Effective July 1, 2001, all UCC’s on chattel property will be filed with the Secretary of State of Ohio. The County Recorder will only accept terminations on previously filed UCC’s.

The new form for filing UCC’s is available on the Secretary of State’s web page.

Any questions you might have on chattel property UCC’s are referred to the Secretary of State at 614-466-2655.

    $12.00 each for terminations on chattel UCC’s already on file in the recorder’s office.

    On termination of UCC’s that were filed against real property, $12.00 plus $4.00 for each name indexed.

  • Searches:
    $20.00 for search (no fee for findings).
