Thanks to everyone who responded to me today. I got an email reply from Member Admin this afternoon. They contacted someone in Member Services and had my points loaded. So excited and relieved to get them in the nick of time for booking at my 7-month window.

Final update. Points loaded this morning. I tried via chat a few days ago, but they wouldn’t do it. Didn’t even try. Pointed me to call member services. So I called this morning, and they did it. 30-40 minutes waiting on hold. Then about 15-20 minutes waiting for MS to be on hold waiting for the right department to load the points. Not too bad. They were very friendly about it.

Just wanted to share this closing tip to any fellow Canadians...

I never wire my funds due to the high cost Canadian Banks charge for this service. Instead I send "cashiers checks" (certified bank draft) via registered mail. UPS has a flat rate of $19.50 for a tracked and registered letter sent to Florida. They promise it will arrive in 3 days. Canada post wants $32 for the same and promises arrival in 5 days.

Not sure if all Title companies offer this option (cashier check/Bank Draft), but I only use Mason (Cammy is amazing!!) and they have no problems with this approach.

Hello... I am posting my closing information :). I am also hoping a few of you can help me figure some things out.

I am unsure when the Deed records or how I even find out it did record?
Most of the closings I have read here on the Boards were in a day or two. I have emailed the Title company but they are likely busy so have not responded.

We passed ROFR in a great amount of time (and I am grateful). It did seem like the closing docs took a longer time than many I have seen here but maybe different contracts have different times. This is an international seller so I expected their docs to be returned a bit later so closing was a good three weeks after passing ROFR. Is deed recording different with international?

I am just trying to gauge my expectations (no complaints) just want to know how others found out about deed etc. :).

We have 79 points expiring 1/31/2022 so pretty sure we will not get to use those...but hoping :)

Thanks for any information.

Our purchase was from an international seller, and the deed recorded in a couple of days. I’ve seen cases where it was the same day.

Also, the membership number showing up seems to be a little faster these days. Ours was 13 days. I’ve seen as little as a week. You’re almost there!

That went quick. I guess the seller had already returned their paperwork. Sent the wire yesterday and an hour ago I received an e-mail saying we were closed and the deed has been submitted to Orange County. It's a stripped contract so no real rush for the process to get done, other than to know that it's all done.

I was so excited that maybe this time I wouldn’t be waiting long to get points in my account since I got closing docs 1 day after passing ROFR, but I here I am 9 days later still waiting for the seller to return their docs…

Deed recorded in two days. My last purchase, a year ago, it was 10 days. Getting some really quick turn around times!
