In a conventional home sale in L.A. County, with a reputable escrow company used for the sale.....EXACTLY which entity is responsible for filing the new deed? Buyer? Seller? Or the Escrow company? If the deed is properly filed, does the name change from seller to buyer necessarily automatically occur?
***I ask because 7 months after the home sale the County of L.A. Tax Assessor's office is still sending me, the seller, tax statements. The County obviously hasn't made the name change and cleared my name from the property.
