! If you provide additional information, I could narrow your search a bit more.
Welcome to Norwalk!

Hi Eugene,
Linden Street is located in an area of Norwalk that is an ideal commuter location. In the later 70's, and early 80's, several condominium developments were constructed. They are all quite nice, some nicer than others, but rest assured, it is a great area to rent in and most convenient to everything. LInden Street runs between Route 7 and West Rocks Road, which is the Cranbury are of Norwalk. If I can be of further assistance, please feel free to contact me either by email or telephone. I specialize in the Norwalk marketplace and would welcome any questions you may have about the area, or help you to find a rental if you would like.
Kindest regards,
