The passage of a House bill in the 2021 legislative session has resulted in an increase in Recording fees statewide.
Fees for recording documents are collected by the Clallam County Auditor, at the time of recording. Fees are distributed between various local and state agencies, as set by state statute, in the Revised Code of Washington (RCW) 36.22. We are required to collect full fees at the time of recording. 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.
