Fiscal Officer notifies property owners of Deed Scam - again
The Fiscal Office has announced that many companies are researching public records and writing to homeowners regarding purchasing a certified deed from them. Identified companies include State Record Retrieval Board and Property Transfer Service.
If you get a letter telling you to pay money to obtain a copy of your property deed, don’t pay. You do not have to use a private company to obtain a certified copy of the deed to your home.
You should have received a copy of your original deed shortly after the closing of your home. If you cannot find your deed, our office can provide a copy.

You can also mail a request. The cost of the copy is $4 as required by Ohio Revised Code; add $1.00 if you want the copy certified. Include a stamped, self-addressed envelope with your request. For more information call 330-643-2720.
