"GUIDELINES FOR CONDUCTING

A PROPERTY SEARCH

IN BUTLER COUNTY, OHIO"

(As of February 2017)

If you only want to know the name of the CURRENT owner of real estate in Butler County Ohio, you may conduct an online search at: http://propertysearch.butlercountyohio.org/PT/forms/htmlframe.aspx?mode=content/home.htm

YES, THIS Requires you to PHYSICALLY GO TO THE RECORDER'S OFFICE...

If you want to

dig...

...into the history of ALL PREVIOUS owners of a particular piece of property,

...then, you are invited to

use the following guide

to uncover the OWNERSHIP HISTORY.

BACKGROUND: People occasionally contact the darrtown.com webmaster with questions about various pieces of property in or around Darrtown. Marvin Russell, a Darrtown native, has frequently volunteered to research the history of various Darrtown properties.

 

On the assumption that it would empower others to conduct their own property searches, if they knew how to do so, the Darrtown.com webmaster asked Marvin to share his approach to conducting a property search in Butler County, Ohio.

 

In response to that request, Marvin provided the guidelines at the right.

1. You will need an accurate address (number and street name) of the property that you wish to research. 2. You may wish to take some means of recording the information that you find during your research. 3. Go to the Butler County Administrative Building at the corner of Riverfront Plaza and High Street (the address is 130 High Street) in Hamilton, Ohio. Parking is available at the rear (north side) of the building. 4. You may enter from the parking lot or you may enter at the front of the building on High Street. 5. Office hours are 8 AM to 4 PM, Monday through Friday. Document recording is available from 8 AM to 3:30 PM. There is a nominal fee for recording. 6. Go to the Recorder’s office, which is located on the second floor. 7. Go to the Customer Service desk for help. Inform the personnel that you wish to look up a certain piece of property and they will assist you. They are very good about helping. They will escort you back to the old books from the early 1800’s, if you want to search that far back in time.
GOOD NEWS!
