Settling the last details like taking in funds, signing forms, obtaining the documents for loans and liens, and making sure you get a spotless title to the home prior to your purchase gets finalized are all parts of closing in which an escrow company is useful.
These are the legal forms that escrow companies usually look for:
Upon finishing of all portions of the escrow, closing can take place. All payments owed and fees are taken and paid off at this time (covering expenses such as title insurance, inspections, real estate commissions). The house's title goes to you and title insurance is issued per the policies of your individual escrow agreement.
When closing is done, you'll make a payment to the escrow holder. As your REALTOR, I'll let you know what is an acceptable way of paying.
Often, to pay recurring costs while there's a loan on the house, a Mortgage Escrow Account is created. Generally, the Escrow Account is partially funded at closing and the home buyer makes on-going contributions through their monthly mortgage payment.
Now you know more about being in escrow. And, you can be a better informed home buyer and future homeowner.
