In this paper, the ferroic properties of polycrystalline LuFe2O4 samples were carefully investigated, and a dissimilar charge ordered state was identified. Strong dielectric dispersion, between 350 K and 225 K; the formation of cluster glass magnetic phases in the same temperature range; and the existence of a ferrimagnetic transition at 230 K indicate the coupling between the ferroelectric and the magnetic orders. Mossbauer spectroscopic investigations, at room temperature, revealed unbalanced contributions of the ferric and ferrous iron ions to the charge ordered state.
