Recording Your Real Estate Documents
The Recorder accepts for recording those documents relating to real property transactions. In order for these documents to be accepted by our Recording Services Department, they must meet those requirements set by the ORC. Please review the Real Estate Recording Guide to ensure your document meets these requirements.
To record your document, you may visit the Recorder's Office or file through the mail. We ask that you include a self-addressed stamped envelope or the Recorder's Office will charge you postage to return the original document. The method of payment for all document filings or copies is by cash, check, money order or credit/debit card. There is an additional $2 convenience fee if you are using a credit/debit card. Please make your check or money order payable to "Franklin County Recorder." Checks payable to second or third parties will not be accepted. Please click here for a complete list of fees.
