Welcome to the Portage County Recorder's Homepage. The County Recorder has the important task of keeping the vital records pertaining to ownership in real estate (land) and to all encumbrances or liens upon it. Without the work of the County Recorder, it would be nearly impossible to purchase land and be assured of a clear title or to lend money with land as security.

Due to an inadvertent error, by the Portage County's Recorder's Office, with our time stamp, documents filed Oct.24, 2013 and Oct 25, 2013 have the incorrect year. The documents have been corrected at our office and have been rescanned to show the corrected year. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused. Bonnie M. Howe, Recorder
