Synopsis As Introduced
Creates the Transfer Fee Covenant Act. States legislative findings and declares that transfer fee covenants violate the public policy of favoring the transferability of real property free of unreasonable restraints. Defines transfer, transfer fee, and transfer fee covenant. Provides that a transfer fee covenant or a lien to secure the payment of a transfer fee that is recorded after the effective date is void, unenforceable, and does not run with the title to the real property. Provides that it cannot be presumed that the provisions of this Act mean that a transfer fee covenant or lien recorded before the effective date is valid and enforceable.

House Committee Amendment No. 1
Adds to list of items that are not transfer fees, for purposes of the Act, the following: any fee or other amount payable to an entity exempt from taxation under the Internal Revenue Code whose purpose includes the conservation of land, natural areas, open space, or water areas or the preservation of native plants, animals, biotic communities, or geographic formations located within the same development or within one-half mile of the property to which the transfer fee covenant attaches.
