- The plaintiff’s attorney prepares the confirmation entry and the deed. It takes an average of six to eight weeks for the confirmation to be filed and the deed issued to the Sheriff’s Office. Once the deed is executed, the purchaser will be notified that they have 10 business days to finalize the transaction or contempt proceedings could be filed. It is the responsibility of the purchaser to record the deed. If the plaintiff purchases the property, the deed is sent back to the plaintiff’s attorney for recording.
