When do I get the deed?

Updated March 13, 2023.

Once the deed is recorded in the County Clerk’s Office, it will be sent to you by the County Clerk, usually within 6-8 weeks after closing. It is not unheard of for the recorded deed to be lost at some point before the buyer receives it. This is not a problem. Once the deed has been recorded, the transfer is final. Therefore, the original deed is no longer necessary. Your attorney will make certain the original deed gets properly recorded, following which you can always obtain a certified copy of your deed from the County Clerk, showing it has been properly recorded.
