About Buyer’s Affidavit


The City Zoning Code requires that all purchasers of property in the City of Newark must visit the Planning and Development Department on the second floor of the Newark Municipal Building and sign a statement called a “Deed Transfer Affidavit.” Our office hours are Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Deed Transfer Affidavit


This statement certifies that the purchaser has been told about the zoning of the property being acquired, zoning of adjacent land, and, if applicable, the location of the 100 year floodplain in relationship to the property.
