New Certification Stamp
In advance of replacing our recording software in early 2017, the King County Recorder's Office has a new process for certifying copies of documents.
Instead of a separate embossed seal and ink stamp with signature, we now use a single ink stamp and signature. An example of this new certification stamp is at left.
This new procedure is more efficient and still meets state law. It will also help us when we implement electronic document certification in the near future.
