If a sheriff deed was recorded with the wrong parcel number typed on it is it a valid enforceable instrument?

Columbus, OH |

If the legal description is correct and the parcel number is wrong can the sheriff evict us?

  1. Best answer

    The PPN is a number assigned and used by the county auditor for purposes of taxation
    It is not an identifier for the parcel


  2. That is what is called a scrivner's error. It could be corrected and enforced.


  3. Yes it is still valid and enforceable. The permanent parcel number is an aid to the governmental authorities.

    Attorney Sternberg is admitted to the practice of law only in the State of Ohio. His answering of this question does not constitute an attorney client relationship, nor can his answer be relied on since the question does not permit Attorney Sternberg to seek additional information necessary to render an legal opinion.
