5301.46 Assignment, release, or cancellation of interest made by separate instrument to contain description.

(A) As used in this section, "separate instrument" means an instrument other than the writing in which was created the interest in real property that is being assigned, released, or canceled.

(B) In any county that maintains sectional indexes pursuant to section 317.20 of the Revised Code, each assignment, release, or cancellation of an interest in real property that is made by a separate instrument shall contain a description of the real property that is subject to the interest sufficient to enable the county recorder to index the assignment, release, or cancellation correctly, and the description shall include all of the following:

(1) The permanent parcel number, if there is one, for the real property;

(2) The section, range, tract, subdivision, addition, lot, quarter, and municipal corporation, town, or township associated with the real property.

(C) If division (B) of this section requires a description of the subject real property to be contained in an assignment, release, or cancellation of an interest in real property that is made by a separate instrument, the omission in the assignment, release, or cancellation of any part of the description does not invalidate that instrument.
