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.

Hardin County will only accept a conveyance by mail if the Auditor's stamp is already on the document. The Recorder's Office will not walk a conveyance through the map department and Auditor's office.
