Ephrata, PA asked in Real Estate Law for Pennsylvania

Q: I recently did a mail away and signed documents for a house closing. I am mailing back package overnight.

We all know sometimes the package takes longer. Is there a time frame after closing to record the documents at the courthouse?

A: Perhaps some attorney much more brilliant than myself could make some sense of your question, but I can't. Would you ask it again and include more details? Some examples: Are you the buyer or the seller? What documents did you sign ? To whom are you sending the documents? Is a title insurance company handling the closing ? Are any realtors involved? Who is preparing the deed? I assume you already signed a purchase and sale agreement, that neither the buyer nor the seller has engaged an attorney for the transaction, and your concern about mailing the documents. involves the date the closing.
