Loan closes in Apr, 1st payment in June, 2 months cushion, taxes paid in Dec, escrow year is calendar year. How much do we collect at closing? Is it 3 months (May + 2 cushion)? Title co says seller gets credit and 7 months is collected from buyer........(Jan, Feb, Mar, Apr + the (May + 2 cushion). I don't understand. Why? Reading the example from FDIC RESPA Escrow calendar, this does not hold up.
