Excess Proceeds & Unclaimed Funds

Excess Proceeds

Sheriff's Sales may result in additional monies not needed to pay off debts or liens on a property. These overages are called excess proceeds. Additional information regarding a court record can be found by searching the case number or name on the Clerk of Courts' website

Unclaimed Funds

Unclaimed funds held by the county include vendor payments, property tax refunds, jury/witness fees, and lost heir accounts. The State of Ohio also maintains a listing of unclaimed funds.
