How often do I have to apply for the homestead exclusion?
After the initial approval, the homestead classification will remain until the property is sold or the owner or the qualifying relative no longer uses it as a primary place of residence. The owner must notify the assessor within 30 days of any change in homestead status, i.e. the home sells, renters move in, relatives move out, etc. Upon the sale of the property, a Certificate of Real Estate Value must be filed with the county auditor as required under Minnesota Statute 272.115
