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 $3,000. 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. To submit the e-CRV, visit this url: https://www.revenue.state.mn.us/electronic-certificate-real-estate-value-ecrv

What is the Minnesota Transfer on Death Deed by Married Sole Owner?

In Minnesota, transfer on death deeds are governed by Minn. Stat. 507.071.

While the statute provides a basic form, as well as overall content requirements, the state authorized the development of uniform conveyance documents for some specific situations. One such situation occurs when a married property owner holds sole title to the real estate he or she wishes to convey with a transfer on death deed. A correctly-completed basic statutory form is valid in most cases, but because the owner's husband or wife may be able to claim spousal interest in the property, these deeds require the spouse to sign a statement releasing any marital rights. Without this release, the non-probate transfer on death may not occur, and the property could revert to the deceased owner's estate for probate distribution instead. To prevent such unintended outcomes, there is a special deed for this circumstance.

This transfer on death deed form is for use ONLY by married grantor owners who are the sole spouse on the property's title.

As with other transfer on death deeds, this form must be executed and RECORDED during the grantor owner's lifetime.
