In the state of California, “CLOSING” an escrow has a different meaning than in most other states.  This particular word seems to cause a lot of confusion, which is understandable, considering how varied the definition can be from one entity to the next.  In California, when an Escrow is officially “closed”, it means that is the day that the Grant Deed is recorded at the County Recorder’s office, and is officially of public record.  Specifically, “Closing” is the moment the Grant Deed is date-stamped by the County Clerk.  This is also the same moment that ownership of the property changes hands from the Seller, to the Buyer(s), who are now officially the new owner(s).
