Land Title and Escrow Company

“LOCAL SERVICE IS OUR PASSION!”

Since 1940

Land Title and Escrow Company was founded in Skagit Valley in 1940 by 25 original shareholders who needed a professional business entity to serve the primarily agricultural community’s real estate and lender transaction needs. A majority of the current shareholders can trace their stock ownership back to these ancestral shareholders.

LTCO services the title and escrow needs of the Skagit and Island County communities from five strategically placed offices in Burlington, Anacortes, Oak Harbor, Freeland, and Stanwood/Camano Island. The service staff consists of approximately 50 highly trained and experienced professional associates who efficiently and effectively handle the documents to ensure your real estate transaction recording. Each transaction is given the highest personal involvement and emphasis possible.

Our associates live in and support our shared communities and are proud to be your family, friends, and neighbors.


Effective July 25, 2021, recording fees for most documents will increase. Our goal is to ensure proper recording of your documents and reduce document rejections due to these changes. The fee for recording a standard one-page document will be $203.50, except those documents exempt under state law.

HB 1277 increases the state housing surcharges by $100.
