Escrow Issues


What is an escrow and an escrow agent? What does it mean to have funds or documents in escrow?


An escrow agent is typically a third party designated to hold an item (usually funds, but sometimes certain documents, such as a deed and/or mortgages) for a certain time or until the occurrence of a condition, at which time the escrow agent is to hand over the item to another party.  Typically the escrow agent will be the title company, and the funds and documents that they are holding include any deposits made under the contract to purchase the property, as well as the deed and the mortgage instruments.  In many home purchase contracts, the initial deposit or earnest money will be held by an escrow agent until the closing.  In some states, the entire closing happens through an escrow agent, with all funds and documents being collected and distributed in the manner required by specific and detailed written escrow instructions.






 


Zoning Issues


How does the buyer know how the land surrounding the property will be used?


Typically, the seller does not guarantee how the area surrounding the property will be used.  Some purchase agreements ask the seller to warrant what the seller knows about surrounding property uses that might interfere with the use of the home, but many do not.  If a buyer is concerned, he or she should contact the property appraiser or tax collector for the county in which the property is located and determine who owns the surrounding land, or speak to the zoning or planning department of your local municipality prior to purchasing the property to understand how surrounding uses may affect you.  The title commitment only discloses information about the property being purchased and does not attempt to inform the buyer about surrounding uses.  Sometimes a survey will identify the owners of any immediately adjacent parcels.  The purchaser needs to take responsibility for finding out what uses may affect him or her. The buyer can ask the neighboring property owners if they know of plans to develop land surrounding the property.  The buyer may also wish to talk with the building or zoning office of the local municipality to confirm the zoning of surrounding property so as to know what kinds of uses might be made in the future, although zoning can be changed.
