Ohio Real Estate Law: Electronic recording has arrived

The day many of us had anticipated in real estate transactions has arrived: Electronic filing of real estate documents.

Hamilton County Auditor Dusty Rhodes, Hamilton County Recorder Norbert Nadel and Hamilton County Engineer Ted Hubbard have collaborated to allow — starting Wednesday, February 7, 2018 — for recording of deeds and other instruments conveying property ownership to be filed completely online using the web portal at Simplifile.com.

Warren County has allowed for electronic recording for some time.

  • The Hamilton County Recorder’s Office has a instruction guides here and here.
  • Warren County’s information is here.

The remarkable advancement eliminates the need for a trip to the auditor’s and recorder’s offices to file a broad variety of recorded real estate instruments.
