What is escrow?
Defined simply, an escrow is a deposit of funds, deeds, or other instrument(s) by one party for the delivery to another party upon completion of a particular condition or event. In some cases, escrow is short-term, such as the deposit of earnest money pending the closing of a real estate sale. In other cases, escrow is long-term, where an instrument—such as a deed—is held for an extended period while installment payments are made against the purchase of an asset. The escrow is not closed and documents released until all conditions of the escrow agreement are met.
