Snohomish County Recording uses two methods for certifying copies of recorded documents.
We use an all-inclusive ink stamp with our seal and a signature line for the deputy auditor to sign on.
We also use an electronic certification stamp that generated directly from our recording system. This electronic certification stamp includes the same seal and signature line as the ink stamp, as well as the date and time the copy was produced.
Both of these methods are interchangeable and equally valid as certification methods in Washington State.
