Re: How do I get my escrowed property taxes lowered in my monthly mortgage payment?

It's adjusted after the 12th month.  OR you can get a letter from you county auditor on his letterhead and submit it to your lender.

 

Some lenders will adjust and some will make you wait until the 12th month.  Chase told me to go ahead and submit.

 

For new homeowners, you're better off letting that adjust after the 12th month.  It seems there is always a shortage at month 12 & you don't want to be caught short...grrrrrr
