Mercer County Recorder


As of August 1, 2005, the offices of Auditor, Tax Map, and Recorder no longer accept deeds and other instruments of conveyance by mail.  They must be hand delivered to each department. It is the individual’s responsibility to make sure each instrument has the appropriate filing stamps from each county office. 

In addition to in person recordings our office offers eRecording for conveyances through Simplifile. https://simplifile.com   

Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.  We look forward to serving you!


About the Recorder’s Office

In Ohio, it is the County Recorder who has the important and indispensable task of keeping the vital records pertaining to ownership in real estate (land) and to all encumbrances or liens upon it.

Without the work of the County Recorder in recording, safekeeping, and organizing all documents in a competent and logical manner, it would be nearly impossible to purchase land and be assured of a clear title or to lend money with land as security.
