Document Formatting Requirements
• A document submitted for recording should consist of one or more pages measuring no larger than 8.5x14 inches.

• 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.

• The document should be on white paper of not less than 20 pound weight with no background color, images, or writing, and should have a clean border of approximately ½ an inch on the top, bottom, and each side.

• The first page should contain a blank space at the top measuring at least 3 inches down. The right half of this space is to be for recording information while the left half is used for certification.

• 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.

Most deeds require a Certificate of Real Estate Value to be submitted. If this is required for a document, a Well Disclosure Certificate should also be submitted. This can be obtained from the Minnesota Department of Health website and can be filed electronically or in person.
