Closing and Moving into Your New Home
Home warranty repairs
Home warranties can help cover the costs of major repairs that might happen after you close. You can get a home warranty anytime, but it is especially helpful when you move into a new home. Why bother with repairs when you don't have to.I wrote a blog post about home warranties that has a few links to good companies
Home Warranties cost a few hundreds dollars a year. The plan's cost varies depending on the property type e.g., single-family detached, condo, townhome, duplex, and whether the homeowner purchases a basic or extended plan. Size of home usually does not matter. Some companies vary the plans pricing based on age of home.
The original deed to your home will be mailed directly to you by the County Recorder, generally within four to six weeks.

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.
