The primary responsibility of the County Recorder is to create a complete, accurate and permanent record of every document pertaining to the conveyance and encumbrance of land within the county.  These permanent land records are retained in archival form and made constantly accessible to the public.


  •  In observance of Independence Day our office will be closed Thursday, July 4th. We will re-open Friday, July 5th, 8:00 A.M. to 4:30 P.M.
  • Please be on the lookout for solicitations from Documents Retrieval Service Companies offering to help Lucas County residents acquire a certified copy of their deed for $49.50 to $87.00. Copies of all land records can be purchased from our office for a much smaller fee, often as little as $2.00.
