Search Auditor's Records


The Auditor’s Office provides access to most recorded documents online.

Auditor’s Public Record Search

We also upload documents to Washington State Digital Archives. You can search, select, and order documents with a credit or debit card through Digital Archives. Not all counties in Washington utilize the digital archives database, and not all of the Cowlitz County Auditor’s records are available.

In Person

The public is welcome to come into the Auditor’s Office, during regular business hours, to access recorded documents.
