The escrow holder makes sure that the terms and conditions of the agreement between the seller and buyer are completed in preparation of the sale being finished.
The certificates the escrow company may secure include:
Closing on the house takes place when the steps of the escrow are finished. At this time, all payments and dues for inspections, title insurance and real estate commissions are taken. You'll then secure the title to the house and the title insurance gets issued as outlined in the escrow instructions.
When closing is in it's last step, you'll submit a payment to the escrow holder. You'll know when it's time to submit the form of payment.
A Mortgage Escrow Account is established to make payments for on-going fees while there is a loan on the house. Though most home buyers make payments via their monthly mortgage payment, Escrow Accounts are deposited into at closing as well.
Once you're at ease with the escrow process, you can be a more assured buyer.
