SOUTH DAKOTA RECORDING STATUTE

The recording and deposit of an instrument, proved and certified, are constructive notice of the execution of such instrument to all purchasers or encumbrancers following the recording.

An unrecorded instrument is valid as between the parties to it and those who have notice of it.

GUIDELINES FOR RECORDING

• Any instrument affecting the title to or possession of real property may be recorded as provided by law.

• The execution of an instrument, if it is not duly acknowledged, must, to entitle the grant to be recorded, be proved by a subscribing witness.

• The original signature of the grantor must be present on the document.

• A real estate deed should consist of one or more individual pages measuring no larger than 8.5 x 14 inches and no smaller than 8.5 x 11 inches. Use white paper of at least 20 pound weight. There may not be any sheets attached or affixed to any page that covers up any information or printed material.

• The text may be printed, typewritten, or computer generated in black ink with a font size of at least 10 point. Dates, notarial acknowledgments, signatures, and other items may be completed in black or blue ink if the document is predominantly completed in black ink and if the items completed in blue ink are sufficiently dark.

• At the top of the first page, provide a 3 inch blank margin. The right half of this space will be used by the register of deeds for the placement of recording information. The left half of the margin will be used to show the name, address, and telephone number of the person who prepared the document. This statement can be typed, stamped, or printed. Other document information can also be placed in this section.

• All other margins should be a minimum of 1 inch.

• Immediately below the blank space at the top of the first page, a title should be prominently displayed.

• Every grantee that has a real estate conveyance recorded shall, when the deed is presented for recording, provide the register of deeds with his current mailing address.

• Provide a legal description of the real property. This can be included on the document or as an attachment.


CONVEYANCES

Every grant of an estate in real property is conclusive against the grantor and everyone subsequently claiming under him, except a purchaser or encumbrancer who, in good faith and for a valuable consideration, acquires a title or lien by an instrument that is first duly recorded.

Implied covenants in a warranty deed: A warranty deed that is duly executed as required by law will be a conveyance in fee simple of the premises described to the grantee, his heirs, and assigns, with covenants from the grantor, his heirs, and personal representatives that (a) he is lawfully seized of the premises in fee simple and has good right to convey the same; (b) the premises are free from all encumbrances; (c) he warrants to the grantee, his heirs, and assigns the quiet and peaceable possession thereof; and (d) he will defend the title against all persons who may lawfully claim the same.

The covenants in warranty deed are obligatory upon any grantor, his heirs, and personal representatives as fully and with similar effect as if written at length in the deed.

CERTIFICATE OF REAL ESTATE VALUE

The Certificate of Real Estate Value, as adopted by administrative rule, must be filed with any deed or contract for deed dated after July 1, 1988 used in the purchase, transfer, exchange, or assignment of interest in real property. This must be filed with documents such as warranty deeds, quit claim deeds, grantor’s deeds, sheriff’s deeds, trustee’s deeds, executor’s deeds, administrator’s deeds, mineral deeds, and similar deeds.

Divorce decrees, probate decrees, and easements do not need a Certificate of Real Estate Value.

The completed form must contain the name and address of the buyer and seller, the legal description of the real property, the actual consideration exchanged for the real property, the relationship of the buyer and seller, if any, and the terms of payment if other than payment in full at the time of sale. The Certificate of Value must be filled out completely, signed, and dated.

The box on the form labeled “owner occupied” is optional—if it is completed it must be completed and signed by the buyer only. The “owner occupied” box cannot be signed by an agent of the buyer or anyone else. This is important to complete so the buyer may, if eligible, maintain the classification of owner-occupied on the property and receive the lower property tax rate for that classification of property.
