I know that in our area it normally gets recorded within a day. Now everyone may have signed all the closing documents but the title company might have to wait a little longer for the deal to fund. I had one recently that took about 4 days after closing to be recorded. Title companies are normally really good about getting the deed recorded in a timely manner. It may vary from area to area. I would have to say it is probably really similar in your area. Good luck and I hope this helps.

This will depend greatly on your location and the how busy the county is where you live. Check with a local agent or call the county and ask the same question and you should get a better answer. I hope that helps.

Thanks a lot for the info -- it's very helpful. I'm actually asking because I closed on a house on 3/24, and because I didn't get a copy of the recorded deed or title policy after a while, I kept calling the lawyer who served as the title company (who was recommended by the realtor I used). I finally found out on my own that the deed was just recorded on 6/24. The lawyer/title company kept saying that this delay was very common for Philly, but it seems kind of preposterous to me. And on top of that, the title policy was just signed on 6/27. I'm hoping it will be a no-harm, no-foul situation, but it's really disturbing. Do you think the lawyer/title company is lying and forgot to record it when they should have? Or do you think I should I be worried about anything else?

Thanks again...
