The Sheriff's Office does not have keys for properties being sold. The bank or lending company should be contacted with questions about an inspection of the property. Questions about utilities should be directed to the company providing services.
Most appraisals of properties were completed without an interior inspection. The Sheriff's Office nor the appraisers are responsible for the condition of the property at the time the purchaser takes possession.
Recent changes in Legislation may require a purchaser to obtain a survey prior to recording a deed. See Ohio Revised Code Section 315.251. The cost of the survey shall be at the purchaser's expense. If you have any questions relative to the new law, it is strongly recommended that you contact your attorney.
