The escrow holder is careful to assure that all terms and conditions of the seller's and buyer's negotiated agreement are completed prior to the sale being finished. This includes securing payments and certificates, filling out required forms, and seeking out the release documents for any loans or liens that have been paid off with the transaction, assuring you have a clear title to your home before the asking price is fully paid.
The certificates the escrow holder may obtain include:
Closing on the house happens when all of the procedures of the escrow are complete. All expenses like title insurance, inspections and real estate commissions are paid. The property's title is given to you and title insurance begins per the policies of your particular escrow agreement.
When closing is done, you'll submit a payment to the escrow holder. I'll keep you up-to-date on the next steps.
Often, to pay recurring costs while there's a loan on the house, a Mortgage Escrow Account is created. Usually, the home buyer makes a payment at closing and also makes regular deposits through their monthly mortgage payment to fund the Escrow Account.
This is a simple outline of the escrow process. Your particular process will vary based on your bank and your escrow holder.
