Not here Debbie! Although the purchase is funded by loan or cash, the money (seller proceeds, agent fees, payment to vendors, etc ) gets sent out after recording. It is usually the next day unless we close late on a Friday or the day before a holiday. That's why scheduling is so important. I ran into that problem on a HAP closing because the government acquisition department didn't know that we needed an original deed to record.
The buyer can walk away with the keys if the contract says possession at settlement but we can put the possession after recording, if the seller wants as long as we write it in.
If Chandra sold her home in Norfolk, like her profile says, and closed on Friday, she should have her check today. I have a cash closing this a.m. and it's possible that title company will record earlier today and pay the seller today..
