BILL SUMMARY for HB16-1145



SENATE COMMITTEE ON LOCAL GOVERNMENT


Votes: View--> Action Taken:
Refer House Bill 16-1145 to the Committee of the W PASS







03:03 PM -- HB 16-1145



Senator Tate, prime sponsor, described the provisions of House Bill 16-1145 concerning documentary fees for residential real property. The reengrossed bill clarifies that the filing fee for a residential real property conveyance is calculated based on the total sales price, as listed on the conveyance document. If there is no amount listed, or the amount is less than $500 and there is related documentation, then the total sales price on the declaration form is used to determine the filing fee. The bill also stipulates that, for the purposes of determining a filing fee, a property is assumed to be residential property unless otherwise indicated as either commercial or industrial property. Filing fees for commercial or industrial conveyance documents are determined by the total sales price adjusted to account for other personal property included in the real estate transaction (personal property considerations).
