Important Notice - Recording Fee Change on June 12 - During the 2014 legislative session, the Washington State legislature passed SB 5875 impacting the fees required to record documents. The fee change applies a $40 surcharge, previously collected only on documents related to property, to all documents with limited exception. The money collected from the $40 surcharge supports housing and shelter programs for homeless persons. Please read our customer notice and refer to the Recording Division Schedule of Fees effective June 12 for more information.
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.
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.
