For your information: Unlike a vehicle title which you receive after the payments are made, the deed to your house is given to you by the title company that is used for your closing. Your deed is recorded in our office and then returned to the title company. If you have misplaced your deed and need a copy, we can provide a regular or certified copy upon request. Just give us a call at 865-215-3766 or email us.
