How to use and Search recommendations

Please select one of the available ways to search (Address, Owner, Permit ID (Sewage Permit Number), or Parcel Number) by checking the box. Click "Search" below and navigate to the system you are seeking information on from the records that appear. If your search returns no results, find the parcel number where the system is installed on using the Lorain County Auditor's database here: http://www.loraincountyauditor.com/gis/ Due to spelling differences and inconsistent use of street suffixes and prefixes over the last 50 years, it is sometimes best to search for the address number only. The system will locate all properties with that address, from which a selection can be made. Also note that sometimes addresses change. If you are aware of previous addresses for the property, try searching with these numbers.
