Quarterly Report Filing Deadline Approaching
January 30th is the deadline for you to file the Escrow Agent Quarterly Report (EAQR). The Department’s online EAQR filing system utilizes Secure Access Washington (SAW) for this report. Filers must log into their Secure Access Washington account and select “Escrow Agent QR” to access the filing system.
This Instructional User Guide contains directions for creating a SAW account and filing the EAQR.
Escrow Officer Renewals
Don’t forget! Escrow Officer Licenses expire throughout the year, depending on the initial approval date. Renewals are paid online via the Escrow Officer Online Renewal System. The Department is seeing an increase in officers renewing late or not renewing before the license cancels. If the license cancels, the individual must reapply for the license which involves meeting new application requirements.
See WAC 208-680-243 for renewal and reinstatement information for escrow officers.
