NOTICE OF POLICY CHANGE
Beginning Tuesday, September 3rd, 2019

The Van Wert County Recorder’s Office will no longer give cash or change back for checks written over the amount of the recording fee. This includes the fifty cent per parcel fee that goes to the Auditor’s office. The Auditor’s fees are separate from ours and can no longer be added to the check payable to the Recorder. If you pay with cash, you must also have the exact amount with you.

Attention Veterans!
Ohio Law empowers the County Recorder to record your discharge (DD 214) at no charge, but only if you request it. Please stop by our office for more information.
