Escrow Checklist for Buyers

 When we successfully get your home into contract your Invesdoor® Agent will open escrow with a local Title   Company. Once that’s done, they will help you with the following:

 Escrow Requirements:

  • Provide Escrow Officer with your preferred method of contact:                                                             Home, work, cell or email.

  • Choose how to hold title – consult with legal counsel or                                                                                attorney.

  • Let your Escrow Officer know if funds are coming from the sale                                                                      of an existing home.

 Hazard Insurance (if not a condo or town home):

  • Obtain quotes.

  • Make a decision on your agent and coverage.

  • Give your Escrow Officer the agent’s name and phone number                                                        (Preferably 30 days prior to close of escrow)

 Loan Approval:

  • Provide Lender with all documents for loan approval.

  • Ensure names are spelled correctly on loan application and as                                                                      you would like them to appear on your deed.

  • Remind your Loan Agent that your Escrow Officer needs your loan documents prior to your orientation date.

 Your Escrow Appointment:

  • Upon receipt of your documents, your Escrow Officer will call you with amount needed to close, required in the form of a wire transfer or a cashier’s check, drawn on a California bank, and payable to Invesdoor®.

  • All individuals named on the loan documents must be present at the signing. If this presents a conflict, please speak with your Escrow Officer as soon as possible.

  • All must present valid identification – acceptable forms include a current Driver’s License, Passport, California Department of Motor Vehicles, or other California-approved identification card, provided it has a photograph, description of the person, signature of the person and identifying number.

   Contact your Invesdoor® Agent if you have any questions specific to your transactions. We’re here to help!
