Can anyone enlighten me regarding how the repayment of an overpayment into our escrow account is supposed to work?

Escrow accounts are allowed to keep a certain amount over cost as a buffer, but in my case when I'd paid more than the cost and allowable buffer the escrow company automatically sent me a check for the balance and a form explaining how my escrow payment had been recalculated (reduced). All I had to do was to cash the check! <G>
