If a transferring document requires a Certificate of Real Estate Value, well information is also required. If there are no wells on the property, the transfer document must contain a statement attesting to this fact, such as:
"The seller certifies that the seller does not know of any wells on the described real property."
If there is a well(s) located on the property, a completed Well Disclosure Certificate must accompany the transferring document.
If the seller can make the following statement on the transferring document, a Well Disclosure Certificate is not needed:
"I am familiar with the property described in this instrument and I certify that the status and the number of wells on the described real property have not changed since the last previously filed well disclosure certificate."
To find out if a previously filed Well Certificate is on file with the Minnesota Department of Health, call 800-383-9808 from MN, or 651-201-4587 outside MN.
