Washington County endorses standard real estate filing fee



Real estate filing fees will now be uniform across the state of Minnesota. The legislators passed the Recorders Fee bill this session and it became effective on July 1. State standardization was the goal of this bill.

The basic fee for all estate-related document filings is $46. The number of pages of a document is no longer an extra charge. Nor is there an additional charge for non-standard documents.

The law also indicates there will be no add-on fees. For copies of the new fee schedule, call 430-6755 or visit the Washington County Web site at www.co.washington.mn.us.
