The escrow holder makes sure that the terms and conditions of the agreement between the sellers and the buyers are completed prior to the sale being finalized.
Escrow companies look for the following pieces of paperwork:
Closing on the home takes place when the steps of the escrow are finished. 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 dispersed as noted in the escrow instructions.
When closing is done, you'll submit a payment to the escrow holder. You'll know when it's time to submit the form of payment.
A Mortgage Escrow Account is started to make payments for on-going 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.
Now you know more about how to close on your future home. And, you can be a better informed home buyer and future homeowner.
