Most people’s idea of a real estate sales transaction often involves a buyer, a seller and their respective agents. What’s missing? The vital role played by Escrow and Title Companies. Whether you’re a buyer or seller, lender or borrower, effectively choosing the best company to work with is extremely important. Here’s some more helpful information from Durwin:
Why you need an Escrow Company - Because you want the guarantee that no funds or property will be transferred until any and all of the instructions in the transaction have been met. The escrow holder has the duty to safeguard the funds and/or documents while the transaction is in progress and to only disburse funds and/or convey title when all conditions and provisions of the escrow have been complied with.
Why you need Title Insurance - Because it protects you from the most common hidden risks that can cause a loss of title or create an encumbrance on title. A few examples would be false impersonation of the true owner of the property, forgery, releases or wills, instruments executed under invalid or expired power of attorney, undisclosed or missing heirs, mistakes in recording legal documents, misinterpretations of wills, deeds by persons of unsound mind and minors, deeds by persons supposedly single, but in fact married, fraud and liens for unpaid estate, inheritance, income or gift taxes.
