Clearing the final hurdles like obtaining funds, finishing forms, obtaining the documents for loans and liens, and assuring you get a clean title to the home before your purchase gets finalized are all part of the job of the escrow holder.
Escrow holders want to acquire the following legal documents:
Closing on the property happens when the steps of the escrow are complete. All debts and fees are taken and paid at this time (covering expenses such as title insurance, inspections, real estate commissions). You'll then receive the title to the home and the title insurance gets dispersed as noted in the escrow instructions.
When closing is in it's last step, you'll submit a payment to the escrow company. As your real estate professional, I'll inform you of the acceptable way of paying.
Creating a Mortgage Escrow Account helps keep track of on-going expenses while there's a loan on your house. Though most home buyers make payments via their monthly mortgage payment, Escrow Accounts are deposited into at closing as well.
This is a simple outline of the escrow process. Your particular process will be slightly different based on your bank and your escrow holder.
