In Escrow

Definition of "In escrow"

The phrase used for the period in which the escrow agent communicates to both the buyer and the seller as to what documents or moneys have to be deposited with the escrow agent to satisfy the terms of the purchase and sale. The items collected include moneys to cover mortgage insurance premiums, taxes, hazard insurance, and title insurance. Title Insurance assures that no other person or entity has an ownership right to the property, confirmation that the seller has obtained an adequate loan to pay the purchase price, the property has been inspected for termites, and seller's original deed has been obtained.
