How to Identify the Legal Titled Owners in Your Association By Magdalena E. Myers, Esq.

Ohio community associations are required to keep a current list of titled owners.  This list is used to provide notice for upcoming annual meetings and notice of the next year’s annual budget.

In order to properly identify the current titled owners in your community, the board should check the county’s records for the most up to date owner of each property.  Most county auditor’s sites will allow you to search by property address, which should provide the most recent owner’s information.  In some instances, you may need to also check the county recorder’s site to verify the information on the deed.  The board can then use the results of the search to keep a list of current owners.  

While the association should be informed when properties sell, we recommend updating your owner’s roster annually.
