The escrow holder is careful to assure that all terms and conditions of the seller's and buyer's negotiated agreement are reached prior to the sale being finalized. This includes securing payments and paperwork, finishing required forms, and seeking out the release documents for any loans or liens that were paid with the transaction, assuring you have a free title to your house before the asking price is fully paid.
These are the legal forms that escrow agents usually compile:
Closing on the property happens when the steps of the escrow are done. All expenses like title insurance, inspections and real estate commissions are paid. You'll then get the title to the home and the title insurance gets issued as stated in the escrow instructions.
At the close of escrow, fees are paid in an acceptable form to the escrow. I'll keep you updated on what comes next.
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.
