The escrow holder insures that all terms and conditions of the seller's and buyer's agreement are reached prior to the sale being finished. This includes securing payments and documents, signing required forms, and seeking out the release documents for any loans or liens that are to be cleared with the transaction, assuring you have a clear title to your property before the purchase price is fully paid.
These are the documents that escrow companies usually look for:
Upon finishing of all instructions of the escrow, closing can take place. At this time, all payments and dues for inspections, title insurance and real estate commissions are collected. You'll then receive the title to the property and the title insurance gets issued as agreed upon in the escrow instructions.
When closing is finished, you'll make a payment to the escrow holder. You'll know when it's time to submit the form of payment.
Often, to pay recurring costs while there's a loan on the house, a Mortgage Escrow Account is created. Usually, the home buyer makes a payment at closing and also makes regular deposits through their monthly mortgage payment to fund the Escrow Account.
