Things You Should Know
The Escrow Analysis is designed to be prepared on an annual basis to assist you in determining what the monthly payment should be in order to have enough dollars on hand to pay out the escrow items as they become due. Any escrow overages or shortages are amortized over twelve months and added to or subtracted from the monthly escrow amount.
When you select to Post the escrow amount to the Loan Master, it will post to the Escrow 1 Amt field. If you wish for a portion to go to Escrow 2 Amt, you will need to edit the Loan Master. Also, if you wish to have a maximum for either Escrow 1 or Escrow 2, these, too, will need to be edited in the Loan Master.
