WHY RETAIN AN INDEPENDENT ESCROW COMPANY?

 
Most real estate transactions in the State of California utilize the services of an escrow company. Ironically, escrow remains one of the least understood elements of the real estate process.

Because of this, buyers and sellers often place their faith in the real estate broker or lender to recommend an escrow company. What many consumers don't realize, however, is that they are entrusting this escrow company to safeguard their funds being held in trust. In addition, it is the primary responsibility of the escrow holder to ensure that all of the necessary instructions in the real estate agreement are executed.

The responsibility to protect the consumers' interests should not be taken lightly. The escrow holder must remain impartial during the escrow period to ensure fair representation of all parties. It is crucial, then, that the broker, lender or consumer makes a knowledgeable and informed decision in choosing an escrow company.

Higher Standards

The stringent requirements by the Department of Business Oversight assure that every licensed escrow company has met the highest standards of the industry. Consumer protection regulations unique to licensed escrow companies include:

- A Certification Program for all escrow officers in the company's employ, including fingerprinting and background checks by the Department of Justice;
- A requirement that an escrow officer with at least five years experience be on-site;
- Financial stability requirement, including at a minimum one CPA audit a year; and, frequent surprise examinations conducted by the Department of Corporations;
- Prohibiting employment of convicted felons or anyone who has been disbarred from the real estate industry;
- Membership with the Escrow Agents' Fidelity Corporation which provides a $5 million fidelity bond;
- Company's sole business is doing escrow, which requires a higher level of state regulatory requirements and oversight.
