NOTICE OF INCREASED RECORDING FEES
DUE TO LEGISLATIVE ACTION (HB 166)

Effective October 17, 2019

Effective Thursday, October 17, 2019, recording fees for most documents will increase by $6.00 due to the passage of HB 166 by the Ohio Legislature.

The new recording fee will be $34.00 for the 1st two pages and $8.00 for each additional page. Half of these recording fees collected are required to be submitted to the state to the credit of the Ohio Housing Trust Fund.

Documents submitted with insufficient fees will be returned unrecorded.

It should be noted, as your Recorder, I opposed this increase for the reason that customers of this office should not be forced to make involuntary contributions to already tax supported nonprofit organizations for which the Ohio Housing Trust distributes.
