Defective Concrete and Crumbling Foundation Information


Manchester is one of over 40 municipalities in Connecticut known to have properties built using defective concrete used in building foundations. 

Owners of residential properties that are impacted by defective concrete are entitled to obtain a reduction in their property's assessment through a change in legislation that occurred in 2016.  Manchester has information about how to qualify for that assessment reduction, along with an application at this link:
