Record a Document

State law requires that certain documents (including deeds, leases, and plats) be recorded with the County Auditor. The recording process provides notice to the public and assists in determining ownership and other claims.


1. Review your document for formatting requirements

  • All documents submitted for recording in Washington State must follow certain formatting requirements. Review the formatting requirements here.
  • Some maps, plans, and surveys may have additional requirements. View the requirements checklists here.

2. Review fees 

  • Recording costs are set by state law and vary based on document type and number of pages. Please see the fee schedule for a complete list of recording fees.
  • Recurring customers may establish an escrow account to draw fees from. For more information about escrow accounts, please contact the Recording Supervisor at 425-388-3055.
