Records


The recording department is closed between noon and 1 p.m. daily.

Official public record of all recorded documents in Okanogan County are maintained by the Auditor's Recording Department. Recorded documents include, but are not limited to, deeds, mortgages, judgments, liens, surveys, plats, mining claims, boundary line adjustments, marriage licenses, etc..

In March 2007, the Recording Department started using the Eagle Recorder Imaging System to index, scan and store the image of documents that are recorded. If you come into the Auditor's Office, this system allows instantaneous viewing of the documents as well as computerized searching capabilities and copying of the documents. Documents from 1993 to present can be accessed with this system.

Documents recorded prior to 1993 have been scanned and are available for copying. Some Okanogan County documents are available on line, we recommend using Chrome when doing a record search. You can complete a search using any of the following links:

If you want to request a copy of a document, you can email us at recording@co.okanogan.wa.us. The cost will be $1.00 per page, we also have an $8.00 per hour search fee that may apply.
