Escrow is a service which provides the public with a means of protection in the handling of funds and/or documents. Escrow enables the Buyer and Seller to transact business with each other through a neutral party, thereby minimizing their risk.
In the Escrow, all parties involved give their instructions to this neutral intermediary, the “Escrow holder” whose duty it is to assure that no funds or property will change hands until all instructions have been carried to completion.
No they are not the same and we advise you to do some research. There are other licensing agencies such as the Department of Insurance and Bureau of Real Estate; none require the level of safeguarding and standards as the Department of Business Oversight (DBO).
Many don’t require things like trust fund insurance, financial liquidity requirements, net worth requirements and background checks. We believe these are vital to the protection of your funds and we strictly adhere to these guidelines and standards.
Whether you are the Buyer or the Seller, you want assurance that no funds or property will change hands until all of your instructions have been followed.
You can begin by sharing with us how we can make it go more smoothly for you. Do you like email or phone calls? Do you have multiple mailing addresses? Do you prefer to come to our office to sign documents or to work through them on your own at home?
Aside from that, watch for mailings and email from our office and do your best to respond quickly. Much of what we do is time sensitive and delays cause more delays down the line. Our documents should be clearly marked in the spots that need to be signed/initialed/notarized.
If you have questions on them, please be in touch! We’re happy to help!
