The escrow holder is careful to assure that all terms and conditions of the seller's and buyer's agreement are reached prior to the sale being finished. This includes receiving monies and certificates, completing required forms, and seeking out the release documents for any loans or liens that are to be paid off with the transaction, assuring you have a clear title to your home before the purchase price is fully paid.
Escrow companies want to obtain the following records:
Closing on the house happens when all of the procedures of the escrow are complete. At this time, all payments and fees for inspections, title insurance and real estate commissions are taken. The home's title gets handed over to you and title insurance begins per the policies of your particular escrow agreement.
When closing is done, you'll make a payment to the escrow holder. I'll keep you up-to-date on the next steps.
Creating a Mortgage Escrow Account helps keep track of on-going expenses while there's a loan on your 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 more confident home buyer and future homeowner.
