Welcome to the Recorder's Office Web Page!

The Recorder's Office keeps records of all documents recorded in Kootenai County. Under this general description is a long list of services. For example, marriage licenses are obtained in the Recorder's Office, passport applications are processed, land documents are recorded, as are plat maps, surveys, easements, assertions of right-of-way, and some types of liens. The legal description of the property and the name of the owner (obtainable in the Assessor's Office), are required in order to locate a real property document.

The Recorder's Office has forms for:

  • Applications for passports
  • Catering permits
  • Liquor licenses
  • Applications for "DBA"s, or Assumed Business Names.

A recordable document, per Idaho Code, must be notarized, have original signatures of grantor and notary, and, if it conveys real property, must have the grantee's current mailing address. However, not all recorded documents are certifiable. A certified copy from the Recorder's Office is as good as an original (except a birth or death certificate, which must come from Idaho Vital Statistics P O Box 83720, Boise ID 83720; 208-334-5980).
