Well Disclosure Certificates

No Well on Property
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."
Well(s) on Property
If there is a well(s) located on the property, a completed Well Disclosure Certificate must accompany the transferring document. Or 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."
