Champaign County Conveyance Standards
The Champaign County Conveyance Standards were adopted on October 1, 2001. As directed by sections 315.251, 319.203, and
other sections of the Ohio Revised Code, and to provide a consistent method of review, the following standards are hereby adopted to govern the conveyance of real property to be transferred on the tax list of
Champaign County and survey plats and descriptions of real property to be provided in conjunction with such conveyances.
The intent of these standards is to insure proper and accurate descriptions of property, to correct any errors that are
evident, and to insure that property is accurately described for tax purposes. It is understood that all situations cannot be covered by these requirements and when situations not covered arise they will be
handled as special cases and will be interpreted by the County Engineer’s Office and the County Auditor’s Office.
Authors of instruments of conveyance in which the legal description of the most recent conveyance does not carry a prior
County Engineer approval stamp are strongly encouraged to submit descriptions to be reviewed by the County Engineer prior to the anticipated date of conveyance.
While we understand it would require additional time for the document to be processed, we find it is necessary to give ample time for the review. This procedure will help avoid delays and allow time for any corrections that are necessary. Documents will be reviewed on a “first in, first out” basis and will not be subject to any deadlines or closing dates.
