Customer Question

We sold a home. The VA loan was assumed. After closing we received a statement from Wells Fargo indicating the balance in our escrow account, however they never sent the funds to us. It turns out that at closing we signed a document that signed away our escrow. This form was not given to us to review in advance and was clearly not explained at closing.
I asked Wells Fargo to provide me with a full accounting of my escrow account, showing where those funds went and they have not responded. There was nothing in the settlement statement that indicated I was signing away nearly $1,000. The title company has also been no help. I indicated to them that our purchase agreement did not include assigning our escrow to the buyer, but they were no help, as it was a Wells Fargo document.
