Important Notice - eRecording Submission and Online Document Search Site Maintenance -

On Wednesday, December 17 from 7:00 p.m. to 12:00 a.m. PST Snohomish County will upgrade components of its website.  During this time the eRecording submission and the online document search site will be unavailable for up to 90 minutes at a time.  Services should be completely restored and available after midnight. 

Customers with specific concerns can contact Recording Supervisor Marianne Ellingsen at 425-388-3055 during normal business hours.
The Recording Division is responsible for recording real property transactions (deeds, mortgages, real estate contracts, liens, and releases); recording plats and surveys; issuing and recording marriage licenses; microfilming and indexing recorded documents; and providing public access to recorded and filed documents.

Viewing or obtaining copies of recorded documents

Once a document is recorded, the images and index information will be available for viewing online the next business day. Due to the privacy concerns of many citizens, the Auditor’s Office has removed document types from our website that contain sensitive information such as social security numbers. Though you will not be able to view the scanned document, you will still have access to the indexing information and may obtain copies in the Auditor's Office.

Recording documents

Certain documents must be reviewed for excise tax by the county Treasurer's Office before they can be presented for recording. View a list of documents requiring Treasurer's Office review.
