Important Note About Mortgage Companies
If property taxes are in escrow, property information will be made available to the mortgage companies; however, it is ultimately the responsibility of the property owner to ensure taxes are paid.
For questions regarding mortgage companies paying taxes on behalf of property owners, contact the mortgage company directly (especially, if there has been a recent change in mortgage companies).
