Escrow accounts and flood insurance requirements are just two of the many aspects of real estate lending.

Both present challenges when it comes to proper calculations, notifications, and what to do when things don’t go according to plan. Do you understand the escrow phases and what is required during each? Do all properties in a floodplain require flood insurance? This comprehensive program will dive into all the details.

  • Describe the uses of short-year escrow statements
  • Calculate the proper amount of funds allowed for an escrow account
  • Determine how much flood insurance is required under the regulation
  • Define the term “designated loan” as it applies to flood insurance
  • Distinguish between handling escrow shortages and handling escrow deficiencies
  • Understand the requirements related to private flood insurance


This webinar will cover escrow accounts (also known as impound accounts for taxes and insurance) and flood insurance requirements from beginning to end: from flood insurance determinations and deciding whether insurance is required to handling coverage lapses, from making the initial determination of the amounts needed for an escrow account to handling payments and annual calculations of surplus or deficiency, as well as initial and ongoing notice requirements. 

Did you know that not all properties in a designated flood hazard area require insurance? Are you aware of the requirements for escrow accounts when loans are paid off, transferred, or terminated? Whether new or a seasoned pro, this webinar has something for everyone.


This informative session is directed to loan processors, loan officers, loan clerical staff, staff responsible for escrow or flood insurance calculation or maintenance, auditors, and compliance personnel. This webinar will also help you answer borrowers’ questions at closing.
