Sometimes legislation is just a little “tidying up.” That is a description given by Rep. Gail Kulick Jackson (DFL-Milaca) to a new law she sponsors with Sen. Ron Latz (DFL-St. Louis Park).

Signed by Gov. Tim Pawlenty April 30, the law makes technical changes to various real estate deed provisions. It has varying effective dates.

Specifically the law addresses 2008 changes to a statute regarding transfer of death deeds, and adds some specificity. It clarifies that upon the death of a property owner, an affidavit must include the name and mailing address of the person to whom future property tax statements should be sent.

The law also makes changes in the certificate of title issued by the county registrar for common interest communities, such as condominiums, townhouses or planned community.
