Hello Reader, I absolutely had to leave a kudos message for both Ms. Tiffany and Lorraine and their exceptional customer service skills. They were warm and inviting. They were extremely knowledgeable and patient with answering all the many questions I had as a first time home buyer navigating my way through the Escrow process.

Types of Escrow

  • Refinance

    The replacement of one or more loans with one or more new loans secured by the subject property.

  • Residential Sales

    Buying or selling a previously owned residence.

  • New Home Services

    Purchasing a home directly from the builder that may or may not still be under construction.

  • Loan Transactions

    New Loan transactions differ form refinances inasmuch as those would be a brand new loan in addition to existing encumbrances on the subject property(i.e. a loan made by an institutional lender, hard money lender, firend, or family member). Sometimes people find it necessary to obtain a brodge loan when their current residence is not selling, or closing in a timely manner, and their new residence cannot wait.

  • Commercial Refinances and Purchases

    Buying or Selling a property that is zoned for commercial or industrial use. This would include Apartment Building, Hotels or Motels, Investment Properties, Land Acquisitions, Office Buildings, Restaurants, Retial Properties, and Shopping Centers.

  • Investment Properties

    A property that is not occupied by the Owner(s). This type of transaction usually falls under the commercial/industrial umbrella. Most often the seller(s) are interested in a tax-deferred exchange (deferring the tax on the captial gain until a later time).

Escrows in California can be written performed by:

Licensed California Real Estate Brokers Governed by the Department of Real Estate
Title Companies Governed by the Insurance Commissioner
Independent Escrow Companies Governed by the Department of Business Oversight

Whether you are the buyer or the seller, you want assurance that no funds or property will change hands until all of the terms of the transaction have been completed with. With the increasing complexity of business, law and tax structures, it takes a trained professional to supervise the transaction

Most contracts that involve the transfer, lease or financing of real or personal property can be placed in escrow. You may be involved in escrow not only when you buy or sell a home but also when you buy a mobile home, sell a business or transfer stock in a closely held business. Prizefighters have even been known to have their purses guaranteed through an escrow depository. The buyer or seller should demand the protection of escrow for any transaction which involves a substantial investment.

An Escrow Officer is not a legal counselor and cannot give you legal advice. Remember, the purpose of escrow is to take and comply with instructions, to carry out the mutual agreement of the parties. The Escrow Officer must remain neutral until agreement is reached.

The transaction should not be negotiated in the escrow office nor should an Escrow Officer become involved in the negotiation.

If negotiations have been conducted through a real estate agent, that person, or his/her broker, should be your primary consultant.

The role as an independent agent prohibits the Escrow Officer from answering many of your questions. However, a knowledgeable Escrow Officer whose responsibility is giving impartial service to all the parties, will refer you to the proper source for your answers. An Escrow Officer will often suggest that the customer seek the advice of legal counsel or tax consultant.

When instructions of all parties to the escrow have been carried out, the closing can take place. All outstanding funds are collected at this time and all costs must be paid. Title to the property, whether real or personal, will be transferred. All specified documents are recorded or filed at this time.

Fees and charges are controlled by many factors and depend largely upon the type of transaction and the terms of your agreement. However, there are certain charges which are considered to be normal. These would include fees charged by a lender in connection with obtaining a new loan or in paying off the old one. They may also include recording fees, title insurance policy premium, documentary transfer taxes, prepaid taxes and insurance and escrow fees. Your Escrow Officer will provide you with an itemized statement.

Buyer’s closing funds preferably should be in the form of a wire transfer to the Escrow Holder upon the request of the Escrow Holder. A Cashier’s check is also acceptable but may require a day or two to make sure it has cleared. DO NOT deposit a personal check into escrow for closing. This will delay the closing since these funds must be collected before the closing can take place. An out-of-town check can cause a week to ten days delay in closing.

Upon closing, review the closing statements to determine that the costs were allocated in accordance with your instructions.

Any recorded documents to which you are entitled will be mailed to you after the escrow closes by the County Recorder’s Office or Secretary of State in the case of personal property filing.

The amount of funds required from a Buyer/Borrower for closing is based on the current information available to the Escrow Officer at the time the file is figured. If the closing date changes due to unforeseen circumstances, or charges or fees are revised the Escrow Officer will be unable to make adjustments to pay all the closing costs. A “refundable pad” or “buffer” is used in making these final adjustments and unused money is refunded to the Buyer/Borrower.

After signing the loan documents are returned to the lender for review and the loan funding is scheduled. The Escrow Officer will be working closely with the Lender to coordinate the scheduling of these final details. Typically the escrow will close two to three days after signing of loan documents.

When the Escrow Officer confirms that the recording is completed, the Real Estate Agents are notified and keys are distributed by the Real Estate Agents in accordance with the terms of the purchase contract.
