The escrow holder is careful to assure that all terms and conditions of the seller's and buyer's contract are completed prior to the sale being finished. This includes getting payments and records, signing required forms, and obtaining the release documents for any loans or liens that have been paid off with the transaction, assuring you have a clear title to your house before the asking price is fully paid.
These are the legal forms that escrow holders usually look to collect:
Closing on the house takes place when the steps of the escrow are complete. All expenses like title insurance, inspections and real estate commissions are paid. The house's title goes to you and title insurance is issued per the policies of your particular escrow process.
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.
A Mortgage Escrow Account is established to make payments for recurring fees while there is a loan on the house. Generally, the Escrow Account is partially funded at closing and the home buyer makes on-going contributions through their monthly mortgage payment.
