Escrow shortage?I just received a letter from my mortgage company stating that my escrow was short and I owed them 400+ dollars. This is my third home and the first time this has occurred. I understand this is 'common practice', but this also seems very fishy. How easy is it to have a home owner refinance at a low rate and then ask for escrow later (6 months in my case). Could someone shed some light on this? I hope I'm missing something and I don't have a shady mortgage company!August 06 2013 - Columbus11YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
