The crucial query
However, you might be asking, “What is escrow?” Not to worry; escrow is a term that many people are unfamiliar with. Escrow, in its simplest form, is a procedure that enables an impartial third party (the escrow business) to retain funds and documents on behalf of the parties engaged in a real estate transaction.
In an escrow transaction, the buyer, seller, lender, and borrower are often involved. The Residential Purchase Agreement and Joint Escrow Instructions set forth the requirements that must be satisfied before closing, and it is the agent of the escrow company’s duty to comply with all such requirements.

What will it be like to work with Neighborhood Escrow?
We’ll handle every detail for you at Neighborhood Escrow. The escrow officer will receive written escrow instructions from the buyer, seller, lender, and borrower. In the majority of transactions, the information required for this process will be provided by the real estate agents with feedback from their clients.
After receiving all instructions and paperwork, Neighborhood Escrow‘s escrow officer will proceed to handle the escrow. Processing the escrow typically entails a number of different procedures, such as verifying that the parties’ instructions are consistent, paying bills as directed, addressing requests from the parties that have been permitted, and managing all cash and documents in accordance with their instructions. The escrow officer will close the escrow and deliver the money and documents to the right people once all instructions have been followed correctly.
Escrow fees should be paid by who?
Escrow fees include the grant deed registration charge, title insurance, inspection fees, notary fees, and document transfer tax. Depending on local customs and practices, as well as the preferences of the individuals involved, these fees may be paid by either the buyer or the seller (or even the lender in some circumstances). In many cases, the costs of the escrow business will be divided equally by the buyer and seller.
