New Real Estate Transfer Procedure

Anyone who sells or transfers real estate must present the original deed at the Finance Department counter for a Real Estate Transfer Stamp to be issued. All water, sewer, garbage fees and penalties related thereto must be paid in full before a Real Estate Transfer Stamp is issued onto the original deed. The requirement to obtain a real estate transfer stamp applies to all property owners in Wheeling including condominium owners who pay for water, sewer and garbage service indirectly through their monthly assessments. Note: This requirement also applies to re-finance, quit claim deeds, and transfer of ownership to a trust. (Section 15.10 of the Wheeling Municipal Code)
