The escrow company makes sure that the terms and conditions of the agreement between the sellers and the buyers are performed in preparation of the sale being finished.
Escrow holders look for the following pieces of paperwork:
You're ready to close when all steps are complete in escrow process. At this time, all payments and dues for inspections, title insurance and real estate commissions are taken. The property's title gets transferred to you and title insurance is issued per the steps of your individual escrow process.
When closing is completely finished, you'll pay the fees to the escrow holder. You'll know when it's time to submit the form of payment.
Creating a Mortgage Escrow Account helps keep track of on-going expenses while there's a loan on your house. Escrow Accounts are contributed to monthly by the home buyer (who is now the homeowner), but there is also a lump sum that goes into the account at closing.
Now you know more about being in escrow. And, you can be a better informed home buyer and future homeowner.
