Geauga County Recorder, Sharon C. Gingerich; Probate/Juvenile Court Judge, Tim Grendell; and local attorneys offer a deed review program called The Good Deeds Program to help Geauga County residents better understand probate issues regarding property transfers.
The Program is a volunteer deed review process for Geauga County homeowners. It is a county-wide effort to help Geauga residents (1) identify whether the form of their present deed will require transfer through the Probate Court upon death; and (2) to consider less expensive and less time-consuming alternatives to a probate transfer.
When you purchased your home, you received your original deed with your paperwork. If you cannot find your deed, you will be given a copy at the presentation. When you call Cheryl for a reservation, please have the street address of your home or the volume and page of your deed if you want a copy of your deed. The volume and page number can be found on the main page of this website under AVA on-line indexes.
After the presentation, attorneys will be available to privately discuss your estate matters.
Please note: if County Offices are closed due to weather issues, the Program will be cancelled. If the weather is threatening, please call the Court or the Recorder prior to 4:00 p.m. to confirm. See contact information below.
For reservations or to find out when the next Program is scheduled, contact Cheryl Koncler, Geauga County Probate/Juvenile Court at (440) 279-1840 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
It is our pleasure to offer this service to the residents of Geauga County.
