Q1. What is an Escrow Account in a bank?
In simple words, an Escrow Account is a financial instrument held by a neutral third-party who controls something valuable on behalf of two other parties until the ultimate party meets the requirements to complete the transaction. It is a mediator that reduces risk on both sides of a transaction. An Escrow Account can hold assets, funds, securities, etc.
Q2. What is an Escrow Account used for?
An Escrow Account solves trust issues between two parties, especially when the buyer is worried about their investment and wants to make sure they receive goods in a satisfactory manner, whereas sellers want affirmation of ultimately receiving payment without any hiccups.
Q3. Can I withdraw money from my Escrow Account?
Until the set obligations are fulfilled, the receiving party cannot make any withdrawals from an Escrow Account. This makes it a potent financial instrument that eliminates any trust issues in more significant transactions.
Q4. How does an Escrow Account work?
An Escrow Account (including bank-based Escrow Accounts) is a third-party account that holds the funds and disburses them only after all the conditions as per the agreement have been met by the parties involved. No withdrawals can be made by the receiving party until they fulfill the obligations. Therefore, this is a powerful instrument that eliminates any trust issues.
