The escrow holder makes sure that the terms and conditions of the agreement between the sellers and the buyers are met prior to the sale being finalized.
The documents the escrow company may obtain include:
Upon finishing of all portions of the escrow, closing can take place. At this time, all payments and fees for inspections, title insurance and real estate commissions are collected. You'll then secure the title to the property and the title insurance gets dispersed as outlined in the escrow instructions.
At the close of escrow, payment of funds shall be 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. Though most home buyers make payments via their monthly mortgage payment, Escrow Accounts are deposited into at closing as well.
Once you're comfortable with the escrow process, you can be a confident buyer.
