Mortgage Servicing: Escrow
  • You can make an escrow only payment through our Quick Pay system, by visiting one of our banking centers or mailing the payment to PO Box 36200, Colorado Springs, CO 80936-3620.
  • Your mortgage loan payment may have changed due to an increase or decrease in your annual insurance premium or property tax bill. Each year we are notified by your insurance company and county treasurer of your bill amount and we will adjust the escrow amount included in your total monthly payment to ensure we are collecting enough to pay your insurance and tax bill. Your monthly loan payment can also change if you have an Adjustable Rate Mortgage (ARM) loan (please reference your promissory note for details).
  • Escrow analysis is performed every 12 months on mortgage loans with escrow (tax and insurance) accounts associated with them. Our clients receive a detailed notice that breaks down the activity in their escrow account over the past 12 months, along with a projection for the next 12 months' activity.  It is at this time that a new payment is set for the client for the following 12 months. If it is determined that a client has too much in their escrow account, they will receive a refund check for that overage in the mail in the 2 weeks following the analysis. If it is determined that a client has too little, the shortage will be spread over the next 12 months and the client’s payment will reflect this increase. The client will also be given the option to pay for that shortage or deficiency up front to mitigate that portion of increase in their monthly payment.
  • Two months' escrow payments, also known as a "cushion". In order to mitigate a potential shortage in your account due to rising real estate taxes and property insurance, we keep a cushion in your escrow account.
  • We do pay interest on escrow accounts in certain states. We do this in accordance with the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA) and applicable state laws.
  • If your loan has an escrow account, then these bills are for your information only. Your tax and insurance bills will be paid with the funds in the escrow account by the bank. If you do not have an escrow account set up on your loan, these payments will be your responsibility.
  • If you have ACH set up, this payment will automatically update and pull correctly. If you have any other form of payment, you might need to manually update the payment amount.

  • Monthly mortgage statements are generated 14 days before the next payment is due. The delivery timeframes of the United States Postal Service (USPS) are unpredictable, so we can't guarantee when you'll receive it. For faster receipt, you can sign up for online statements through our Online Banking.
  • Yes, you can. Simply identify the additional funds in your payment to go to principal. If principal only, add a zero in the payment line.
  • You can email your request to LoanPayoffRequests@nbhbank.com, along with a signed authorization to release the information. We cannot provide a payoff by phone.

  • Once we receive your final payment we will send a Release of Deed to be recorded with the county clerk. Once we receive the recorded Release of Deed back from the County we will send you a copy, along with your original note marked "paid". This process usually takes no longer than 90 days.
