If you are unsure of the correct fees, you may come into our office or send a signed blank check made out to Washington County with a statement that it is not to exceed $__ (the highest estimated amount you are willing to authorize). We will fill in the correct amount and return the instrument(s) to you with a receipt for recording, if requested.
We accept cash, checks, money order, debit & most charge cards. Debit & charge cards will be processed with an additional convenience charge of 2.45% (minimum $1.50).
