Minnesota - Anoka County Recorder Information

The Public Service Counter operates as the combined offices of the County Auditor, Treasurer, Recorder, Assessor and Vital Statistics. The area reviews documents to be filed in the real estate records of Anoka County for acceptance and processes funds for document recording.

Recording Fees

The fee to record a standard document is $46.

A residue certificate of title (Torrens) is $40.

An exchange of certificate of title (Torrens) is $20 for each certificate cancelled and $20 for each certificate issued.

A condition of title (Torrens) is $50.

A Well Certificate is $50 to file.

The state deed tax is $0.0033 of the net consideration exceeding $500. The rate is $1.65 when the consideration is less than $500. There is a $5 conservation fund fee collected on each deed and mortgage where deed or mortgage registration tax is required to be paid. If the mortgage registration tax or state deed tax is paid in another county, the $5 conservation fee is still due in Anoka County.

On all deeds and mortgages where state deed tax and state mortgage registry taxes are due, there is also a state mandated $5 agricultural preservation fee. This fee should be included in either the state deed tax or state mortgage registry tax fee and not in the recording fee.

Notary fees are $1 per person and per document.

* The text of the document shall be printed, typewritten, or computer generated in black ink and a font size of at least 8 point.

* No additional sheets shall be attached or affixed to any page that covers up information or printed material.

* At the top of the first page, immediately below the 3 inch margin, a document title should be given.

* To accommodate the margin and first page requirements, an administrative page may be used. This will result in extra fees.

* Deeds submitted for recording must include the date of execution; the names of the grantor and grantee, a complete legal description of the real property, a proper acknowledgment, and a "drafted by" statement, if it is notarized in Minnesota. If applicable, a deed may also need a document reference number if referring to a previously recorded document.

* The "drafted by" statement should be given in substantially the following form: "This instrument was drafted by NAME and ADDRESS."

* The name and address of the person to whom tax statements should be sent is required to be on the deed. This can be given in the following form: "Tax statements for the real property described in this instrument should be sent to (legal name of grantee) and (residential or business address of grantee)."

* A grantee's statement is required on all deeds. This should include the grantee's name and address.

THE NEW eCRV: As of October 2014, transfer deeds require submission of an electronic Certificate of Real Estate Value (CRV).
* Submitters fill in the online eCRV form and receive an eCRV ID number.
* They must reference this eCRV ID number when presenting the deed to the county.
* Counties view eCRV data online, verify, and add additional information. They may also download or upload data as needed.
* Paper copies are no longer accepted.

WELL DISCLOSURE CERTIFICATE: Prior to signing an agreement to sell or transfer real property, the seller must always disclose in writing (well disclosure statement) the location and status of all wells on the property to the buyer, along with the legal description and county of the property, and a sketch map showing the location of each well or indicate there are no wells on the property.

A Well Disclosure Certificate form can be obtained under supplemental forms on this site or from the Minnesota Department of Health website; it can be filed electronically or in person. The certificate number must be stated on the transfer document.
