The escrow holder makes sure that the terms and conditions of the agreement between the seller and buyer are completed prior to the sale being finalized.
These are the documents that escrow holders usually look to collect:
You're ready to close when every step is complete in escrow process. All debts and fees are collected and paid at this time (covering expenses such as title insurance, inspections, real estate commissions). You'll then secure the title to the property and the title insurance gets dispersed as noted in the escrow instructions.
When closing is completely finished, you'll submit a payment to the escrow company. I'll keep you informed on the procedure.
A Mortgage Escrow Account is started to pay rolling expenses while there is a loan on the 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 how to close on your future home. And, you can be a more informed home buyer and future homeowner.
