Washington County has Land in Torrens.
The primary principle of the Torrens System is that title to the land itself is registered. This differs from the recording system, where only evidence of title is recorded. Under Torrens, the act that conveys the land is the registration of the title in the appropriate local government office. The Clerk and Recorder is the Registrar of Titles.
