Important Notice - Online Document Search Tool Upgrade

On Monday, April 6 Snohomish County Recording will upgrade the online recorded document search tool.  The new search tool features modern screen layouts and will allow for future functionality such as online payment options and access to older records.

If you have questions as you transition to using the new tool, assistance can be obtained by emailing contact.recording@snoco.org or calling 425-388-3483 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.
