Well Disclosure Certificates

No Well on Property

If a transferring document requires an Electronic 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 along with the filing fee. A Well Disclosure Certificate is not needed if the seller can make the following statement on the transferring document:  "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."
