I’ve paid off my house, when do I get my title?

A house is not like an automobile in that when you pay it off you get the title. You should receive the "title" or proof of ownership to your house shortly after you purchase it. It will be a deed from the seller conveying the property to you. When you pay off a loan a Release is recorded specific to the Deed of Trust that was paid off, but the release is not a document that proves ownership.
