Property Transfer


Whenever a residential or commercial property transfers ownership in the City of Trenton, a Property Transfer Affidavit Form must be filed within 45 days of the transfer in the Assessor’s office. If it is not filed in a timely manner, the property owner is subject to a penalty.

The assessor will review this form to ensure the property is assessed properly and given the correct taxable value for the year following the transfer of property.

The property transfer affidavit does change the name and mailing address on the tax bill itself.
