The escrow holder is careful to assure that all terms and conditions of the seller's and buyer's contract are met prior to the sale being finalized. This includes getting monies and certificates, completing required forms, and seeking out the release documents for any loans or liens that are to be paid off with the transaction, assuring you have a clear title to your place before the purchase price is fully paid.
These are the legal documents that escrow companies usually look for:
Closing on the house happens when all of the procedures of the escrow are finished. At this time, all payments and dues for inspections, title insurance and real estate commissions are paid out. You'll then get the title to the property and the title insurance gets dispersed as noted in the escrow instructions.
The escrow holder gets a payment at the completion of closing. As your real estate professional, I'll inform you of the acceptable way of paying.
A Mortgage Escrow Account is established to pay on-going fees while there is a loan on the house. Though most home buyers make payments via their monthly mortgage payment, Escrow Accounts are deposited into at closing as well.
