Taxes, Insurance and Escrow
What does my monthly escrow include?
Your monthly escrow payment may includes both taxes and insurance or only one of each. You can refer to your HUD closing documents or last year’s Escrow Analysis to determine which items are being escrowed. If you are not sure, feel free to contact us and we will be happy to help you.
If my insurance is escrowed then why am I receiving expiration notices from you?
We apologize for any confusion these letters may cause. The letters and their wording are required by law to be sent to you 30 and 15 days prior to expiration and on the date of expiration, if not already renewed. Because you are the policyholder, there are times that your insurance agent may not send us the invoice for the renewal or proof of insurance. If you receive this letter it is our way of asking you for your assistance in getting a copy of the renewal invoice. You or your agent can fax the invoice to us at (954)380-8650.
When is my Annual Escrow Analysis performed?
Annual escrow analysis is done the first week of January every year. You should receive your escrow analysis with your 1098 Tax Form by the second week of January. Any increases or decreases in monthly escrow will take effect with your February payment.
If my escrow analysis resulted in a surplus, when will that amount be refunded to me?
In most cases any surplus refund will be included with your escrow analysis and 1098. If your analysis shows a surplus but no refund was included with your analysis, please feel free to contact us to determine cause.
How is my monthly escrow amount determined?
The equation used to determine monthly escrow is based on a standardized method used by all bank and private servicers. It is based on determining the amount needed each month to insure that at its lowest balance, your escrow account never goes below a two-month cushion.
What is an escrow "overage" or "deficiency"?
To insure that your escrow balance does not drop below a two-month cushion at its lowest point, your escrow balance must begin the year with a specific balance. If your balance is above this specific amount then you have a surplus. Any surplus over $50.00 will be refunded to you with your annual escrow analysis. If your balance is below that specific amount, then you have a deficiency. If your deficiency is less than one month’s escrow payment then it will be due with your next monthly P&I and T&I payment. If the amount is greater than one month’s escrow, then it will be broken out over the next 12 monthly P&I and T&I payments.
If the County over-charges me on my taxes and issues a large refund can I request my escrow analysis be re-run?
Absolutely. If you are issued a substantial refund due to overpayment of taxes, please submit a request to us in writing and we can re-run your escrow analysis. Send requests to firstname.lastname@example.org or fax them to (954) 380‑8650.
