CONSIDERATION CERTIFICATION

A statement of consideration should be on almost all deeds submitted for recording. The Statement shall be sworn and notarized by both parties as to the true consideration in the deed. A Statement of Consideration is NOT required on the following deeds:

• A deed conveying only utility easements.

• Deeds which transfer property through a court action pursuant to divorce
proceedings.

In the case of a transfer other than by gift, or with nominal or no consideration, the consideration reflected in the deed is the full consideration paid for the property. In the case of a transfer by gift, or with nominal or no consideration, it should be stated that the transfer is by gift and should set forth the estimated fair cash value of the property.

In the case of an exchange of properties, the fair cash value of the property being exchanged shall be stated in the body of the deed. In the event of a transfer by will or under the laws of intestate succession, the personal representative of the estate, prior to closing out the estate, shall file an affidavit with the county clerk.

Deeds of nominal or no consideration and deeds of gift require the statement stating the fair market value of the property.

Even though some documents do not require a consideration certificate, transfer tax is still due at the time of recording.
