Recording Department

The County Auditor or Recording Officer is considered the "Custodians of Land Records".

The Recording Department records all documents that affect real property/real estate and maintains them for public record.  Documents need to be recorded in the County in which the land or any portion of land is situated.

The significance of recording a document is to give notice of the subject matter of the document to the public. Once recorded, a document becomes part of the official records of Clallam County and is considered a permanent record.

The types of documents recorded are:

  • Real Estate Documents
  • Surveys, Short Plats, Plats, Condos, Large Lot Subdivisions 
  • Marriage Licenses
  • Name Changes
  • Military DD-214

Documents NOT recorded by the Recording Division:

  • Birth and Death Certificates
  • Contact: Health Department, (360) 417-2411
  • Court Records, including divorce decrees
  • Contact: County Clerk, (360) 417-2231

We also administer and issue Marriage Licenses and various other licenses.
