Preliminary Change of Ownership

Documentary Transfer Tax

If there is a consideration, or anything of value, given in order to transfer real property, a documentary transfer tax may be due at the rate of $0.55 cents for each $500 (or fractional part thereof) when the net consideration or value exceeds $100. This rate is exclusive of the value of any lien or encumbrance remaining thereon at the time of the transfer.

For More Information

The above fees are in addition to the county recorder's basic recording fees. For more information about deeds and fees, please email the recorder's office at (530) 458-0500.
