Escrow holders look for the following records:
You're ready to close when each step of the complete in escrow process. All payments owed and fees are taken and paid at this time (covering expenses such as title insurance, inspections, real estate commissions). Title to the home is then given to you as now current homeowner and related title insurance is issued as noted in the escrow instructions.
When closing is completely finished, you'll make a payment to the escrow holder. You'll know when it's time to submit the form of payment.
Creating a Mortgage Escrow Account helps keep track of on-going expenses while there's a loan on your house. Escrow Accounts are contributed to monthly by the home buyer (who is now the homeowner), but there is also a lump sum that goes into the account at closing.
