Due to unforeseen staffing shortages we have found it unfortunate, but necessary, to TEMPORARILY close the Franklin Title Office. However, this closure does not affect the hours of operation for the BMV License Services office next door in any way since it is not operated by the Clerk of Courts. Our Title offices in Lebanon and Mason are open normal hours Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 8AM – 5PM and on Tuesday from 8AM – 6:30PM.
At this time, we are also unable to properly staff any Saturday Title operations, so that has been suspended temporarily.
Thank you for your continued patience during this extraordinary time as we attempt to continue to provide you with excellent customer service while keeping our employees and you, the public, as safe as possible.
Our acceptance of Passport Applications resumes Monday, February 1, 2021, however, we will only be able to process applications in the Lebanon and Mason Title offices. For more information, please click on the Passport icon below.
We have also temporarily suspended our passport photo service, so applicants will have to provide pictures to go with their applications. Walgreens, Walmart, CVS, the UPS Store and AAA may be options for your passport photos.
