Cuyahoga County Fiscal Officer Announces a Further Delay in Recordings

Topics: Real Estate



The Cuyahoga County (Ohio) Recorder’s office has been running several weeks behind in processing recordings of instruments such as deeds, mortgages, and mortgage releases.  
 
The County’s Fiscal Officer has now advised that as a result of short-staffing due to COVID-19, it will not accept any new e-recording packages through February 23, 2021, and that any new e-recording packages during that time will be rejected.  
 
A party seeking to submit an instrument for recording in the Cuyahoga County Recorder’s office through February 23, 2021, must access the Fiscal Officer’s website, fiscalofficer.cuyahogacounty.us, to register for an appointment to meet in person with a staff member. 
 
The Cuyahoga County Clerk of Courts office and court filings are not affected.
