Clearing the final hurdles like receiving funds, finishing forms, obtaining the documents for loans and liens, and assuring you get a clear title to the house in preparation of your purchase gets finalized are all part of the job of the escrow agent.
Escrow holders collect the following records:
Closing on the property takes place when all of the procedures of the escrow are done. All expenses like title insurance, inspections and real estate commissions are paid. You'll then secure the title to the property and the title insurance gets dispersed as noted in the escrow instructions.
When closing is completed, you'll make a payment to the escrow company. As your agent, I'll inform you of the acceptable way of paying.
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 specific plan could vary depending on your lender and your escrow company.
