Termination of Decedent’s Interest

The legislature passed and Governor Tony Evers signed Act 127 earlier this week with a publication date of March 4, 2020. This law relates to obtaining evidence of the termination of certain property of a decedent. This law requires the person providing the termination of the decedent’s property interest to verify, under oath, the correctness of the information provided to the Register of Deeds.

This new law not only removes the requirement to provide a certified death certificate but also allows the termination of decedent’s interest (HT-110) to be electronically recorded.

The termination of decedent’s interest form and updated instructions are on the Wisconsin Register of Deeds website at wrdaonline.org.

If anyone has any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to our office. Thank you.

What we do for Milwaukee County.

The Office of the Register of Deeds (noted often hereafter, as ROD) was established in Wisconsin in 1836. Before that, land registration was handled by the Register in Probate. The 1848 Wisconsin Constitution established the ROD as a permanent office of the county-level governmental structure. Each of our 72 counties has an ROD. We are the largest office in the state, employing roughly 25 people who process thousands of documents each year. ​ We are a revenue generating office for Milwaukee County.

The ROD files, records, and issues instruments and documents of significance both to the community as a whole and to its individual citizens. Vital records document the span of our lives from birth to death. Land records documenting title in Wisconsin are maintained. The office also maintains land records documenting title to over $549.5 billion in real property in Wisconsin. ​ During the past 150+ years the Register of Deeds office has utilized advanced technology to handle the increasing work load. From quill pens to computerized indexes to internet -accessible documents to electronic filing, these advancements have allowed us to provide a higher level of service to our customers during tough budget constraints.

We are the official County repository for Real estate records (deeds, land contract, mortgages, etc.), Vital records (birth, death, marriage, domestic partnership and military discharges).

We also, provide safe archival storage and convenient access to these public records. Implement statutory changes, system modernization, program and procedure evaluation and staff development to assure a high level of service to Milwaukee County residents.
