Yes, you should get all the docs notarized, especially those that get recorded.
Then again, nothing with your name on it should be recorded.
The notarizing of them just makes me feel more secure.
As for the title search, I do my own, but have used title companies in the past, and probably will in the future.
When you request the title search, simply tell the title company to “Rush” the search.
They can get it done in a couple of days usually, unless they are backlogged.
Title insurance only takes a few days as well.
Try to use one of the bigger national title companies around and you will get faster results.
I like First American and Chicago Title myself.
Good luck to you, and congrats on your deal,
