Subdivision or Platting Process:
Long plat, short plat, Large Lot sub, Condominium process and Binding Site plan requirements are covered by RCW and the Planning Department Ordinances per the County and City jurisdictions. The Cadastral staff alters the tax rolls by creating new tax parcels and mapping them to reflect the changes made through these processes.
Transfer (Recorded Deeds) Documentation:
Assessor tax account modifications based on transfer documentation may or may not meet the requirements of land subdivision consistent with Planning Department regulations. The parties to an ownership transaction will need to contact their local Planning Department to confirm whether the transfer will meet requirements for development.
