Escrow Officer Duties and Responsibilities


Our standards uphold the highest of integrity. We are thorough, responsible and impartial (a neutral third party) with all of our files. What to expect from me, (the escrow officer / agent) to complete several specific duties and responsibilities on the Buyer's and Seller's behalf (included in the cost of the escrow and title fees) are as follows, a "simplified check list" as it were:
  • Ordering of the preliminary (prelim) title report.
  • Securing payoff demands and/or beneficiary statements from existing lenders and requesting full reconveyances of any deed of trust or mortgages to be paid off in escrow.
  • Obtaining instructions and loan documents from the new lender.
  • Obtaining documents to clear any outstanding liens and judgments against the property. Arrange for them to be paid during escrow.
  • Issuing receipts for deposits of documents and holding funds in a separate "escrow account" for prorating taxes, interest, rents, utilities, HOA's, SID's, LID's etc.
  • Preparing buyers and seller's escrow instructions and seeing that all documents are properly executed in a timely order. Such as acquiring documents for the inspections and appraisals.
  • Determining after all monies received, when everything is going to be completed so the transaction can "close escrow" allowing commissions and proceeds to be dispersed.
  • Obtaining title insurance for the buyer and or the lender, arranging timely transfer of the fire and or flood insurance policy or seeing that the buyer secures a new policy.
  • Notarizing the necessary documents, such as grant deeds, deeds of trust, spousal deeds, powers of attorney and reconveyances (homesteading is performed after the deed recording therefore not part of the escrow process.)
  • Overnight shipping of escrow docs for signing in distant or remote locations such as out of state
  • Sending mobile notary public, should a customer have a disability or schedule conflict which would disallow ones ability to come to the office during business hours.
  • Provide a brief overview with clients of the escrow documents they are signing.
  • Provide copies of all signed and notarized documents.
  • Record the required notarized documents after the loan has funded.
  • Many title companies offer DISCOUNTS to the military, seniors and investors. Ask your Escrow Officer.


    NOTE: An escrow officer has no control of and cannot force any Lender to fund a loan.

    When all of the coordination's and conditions of the transaction have been met. Finally, recording, disbursing funds to the proper parties, delivering documents and preparing the final closing statements. At that time, the keys are given to the property purchaser by the Sellers agent.
