These are the legal forms that escrow holders usually look to collect:
Closing on the house takes place when the steps of the escrow are finished. All expenses like title insurance, inspections and real estate commissions are paid. The property's title goes to you and title insurance begins per the steps of your individual escrow agreement.
When closing is in it's last step, you'll pay the fees to the escrow agent. As your agent, I'll inform you of the acceptable form of payment.
Creating a Mortgage Escrow Account helps keep track of on-going expenses while there's a loan on your house. Generally, the Escrow Account is partially funded at closing and the home buyer makes on-going contributions through their monthly mortgage payment.
