Escrow : What is it ?


A contractual arrangement in which a third party receives and disburses money or documents for the primary transacting parties, with the disbursement dependent on conditions agreed to by the transacting parties, or an account established by a escrow agent for holding funds on behalf of that agent's principal or some other person until the consummation or termination of a transaction

( Source : Wikipedia )


Very simply defined, an escrow account is a deposit of funds, a deed or other instrument by one party for the delivery to another party upon completion of a particular condition or event.


Why Do I Need an Escrow ?


Whether you are the buyer, seller, lender or borrower, you want the assurance that no funds or property will change hands until ALL of the instructions in the transaction have been followed. The escrow holder has the obligation to safeguard the funds and/or documents while they are in the possession of the escrow holder, and to disburse funds and/or convey title only when all provisions of the escrow have been complied with.


Escrow: How Does it Work ?


The principals to the escrow: buyer, seller, lender, borrower: cause escrow instructions, most usually in writing, to be created, signed and delivered to the escrow agent. If a bank is involved, he will normally provide the escrow officer with the information necessary for the preparation of your escrow instructions and documents.


The escrow agent will process the escrow, in accordance with the escrow instructions, and when all conditions required in the escrow can be met or achieved, the escrow will be "closed." Each escrow, although following a similar pattern, will be different in some respects, as it deals with your property and the transaction at hand.


The duties of an escrow holder include; following the instructions given by the principals and parties to the transaction in a timely manner; handling the funds and/or documents in accordance with the instruction; paying all bills as authorized; responding to authorized requests from the principals; closing the escrow only when all terms funds in accordance with instructions and provide an accounting for same : the Closing or Settlement Statement.


Who Chooses the Escrow ?


The selection of the escrow holder is normally done by agreement between the principals. It is the right of the principals to use an escrow holder who is competent and who is experienced in handling the type of escrow at hand. There are laws that prohibit the payment of referral fees; this affords the consumer the best possible escrow services without any compromise caused by a person receiving a referral fee.
