The escrow company makes sure that the terms and conditions of the agreement between the two parties are completed in preparation of the sale being completed.
The certificates the escrow holder may obtain include:
Closing on the home takes place when the steps of the escrow are complete. All payments owed and fees are taken and paid off at this time (covering expenses such as title insurance, inspections, real estate commissions). The house's title is given to you and title insurance begins per the steps of your individual escrow process.
The escrow company gets a payment when the closing is complete. I'll keep you updated on the procedure.
Creating a Mortgage Escrow Account helps keep track of on-going expenses while there's a loan on your house. Generally, the Escrow Account is partially funded at closing and the home buyer makes on-going contributions through their monthly mortgage payment.
This is a simple outline of the escrow process. Your individual process might vary depending on your lender and your escrow holder.
