Escrows

Secure your company’s interests by ensuring trouble-free and secure transactions

Overview

 

An escrow account is created wherein funds, securities, evidences of titles to properties and other documents are deposited with the escrow agent acting as the neutral party between at least two parties. Typical of an escrow agreement would be on sale and purchase of real properties or shares of stocks of a company where the parties are the buyer and seller, real estate developer where escrow account is required by the DHSUD, and initial public offering where shares of stockholders are held in escrow within a prescribed period before and after listing of the issue.

Benefits of appointing an Escrow Agent:

  • Prudent safekeeping of the escrowed funds and/or documents.
  • Customized agreement is provided where the terms and conditions as agreed between the two parties are appropriately laid out, ensuring that interests and rights of both parties are protected.
  • Professional administration by the escrow agent ensuring that the escrowed funds and/or documents are released to the designated party upon satisfaction of the terms and conditions of the agreement.
  • Peace of mind for parties as the escrow agent is ready to assist at any stage of the transaction.
