NOTICE

 
CHANGE IN RECORDING FEES
 
 
The Board of Natural Resources (DNR) approved an increase in the recording fee surcharge.  The DNR fee will increase from $46 to $64 on July 1, 2015 ($18.00 increase).
 
The DNR portion of the recording fee will increase from $46 to $64 and is to be applied to all surveys (regardless of size), which includes any maps, plats, or plans required by local ordinance to be filed and recorded (Per WAC 332-150-020 definitions).  This includes, but is not limited to, Short Plats, Plats, Boundary Line Adjustments and Plats.  If also applies to any instrument amending a previously recorded instrument, such as an Affidavit of Minor Correction to a Survey ... Many surveyors use their own form instead of the standard one.
  
State law requires that we collect full fees and distribute them to the appropriate agencies.  As a result, if a document is submitted without full payment, we are required to send it back and request that it be submitted with the correct fee.  In these cases, we will notify you of the fee we expect to be submitted.
 
We understand that any delay in recording documents has significant impacts to businesses and our shared customers. We strongly encourage you to contact us with any questions or to verify the recording fee prior to submitting your documents. Our recording staff can be reached at (360) 240-5549 Monday through Friday 9:00am to 4:00pm.
