The Bellaire Title Office will be permanently closing for several reasons; one reason being that the Northern and Eastern Division Courts will be moving out of this building soon.

Once the courts relocate to the upper building of the former the Health Plan complex in St. Clairsville, the Title Office would be the only tenant in the Bellaire building. Another reason is there’s less of a need plus it’s also short-staffed.

Now there will only be one Title Office in the county; the St. Clairsville location on National Road. It shares a space with the County Board of Elections. The Title Office will be closing for good on Tuesday, Jan. 27.
