Trustee delaying deed delivery


#1

Hi Sean, I just bought a property, and the trustee told me that they send out the deed after 2 weeks, so it is impossible for me to record it within 15 days. What’s the consequence of not recording it within 15 days? Thanks!

Fax them a letter citing CA Civil Code 2924’s requirement that the deed be recorded within 15 days. Let them know that if they fail to deliver the deed in a timely manner you expect them to take full responsibility for any liability created by the late recording.

Sean, thanks for your response! I will do that for the next property I buy if they tell me the same thing. For this one, It is too late already. Mon Aug 17th 2009 at 4:08pm
