What do Escrow Professionals do?
Escrow professionals act as a neutral third party in a transaction. Escrow professionals are typically employed by an independent escrow company, a title insurance company, or a real estrate broker. Escrow professionals handle the transfer of funds and documents between the parties to a transaction. Escrow professionals ensure that all conditions are met before money is paid and a deed is recorded.
Why do Escrow Officers, Escrow Agents and Escrow Companies need E&O Insurance?
Escrow professionals face a long list of exposures to E&O and malpractice claims, including, but not limited to, the following*:
- Breach of contract
- Breach of fiduciary duty
- Failure to collect all funds
- Funds released before all conditions are met
- Failure to make appropriate payment
- Improper or inadequate documentation
- Funds wired to wrong account
* The coverage provided by insurance companies is subject to limitations and exclusions. Please refer to the actual insurance policy for details regarding coverage, exclusions, and limitations.
Even if an escrow professional acted professionally and in good faith during a transaction, he or she can still be sued and could easily face tens of thousands of dollars just in defense costs.
It is therefore vital for escrow officers, escrow agents and escrow companies to have the proper E&O insurance protection.
