Anyone who comes to the Recorder’s office may make a copy of a public document, including a deed, for $0.25 per page. The Recorder’s Office staff can provide assistance in locating documents within our office. We have provided a list of some of the document types available.
If it is necessary to send a written request for a copy the cost will be $2 per page. Written requests must include the volume and page of the document. The volume and page can be found online at Ohio Land Records. The documents are not viewable, but the owner, type of document, and the description of the property is available to identify each document.
In addition to identifying the document by volume and page, a check or money order for the pages to be copied must be included along with a self addressed stamped envelope. The Recorder’s office is not able to fulfill requests for document copies over the phone or through email.
The Recorder’s Office is happy to provide you with a certified copy of your deed if that is what you need. However, if you simply want a copy of the deed, the cost is still only $0.25 per page. The costs for documents is outlined in the Ohio Revised Code and provided on the Fees page. If you are uncertain whether you need a certified copy it might be beneficial to contact a lawyer.
