Buyer’s Affidavit & Flood Insurance

About Deed Transfer Affidavits

When purchasing a property in the City of Newark, a Deed Transfer Affidavit, sometimes called a Zoning Certificate is required.  Its purpose is to inform new homeowners of the property’s zoning and whether or not it is within the 100 Year Floodplain.  To submit a request for this form, see the link on the left or below. You will need to provide the address of the property, the name or names that will be on the property deed, and an email address where you can be reached.

About Flood Insurance

While Newark is not prone to tropical storms or hurricanes, any severe storm can produce torrential rains and flooding.  If your property is located within or near the designated 100 Year floodplain, you may be required to purchase flood insurance.  For more information on the Flood Plain, see the link on the left.
