Certificate of Real Estate Value
Buyers of real property must file a Certificate of real Estate Value with the County Auditor in the county where the property is located if the sale price or other consideration is more than $1,000 and the deed is a:
- Warranty deed
- Contract for deed
- Quit Claim deed
- Trustee deed
- Executor deed
- Probate deed
If the price is $1,000 or less, you do not have to file a Certificate of Real Estate Value. However, on the deed write “The sale price or other consideration given for this property was $1,000 or less.”
For questions about the Certificate of Real Estate Value form you may contact the Faribault County Auditors/Treasures office at (507)526-6213. Or you may click on the link to the Minnesota Department of Revenue's Certificate of Real Estate.
