Recorder

Responsibilities

In Ohio, it is the Fulton 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.

The County Recorder maintains permanent land records, retains them in archival form, and makes them constantly accessible to the public.
