Escrow

SFL Title’s experienced escrow settlement agents are well trained in real estate closing procedures and the issuance of title insurance. In an escrow settlement, SFL Title acts as an objective third party that follows the instructions of the transacting parties.  Our wealth of technical experience and ability to manage the transaction details is your path to a smooth closing. SFL Title’s goal is to get the job done efficiently and accurately.

The buyer can instruct the settlement agent to disburse the purchase price only upon the satisfaction of certain prerequisites and conditions. The seller can instruct the settlement agent to retain possession of the deed to the buyer until the seller’s requirements, including receipt of the purchase price, are met. Both rely on the settlement agent to carry out faithfully their mutually consistent instructions relating to the transaction and to advise them if any of their instructions are not mutually consistent or cannot be carried out
