GUIDELINES FOR CONDUCTING A PROPERTY SEARCH

IN BUTLER COUNTY, OHIO

(As of February 2017)

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 following guidelines.

 1. You will need an accurate address (number and 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. 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. 4. Parking is available at the rear (north side) of the building. 5. You may enter from the parking lot or you may enter at the front of the building on High Street. 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.
