The escrow agent makes sure that the terms and conditions of the agreement between the seller and buyer are performed prior to the sale being finished.
These are the documents that escrow holders usually look to collect:
Upon completion of all portions of the escrow, closing can take place. All expenses like title insurance, inspections and real estate commissions are paid. The property's title is given to you and title insurance is issued per the policies of your particular escrow agreement.
At the close of escrow, payments of funds are made in an acceptable form to the escrow. 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. Usually, the home buyer makes a payment at closing and also makes regular deposits through their monthly mortgage payment to fund the Escrow Account.
Once you have the basics of the escrow process down, you can be a better buyer.
