Sorry for the inconvenience – but we will get through this!

From my phone conversation with the recorder’s office this morning, the following is the procedure to be followed at the present time due to the closing of the courthouse:

1. They will mail any documents they have to anyone who has still has recordings there that have not been picked up or already mailed, as well as any documents they now receive by mail, once they are recorded.

2. Any documents that need recorded that require transfer or approval by the auditor’s office are to be mailed to the auditor, and they will take them down to the recorder for recording.

3. The Auditor’s mailing address is 1 E. Main St., Logan, OH 43138. Since they do not have a PO Box, they are to be sent there. The postal carrier will be allowed to bring mail to the courthouse and put it in a box downstairs for the various offices.

4. Any documents that do NOT require a transfer of title or approval by the Auditor, such as mortgages, mortgage releases, etc., can be mailed directly to the recorder at PO Box 949, Logan, OH 43138.

5. The recorder’s office will cover the cost of postage to return documents to us, since we would have otherwise picked them up for free, but it would be very helpful to provide them with the return envelope at least.

6. If we need copies of documents, they will fax them to us. The cost for documents from the books will remain $2.00 per page, but if they are copying and faxing something that is in the computer only, instead of charging $2.00 per page as they now do, those will be just the $0.25 (25 cents) per page, since we can’t come print them ourselves.

NO ONE, including attorneys, are allowed in the office at this time.
