ROD Announcement: Easements on FP7s

Ida Williams, the Recorder of Deeds for the District of Columbia, has alerted the DCLTA Board of Directors of a recent change in policy regarding easements and the FP7 (Real Property Recordation and Transfer Tax Form). We have been asked to share the following communication with DCLTA’s membership:

ROD is revising its FP7 form to remove easement as one of the document types requiring the tax return form FP7. Effective immediately [8/2/17] ROD will not require the public to submit the FP7 form with easements (for consideration or not).

When we learn more about the revised FP7 form we will share it with you. In the meantime, please let us know if you have any questions by emailing us at
