Comprehensive comp sheets, ratio analysis and a CAMA valuation sheet that lists all items on a property and the dollar results of each component help automate the document management process.

The Govern Personal Property module is designed to accommodate the needs of jurisdictions and users like Tax Collectors and Assessors when cataloging and assessing the value of any property or business that is deemed "personal" or "tangible" property and can be moved without damage to itself or the real estate (e.g. equipment, furniture, supplies, machinery, livestock). Within this module, personal property inventories can be entered as line items and quickly accessed for calculations and flexible billing. All information is recorded within the Personal Property Assessment function, which stores general information such as business name, address, account number, as well as inventory, assessment and tax details.
The backbone of the Govern Community Development Suite is the Property Information module. It lets users see all current and past activities on any given parcel of land. Through the Property Information module, users with appropriate access rights can also create, add, maintain or track unlimited addresses, ownerships and occupant data as well as property-related variable and structure information for each land parcel. Users can also subdivide (Split) and consolidate (Merge) parcel records and track the history of parent parcels after subdivisions and consolidations. Combined with GIS data, the Property Information module provides a powerful inventory of your organization's parcel base.
