Jph, Home Buyer in 11385

I have not received any document that was a title or deed to property I closed on at the end of December. Is this unusual?

Who do I contact to followup if I need to?

Check with the closing attorney or title company and ask them for a copy of the recorded deed.

Good Luck!

Welcome to life in New York. In Queens it can take up to 3 months to get all your documents. But it is more likely that your attorney indicated he wanted all the paperwork sent to him after which he will probably send you a packet of all the closing documents and a copy of your deed. Check with your attorney.

You should have received a copy of the seller's deed titling the property to you at the close of escrow. Your Registry of Deeds should have recorded information on file, particularly if you financed the property. If you paid cash, either you, your attorney or title company are responsible for recording the deed.

Yes, it is unusual that you wouldn't have the deed and title commitment

Typically within 6 weeks of closing you will receive your title insurance policy, your title to the property and your original warranty deed. Before you closed you should have received a commitment to insure title, issued from the insurance company (Republic or other) - contact them, or if you were smart enough to use a REALTOR you could contact them for follow up on this problem.

You may want to check with the attorney who handled your closing and ask.

Jph, A car, boat, motorcycle and motor home have Titles. A specific piece of paper that states the Vin #, owner name, address etc. With property we hold "Title" to property, but this is usually recorded at the city, county or state office.
When you signed the closing papers, you likely received a copy of the Deed, which is the closest comparable paperwork to the title on a car. Check your copies, or ask whoever you signed the paperwork with for them.
