Brand Mortgage Group

An escrow account is used when BrandMortgage disburses your tax and insurance payments on your behalf. The amount in your escrow account is based on the estimated amount necessary to pay these obligations each year. The escrow portion of your monthly loan payment goes into an account to pay for future disbursements of your property taxes and insurance premiums. During the year, payments are made from this account as the bills come due.

Your taxing authority and insurance company determine the amount of your tax and insurance payments. When your loan is escrowed, we take responsibility for administering the payment on your tax and insurance bills: however, the payment liability is still your obligation. If you should receive any notices from your insurance carrier, broker or agent or the taxing authority regarding your payment, please advise us immediately.

 

An Escrow Analysis helps determine how much money should be deposited into an escrow account to cover future tax and insurance obligations. An annual escrow analysis is performed to determine whether the monthly payment amounts needs to be adjusted higher, lower or not at all. Adjustments would be based on payments that have already been made on your behalf, estimate future amounts and the balance in your escrow account at the time of analysis.

If you feel that there is an error with your escrow account or that an interim analysis maybe necessary due to a recent change with your escrow payments, please submit a request in writing via postal mail or email indicating why a new escrow analysis is necessary and include backup documentation. All correspondence should include:

  • Brand Mortgage Loan Number
  • Borrower Name
  • Property Address
  • Last four digits of borrower social security number

It is not the policy of BrandMortgage to remove an existing escrow account.

If you decide to change your insurance carrier, please do the following to avoid a lapse in coverage:

  • Make sure your policy meets the insurance requirement outlined below
  • Contact your previous insurance carrier to cancel coverage as of the effective date of your new policy or you may not receive a refund of the unearned premium, if one is due.
  • Forward a copy of your new policy to the Escrow Department as soon as possible so we have the most recent information on record. Be sure to have your policy information ready when calling Customer Service at 1-855-232-8519 or email information to ServicingHelpdesk@brandmortgage.com

 

If your policy is canceled, please contact us immediately so we may assist you, if possible. Failure to replace a canceled policy may result in the placement of Force-Placed or Lender Placed Coverage which will then turn into an escrow item and be included in your Escrow payment.

Your insurance policy or policies must meet the following requirements:

  • The dwelling coverage amount of your homeowner’s policy will be sufficient to cover the outstanding unpaid principal balance of your loan.

The payoff statement contains all the information you will need to complete a wire transfer, including the bank name, account and routing numbers along with instruction for brand Mortgage upon our bank’s receipt.
