The escrow holder makes sure that the terms and conditions of the agreement between the seller and buyer are performed in preparation of the sale being finalized.
Escrow agents want to acquire the following forms:
You're ready to close when all parts are finished in escrow process. All expenses like title insurance, inspections and real estate commissions are paid. Title to the house is then given to you as new owner and correct title insurance is issued 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.
A Mortgage Escrow Account is used to pay recurring fees while there is a loan on the house. Escrow Accounts are contributed to monthly by the home buyer (who is now the homeowner), but there is also a lump sum that goes into the account at closing.
Once you have the basics of the escrow process down, you can be a informed buyer.
