Yes, you should have the deed recorded immediately. If you don’t record you don’t own. Anyway are you giving them any money? If you are wait till they are out of the house. Also do a title search before you hand them money. You also need to hold the property either in a trust or an LLC. This will help with the due on sale clause. DO NOT GIVE THEM MONEY UNTIL THEY LEAVE. I hope this helps.
