Management companies provide escrow related services when homeowners in community associations either sell or refinance their property. If a sale, the services are paid for by either the buyer or seller, but never the HOA. If a refinance, the services are paid for by the mortgage broker or borrower, but never the HOA. See: Escrow Services for Homeowner Associations and Escrow Holder-Functions for additional information. Coast Management of California provides these important services to owners of homes within the association we manage. We also offer these services to self-managed homeowner associations and other management companies located throughout California.
