Hi Wot,

Is the closing agent who's coming to sign the documents going to know the answer to this?
When you say "coming to close this" I am assuming you are signing at home, or your office, or some place other than the title orescrow office, yes? If so, you are probably going to be sitting with a mobile notary, not an escrow agent... and its extremely unlikely the notary will know much of anything at all about the balance details of your transactions.

Will they know what the current escrow account balance is?
Not likely. The person you want to get this from is the escrow agent.

Further, you can have a fairly rough ballpark idea of the amount in escrow you'll get a check back for if you call customer service from your current payment statement & ask them how much escrow balance you have at this point.
