‘THE GOOD AND THE BAD WALK HAND IN HAND.’
With more and more opportunities waiting for being grabbed in the market, the evaporation of the feeling called trust has created an ambiguous environment for business. Daily reports of fraudulent activities do put brakes in the minds of people before placing trust on some one. Fear is the biggest business generator. Be it Life Insurance policies, credit cards, medical insurances or even Escrow. Absence of trust has paved way for Escrow into the Mortgage loan industry.
A mortgage loan giving company dreads natural calamities. In event of natural calamities the security of the money lent may be destroyed, which may also mean no further payment from the borrower. Net Loss on the cards. In order to avoid such situations, more and more mortgage loan issuing institutions are keen to establish escrow transaction.
Mortgage Escrow transactions ensure full amount to the risk bearing organisations. Hassle free recovery encourages the institutions to lend more amounts using the escrow method and not worry about their money going down the gutters. Cetirus Peribus, it so is the case. The only way the ship can sink is the escrow company going bankrupt.

PROCESS OF MORTGAGE ESCROW
The process of escrow transaction for mortgage loans is pretty easy.
Once, the candidate is deemed valid for granting the loans, an escrow account is created for regulating the inflow of money with an escrow company.
The mortgage loan may be on homes or automobiles. The escrow company formulates the monthly instalment payable by the borrower depending on his financial background and income modules. The borrower then deposits the monthly amount in the escrow account created for him until the tenure of the loan does not get over, i.e. the transaction is not completed. At the completion of the tenure, the escrow company pays the P&I i.e. the principal amount and the interest together to the bank after deducting their charges from the same.
SAFETY OF INSURANCE
The escrow account is insured for the full amount. In case of any unfortunate happening, the institution shall receive the full principal amount back after a set of procedures are completed. This way using mortgage escrow, the institution safeguards its huge risks from being obsolete.
FORCED SAVINGS ACCOUNT
The mortgage escrow transaction is like a fixed savings bank account. A small cliché though! The interest of your deposits is earned by the escrow company.
is widely used in the United States of America post the huge debacle of loan amounts not returning to bank leading to humungous losses. With people not repaying loans on time, choosing escrow methods at least offers surety about recovery of the risk involved.
