Plat Survey Review
For plats, effective January 1, 2013, as a courtesy, submit 1 signed and stamped original(s) bond (PAPER) and 4 signed and stamped bond (PAPER) copies, along with a preliminary title report.
For surveys, beginning July 01, 2021 and in keeping with ORS Chapter 209.250(1) the Marion County Surveyor's Office will only accept permanent maps (vellum, polypropylene or Mylar) for review and filing of all boundary, pre/post-construction, and property line adjustment surveys. Please submit one (1) signed permanent final map and one (1) signed bond (PAPER) copy for surveys. Please submit one (1) permanent final map and four (4) bond (PAPER) copies for a property line adjustment.
Fees, required per our
Fee Schedule, will need to be paid and staff will then review the map to insure that it meets ORS 209.250 and our
Subdivision/Condominium Name Request
Existing Subdivision Names
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 Mylar. 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)).
