I’m no expert on this, so I would check with the experts===my title company closer. However, that is the probably with putting a deed into escrow for any length of time. So I would say to avoid the problem, don’t do it, or get it “out” or taken care of before it’s “too late” and stale.
Actually I think I had this conversation once with my closer, and I think she said, it depends on who you will be giving the deed to (like the redorder), as to whether or not THEY deem it to be “stale”. They also might not want to accept it, because they might feel the likelyhood of fraud would be greater, especially if the maker dies.
