Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. Ohio does not have a specific state property transfer law. Deed notices are required for all closed hazardous waste facilities, solid waste landfills, scrap tire disposal areas, and industrial and residual waste landfills. This information is available for public review and is intended to notify future property owners about the history and use of a site.
