Deed Transfers

General Information

Under Ohio Law, all real estate transfer documents must be presented to the County Auditor prior to being recorded. The Deed Transfer Department transfers the owner’s name and address on the real estate tax list and duplicate.

The department also collects the transfer tax/ conveyance fee ($4.00 per $1,000 of sale price) and the transfer fee ($.50 per parcel).

This information, formerly typed on Transfer Cards, is entered with computers for instant retrieval and posting. This “full disclosure” of sales transaction information forms the basis for the fair market value system of property taxation and “opens” all market based information to the general public.

Please Note: If your check is returned unpaid for nonsufficient funds (NSF), your account will be debited electronically for both the face amount of the check plus applicable returned check and collections fees by ECOLLECT, LLC.
