Recorded Documents

The Standardization of Forms law has changed. You may use the Recorded Document Search or call the Recorders Public Information Department at 216-443-7300 for further details.

This site is provided to allow the citizens of Cuyahoga County, and the world, access to information housed at our office. Here you will find data on all the documents filed at the Recorder's office from 1810 to present.

The use of automatic extraction methods from this site is considered abusive. If you or your company utilizes this method you may be banned without notice.



The Cuyahoga County Transfer & Recording office has suspended the acceptance of e-recordings for the immediate future.

The existing processes provided by the major E-Recording vendors did not account for the 300% increase in electronic submissions over this past year due to the pandemic. We are in the process of implementing a new Recording software solution which will streamline both E-recordings and traditional filings into a single efficient platform. We are hoping to have this system launched by January of 2023.

During this transition, all documents must be submitted either through US Mail/FedEx/UPS or in person at our office located at 2079 East 9th, Street (Room 4-100) Cleveland, OH 44115. We apologize for the inconvenience; however, the new system will provide many new & exciting services as listed below.

  • Same day notifications of E-Recordings
  • Property fraud notifications
  • Advanced OCR (Optical character recognition) search capability
  • 24 Hour turnaround for the indexing of all documents

Thank you for your patience and understanding while we work to complete this project, which will drastically improve our services.
