Things to Do and Know for After Closing

We recommend you keep all records pertaining to your home together in a safe place, including all purchase documents, insurance, maintenance, and improvements.

 Home Warranty Repairs

If you have a home warranty plan with First American Homebuyers Protection, please call them directly and have your home warranty number available. First American is one of the nation’s leading and most experienced home warranty companies.

Recorded Deed

The original deed to your home will be mailed directly to you by the County Recorder, generally within four to six weeks.


Title Insurance Policy

You will receive your policy in about two to three weeks.


Property Taxes

You may not receive a tax statement for the current year on the home you buy; however, it is your obligation to make sure the taxes are paid when due. Check with your mortgage company to find out if taxes are included with your payment. For more information on your property taxes, visit your County Auditor/Controller’s Web site.
