Lot Combination1 H:\CED\Data\Forms-Templates\Self-Help Handouts\Planning\LotCombination.doc Rev: 2/2017 LOT COMBINATION GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS AND APPLICATION The Revised Code of Washington (RCW) Section 58.17.040 (6) allows for alteration by adjusting the boundary lines (lot combination) between contiguous properties provided that: • No additional lots, tracts, or sites are created; and • No parcels are established which contain insufficient area and dimension or setbacks as required by zoning or other regulations. In order to insure that a Lot Combination meets these requirements, it must be reviewed by the Department of Community and Economic Development. Once approved, it must be recorded with the King County Recorder’s Office. REQUIRED ELEMENTS OF A DECLARATION OF LOT COMBINATION (SEE SAMPLE COPY ATTACHED) ARE AS FOLLOWS: 1. The Declaration of Lot Combination document must contain the complete and accurate legal descriptions, including any recorded easements along with the parcel number(s) of the existing/original. When completed, the document must contain the notarized acknowledgements and signatures of ALL involved parties; 2. An accurate drawing of the existing/original and the revised/combined parcels, depicting the parcel number, the location of all roads, easements, structures, and other features. The drawing does not need to meet a particular scale, but it must be legible and clearly show property dimensions, distances from all structures to property lines, and an arrow pointing north. A clear one (1) inch margin shall be left on all four (4) sides of the drawing. Drawings should not exceed 8 ½” x 14” in size. The existing/original lots must be labeled Parcel A, Parcel B, and so on; 3. Deeds, deeds of trust, or mortgage releases if ownership is being transferred; 4. “Declaration of Lot Combination” must be clearly filled in with dark ink printing or typing. The document must have exact State required margins as follows: 3” Top Margin, 1” on each Side and Bottom of the page (your return address can be within the 3” top margin). All other sheets must have 1” margins on both sides. Once drafted, the original proposed Lot Combination documents (including items 1 through 4 above) shall be submitted to Department of Community and Economic Development along with any applicable processing fee. In the application, be sure to attach the name, address, and phone number of the person who should be contacted when the Declaration of Lot Combination is ready to record or if a problem arises. When approved, the applicants are notified that their Declaration of Lot Combination Documents are ready for recording with King County, along with necessary supportive documents such as an excise tax affidavit deed(s), deed(s) of trust, or mortgage releases. CAUTION: Applicants may wish to obtain a title report and have the Declaration reviewed by a licensed land surveyor and/or title officer to ensure that all deeds, legal descriptions, and maps are correct and accurate. The accuracy of the Declaration and the associated deeds is the responsibility of the applicant. The City of Renton assumes no liability for any errors or complications that arise therefrom.
