The escrow accounts are special accounts that a lender uses to hold a borrower’s monthly payments towards property taxes, homeowner's insurance andmortgage insurance if applicable. By distributing these annual fees as components of monthly mortgage payments paid by the borrower, you don’t have to worry about getting an exorbitant bill in the mail that you can’t afford. Instead, you pay a portion of the expected fee into an escrow account throughout the year and the lender disburses payment for these fees when they become due.
