Real Property Transfers and Conveyances
Transfer and identification documents track the transfer of parcels and maintain the Auditor’s parcel numbering system for tax purposes. Under Ohio Law, all real estate transfer-related documents must be presented to the County Auditor before recording. Transfers are done in accordance with the Ohio Revised Code Section 319.203.
Real Estate transfers are subject to two types of fees at the Auditor’s Office: the conveyance fee and the transfer fee.
