If there is a credit balance in the escrow account, you will have two options:

Closing Escrow Account

Disburse the escrow balance to the borrower directly from the escrow account.

Apply the escrow balance toward the balance of the loan. Be sure you have written permission from the borrower to do this, as funds in the escrow account often have legal protections to prevent lenders from using the funds without the borrower’s permission.

If there is a shortage in the escrow account, Moneylender will increase the loan amount to bring the escrow balance to zero.
