eRecording

We do not eRecord any documents that require a conveyance.

To eRecord, you must contact one of the following eRecording vendors:

Electronic Documents: eNotarization; eSignatures and "Papering Out"

ORC §147.591 Electronic Documents (http://codes.ohio.gov/orc/147.591)

eNotarizations
See §147.591 (1,2)

§147.591 (3) Papered Out Documents

Please note that a "papered out" document must have a separate original Authenticator Certificate.

The Authenticator Certificate is considered a "papering out" provision. This means that if documents are electronically notarized or online notarized, they may be printed out on paper, have the Authenticator Certificate attached, and then received in our office for recording. The signatures on the document will not be in ink. They are copies. That is why they must have the Authenticator Certificate attached separately after printing to state that they are legitimate.

AUTHENTICATOR CERTIFICATE

I certify and warrant that the foregoing and annexed paper document being presented for record, to which this certification is attached, represents a true, exact, complete, and unaltered copy of the original electronic document. The county offices of the auditor, treasurer, recorder, and others necessary to effectuate the transfer and recording of the instrument shall be entitled to rely on such certification and warranty for all purposes.

Miscellaneous

Documents are recorded in the order they are received.

Rejection of an eRecorded document would be for the same reasons any document would be recorded. See Documents https://recorder.co.geauga.oh.us/Documents/Document-Types-and-Fees.

We accept typed signatures, cursive signatures, and/or one signed by person using their finger or mouse on the computer as long as they are properly notarized and follow the Ohio Revised Code.
