Certificate of Real Estate Value

Certificate of Real Estate Value

Buyers of real property must file this form if its sale price (or other consideration) is more than $1,000. Effective October 1, 2014, the Minnesota Department of Revenue will no longer accept the paper Certificate of Real Estate Value (CRV). Instead, the e-CRV is being implemented as an electronic replacement to the four-part paper CRV form. Transfer documents almost all require the electronic CRV and, if submitted with a paper CRV, will be rejected and required to be resubmitted with an e-CRV. Please consult the guidelines posted here for a specific list of documents.

What is the Minnesota Affidavit of Identity and Survivorship?

Minnesota allows two or more people to share ownership of real estate as joint tenants. Unlike tenants in common, who each own individual portions of the property, joint tenants share equal parts of the undivided whole property. As a result, if one joint tenant dies, his/her rights are distributed evenly amongst the surviving joint tenants. Note that joint tenancy property passes outside of probate, so it does not become part of the decedent's estate.

To complete the transfer of ownership rights, the surviving joint tenant or tenants should execute an affidavit of identity and survivorship, based on Minnesota Form 50.2.2. The affidavit references the recorded deed where the joint tenants gained the property rights, and also requires a certified copy of the decedent's death certificate. Record the affidavit and its supporting documents in the office responsible for maintaining property records for the county where the land is located.

After recording the affidavit, the deceased joint tenant no longer holds any property rights, but his/her name will still appear as an owner in the records. To actually remove that name, the remaining joint tenant(s) should execute a new deed listing all original joint tenants as grantors, but identifying the deceased individual and including a certified copy of the death certificate. Name only the surviving tenants as grantees. After filing the new deed, the property records should only show the remaining owners.

Review: I liked having the forms. Some may need to know they can look at the legal Description from online county records, then type up in Word document line by line, the degree sign in Word program is achieved by using alt and 248 on number pad. Then on the form page one write SEE Exibit A and title your Word program description as Exibit A. Goes without saying the legal description should be looked over many times and it is easier to do so if you format your Word the same lineage as the legal description online which is usually not text which is why you have to retype it.
