Wisconsin Deed Forms
Create a high quality document online now!
Updated July 12, 2022
A Wisconsin deed is a document that helps to transfer and convey property from a grantor (the seller) to a grantee (the buyer). The form is a simple 2-page document that describes the two (2) parties along with the property and the purchase price (known as ‘consideration’). The form must then signed, by the Grantor(s) only, in front of a Notary Public. The deed may then be brought to the County Register of Deeds along with the filing fee and the Real Estate Transfer Return .
Laws – Chapter 706. Conveyances of Real Property; Recording; Titles
Real Estate Transfer Return (eRETR) – This form must be filed along with any deed recorded in the State of Wisconsin ( See Instructions ).
Recording ( W.S.A. 706.05 ) – Must be filed with the County Register of Deeds in the jurisdiction of the property being conveyed.
Signing ( W.S.A. 706.06 ) – All signatures by the Grantor(s) must be accompanied by the acknowledgment of a notary public.
General Warranty – Provides guaranteed ownership of the property to the Buyer (the Grantee) with no defects on the title.
Quit Claim – Only transfers the implied ownership interest the Seller may have in the property. Does not guarantee title to the Buyer.
Special Warranty – Guarantees that the title does not have any blemishes or defects during the course of the Seller’s ownership period.
Wisconsin Property Search
When completing a deed, the Legal Description needs to be written on the form. Therefore, you will need to pull the deed information from the County it is located. The numbers you want to obtain are the Tax Map/Lot Numbers, Parcel ID (if any), and the Deed Book and Page Numbers.
Step 1 – Go to This Webpage and select your county.
Step 2 – For this example we will use Milwaukee County (click to launch the viewer on the map). When you go to your County or City Assessor you will want to perform a lookup by the Grantor’s name. That will ensure they in fact own the property and be able to find the Legal Description.
Step 3 – When you have found the property you can find the required information including the Parcel Number and the Legal Description. This can be written in the deed to satisfy the Recorder.

State of Wisconsin
Department of revenue, real estate transfer data.
Under state law, a Real Estate Transfer Return (RETR) must be electronically filed (e-filed) with the County Register of Deeds when recording a conveyance of real estate.
RETR information may be used to determine a property's market value. The best indicator of market value is a transfer representing an arm's-length transaction.
Characteristics of an arm's-length sale:
- Property must have been on the open market for a period of time typical of the turnover time for that property type
- Both buyer and seller must be knowledgeable about the real estate market and the uses (present and potential) of the property
- Must be a willing buyer and a willing seller, with neither compelled to act
- Payment for the property must be in cash, or typical of normal financing and payment arrangements for the property type
Not all Real Estate Transfer Returns represents arm's-length sales:
- Examples include: family sales, correction deeds and delinquent tax sales generally are not considered arm's-length transactions. However, with these transactions, you must still file a RETR.
- Note: The Wisconsin Department of Revenue (DOR) is not responsible for the accuracy of the data contained on the RETR, and will not aid in its application or analysis
Search RETR data or Download Historical RETR Data
- Use the Real Estate Transfer Search to locate specific RETRs
- Advanced search options allow you to search by specific information including date range, sale price and location
- Historical sales files list sales submitted by each county at the time of posting (middle of each month) and may not reflect all sales that occurred for the time period selected
- Contact the county where the property is located to confirm the information
- Historical files are large and zipped
- Click the file you want to view
- Open the file and save to your computer (make note of the file name and where you saved it)
- File is saved as a Comma Separated Value (CSV) file
- For historical data older than five years, contact the county register of deeds office where the property is located
Note: DOR is not available to provide technical assistance and support in opening compressed files.

Use of Transfer on Death (TOD) Deeds Broadened Under New Statute
The Governor recently signed 2018 Wisconsin Act 332, which affects a method to transfer real property without going through a probate proceeding known as a transfer on death (“TOD”) deed. The new law gives clients more options to transfer real property without having to go through a probate proceeding.
A TOD deed does not affect the current ownership of the property but essentially functions like a beneficiary designation would on a life insurance policy or retirement account – it designates who is to receive the property after the current owner’s death or upon the last death of multiple owners. Under the previous law, a person could transfer certain interests in real property to a designated beneficiary and avoid a probate proceeding by designating a beneficiary on a TOD deed. The interests in real property that could be transferred on a TOD deed were interests that were (1) solely owned, (2) owned by spouses as survivorship marital property, or (3) owned by two or more persons as joint tenants. However, the prior law did not allow property held as tenants-in-common to be transferred using a TOD deed.
Owning property as joint tenants mean that the last surviving owner receives the entire property. Owning property as tenants-in-common means that at the death of each owner, the deceased owner has the ability to pass his or her interest in the property to his or her successors, often through a probate proceeding.
Under the new section 705.15(1)(m) of the Wisconsin Statutes, a person may designate a TOD beneficiary in any document, not solely in a deed. Further, the law provides that the interests in real property that may be transferred using a TOD document include an interest in real property owned as tenants-in-common and an interest in real property owned by a spouse as marital property without a right of survivorship.
Additionally, the new law requires that a TOD document and any recording fees must be submitted to the register of deeds in the county where the property is located prior to the death of the owner.
Lastly, the new law creates a statute of limitations for claims to recover real property transferred to a beneficiary using a TOD document. Under the bill, such a claim is barred unless a complaint is filed and a lis pendens (a notice of pending action) is filed or recorded within 120 days after the death of the sole owner or the last to die of the multiple owners who executed the TOD document.
One circumstance where the new law may be useful is for the family cottage. In that case, the parents pass the family cottage to children at their deaths. If the intent is for all the children and grandchildren to continue using the cottage (rather than surviving child taking the whole property), then the parents would want to pass the cottage to their children as tenants-in-common so that each child has an ability to pass his or her interest in the cottage to his or her children. Under the new law, each child can designate in a TOD document that his or her interest in the cottage passes to his or her family upon death. However, we often see that having multiple families and multiple generations owning property tends to become unwieldy. Common issues that arise include who is able to use the cottage during holidays? Who pays for repairs? What happens when an owner cannot or will not chip in his or her fair share? If the cottage will continue to stay in the family, usually transferring the property into a trust or LLC that sets out all of the rules of ownership will be a good solution. You should discuss the use of a TOD document with your attorney as part of your overall estate plan.
