Here's Why Your Monthly Mortgage Payment May Increase



If your home is mortgaged, your lender will likely handle the payment from your escrow account, eliminating the need to gather the specified amount separately, as you've been setting aside funds through your monthly mortgage payment.


The monthly contribution to your escrow account is determined by previous tax years. If like many, your property value increased significantly during the reassessment last year, it implies a rise in property taxes.
