research necessary to form a title opinion. For example, copies of sales
and mortgages may be ordered from the Copy Room and a Mortgage Certificate
might be ordered from the Mortgage Department. After a closing, the Cash
Sale, Mortgage, and other documents related to the transaction will be
filed at the Recording Department.
