46:3-29 Definitions relative to private transfer fees.

2.As used in P.L.2010, c.102 (C.46:3-28 et seq.):

"Transfer" means the sale, gift, conveyance, assignment, inheritance, or other transfer of an ownership interest in real property located in the State of New Jersey.

"Private transfer fee" means a fee or charge required by a private transfer fee obligation and payable upon the transfer of an interest in real property, or payable for the right to make or accept such transfer, regardless of whether the fee or charge is a fixed amount or is determined as a percentage of the value of the property, the purchase price, or other consideration given for the transfer. The following are not private transfer fees for purposes of P.L.2010, c.102 (C.46:3-28 et seq.):

a. (1) Any consideration payable by the grantee to the grantor for the interest in real property being transferred, including any subsequent additional consideration for the property payable by the grantee based upon any subsequent appreciation, development, or sale of the property, provided such additional consideration is payable on a one-time basis only and obligation to make such payment does not bind successors in title to the property. For the purposes of this subsection, an interest in real property may include a separate mineral estate and its appurtenant surface access rights.

(2) Any subsequent additional consideration payable to the grantor of an interest in unimproved real property by the first successor-in-interest to the original grantee, provided that the additional consideration is payable on a one-time basis only and follows the construction of an improvement on the property.
