What’s the next step after I’ve signed the closing escrow papers?

After both parties have signed all the necessary instructions and documents, the escrow officer will return the buyer’s loan documents to the lender fora final review. This review usually occurs within a few days of execution of the documents. After the lender review is complete, they will inform the escrow officer they are ready to fund the loan.

Once the loan is funded and escrow has the authorization to close, the documents will be released to the County Recorder’s Office for recording. Upon receipt of recording confirmation, funds will be disbursed to the seller.
