E-Recordings are accepted by our office. Documents that meet all legal and standardization requirements may be e-recorded. Deeds that transfer real property are now being accepted for e-recording by the Auditor, Engineer and Recorder (via Simplifile). Any documents that transfer real estate should still start the transfer process with the Franklin County Auditor.
The Recorder's office does not have their own e-recording platform, but there are a number of private companies that provide e-recording services that are then consolidated and sent to the Recorder. These service companies may charge additional fees.
Companies currently e-recording with Franklin County include CSC Global, ePN, Indecomm Global Services and Simplifile.
The Franklin County Recorder’s Office is accepting documents completed with both electronic and online notarization as long as they meet the requirements set forth by the Ohio Legislature and the Ohio Secretary of State. Please visit the link below and call our office with any additional questions.
