Clearing the final hurdles like receiving funds, completing forms, getting the documents for loans and liens, and making sure you get a clean title to the property in preparation of your purchase gets finalized are all part of the job of the escrow agent.
Escrow agents look for the following legal documents:
Closing on the home takes place when all of the procedures of the escrow are finished. At this time, all payments and fees for inspections, title insurance and real estate commissions are taken. The house's title gets handed over to you and title insurance begins per the steps of your individual escrow agreement.
When closing is completely finished, you'll pay the fees to the escrow company. You'll know when it's time to submit the form of payment.
A Mortgage Escrow Account is started to make payments for rolling fees while there is a loan on the house. Generally, the Escrow Account is partially funded at closing and the home buyer makes on-going contributions through their monthly mortgage payment.
Once you have the ABCs of the escrow process down, you can be a more assured buyer.
