The escrow holder makes sure that the terms and conditions of the agreement between the two parties are reached prior to the sale being finalized.
The certificates the escrow agent may obtain include:
Upon finishing of all instructions of the escrow, closing can take place. All expenses like title insurance, inspections and real estate commissions are paid. The house's title gets transferred to you and title insurance is issued per the steps of your individual escrow agreement.
The escrow holder gets a payment when the closing is complete. You'll know when it's time to submit the form of payment.
A Mortgage Escrow Account is established to pay 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.
This is a quick run-down of the escrow process. Your individual process could be different based on your bank and your escrow holder.
