The County Recorder has the important and indispensable task of keeping the vital records pertaining to ownership in real estate (land) and to all encumbrances or liens upon it. Without the work of the County Recorder, it would be nearly impossible to purchase land and be assured of a clear title or to lend money with land as security.
Notice of statewide recording fee changes due to legislative action

Half of all recording fees collected are required to be submitted to the state to the credit of the Ohio Housing Trust Fund.
