Where are you (which state)?
I have found that escrow states record faster than table funding states.
I don't know how much difference this makes but on August 12th (We are set to close SEP 12th) the title company did send us a bunch of forms we needed to fill out for them including our HO insurance info ect. I am hoping that it means they have pre done all the paperwork they can so that when close happens they only have minimal paperwork and can send it through quickly but I am really just guessing at this point maybe everyone gets the title paperwork a month before their close date.?
