Surveyors Office - Plat Survey Review
When a record is submitted for review a paper copy that is stamped and signed by the surveyor and 4 copies of it are acceptable. Fees, required per our
Fee Schedule, will need to be paid and staff will then review the survey to insure that the it meets our
Map Standards. After the review the final map can be submitted for recording.
A Title Report or Plant Service Report will be required when recording Partitions, Subdivisions, Condominiums, or Cemeteries. The report will need to show all monetary encumbrances, covenants and restrictions, easements, rights-of-way and other non-monetary items of record along with the owners of record. The report needs to be 15 days old or less at the time of recording, so you will need to work with staff on timing issues.
Signatures and Notarizations
ORS and OAR require archival black ink be used on mylars. Ball point pens and self-inking stamps are unacceptable! Effective January 1, 2002, notary stamps/seals are no longer required to be used on plats when notarized by an Oregon Notary Public. See
INSTRUCTIONS FOR NOTARIZING PLATS.
Ink Jet Plotting
The Marion County Surveyor will accept Ink Jet Plotting as long as it meets the standards outlined in the OACES website. (Currently the County Clerk's Office does accept plats that meet the same standard as long as a signed statement is submitted that notes the type of ink and mylar used (check with our office)).
