Escrow companies compile the following records:
You're ready to close when every step is done in escrow process. All payments owed and fees are collected and paid off 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.
The escrow holder receives a payment at the completion of closing. You'll know when it's time to submit the form of payment.
