WE ARE STILL OPEN WITH BUSINESS AS USUAL. You will have to have your temperature taken before entering the building.

EFFECTIVE October 17, 2019, recording fees for most documents will increase by $6.00 due to the passage of HB 166 by the Ohio Legislature.

The new recording fee will be $34.00 for the first two pages and $8.00 for each additional page. Half of all recording fees collected are required to be submitted to the state to the credit of the Ohio Housing Trust Fund. If you have any questions or want additional information about this fee increase please contact the office.

WE ARE NOW ACCEPTING eRECORDINGS! Starting December 1, 2015 the office started accepting documents from two eRecording vendors, Corporation Service Company (CSC) and Simplifile. For more information please visit CSC at, 866-652-0111, or or Simplifile at If you have any additional questions about eRecording please contact the office.

Currently, only our indexes can be searched on-line. PLAT IMAGES are available and can be viewed and printed from the website. We are still in the process of redacting personal information (social security numbers, etc.) from all other recorded documents before those will be available on-line. Your understanding in this matter is greatly appreciated.

As always the staff in the office is here to assist you in any way they can. So if you have questions or concerns please feel free to contact a friendly, knowledgable staff member or me directly at

Thank you,
