“An escrow account is a separate account that a lawyer can set up in conjunction with their client. The account is generally set up with a bank and is used to hold money that the client deposits in relation to the home sales transaction. These are usually monetary amounts dedicated to closing costs, settlement costs, and other costs related to the formal closing process. When the time comes for the amounts to be used, they will be distributed as needed.
In some cases, certain legal issues can arise in relation to the escrow account. These may include:
- Commingling funds- The professional is not allowed to mix their personal funds into the escrow account, as the account should be used solely for the purpose of holding the client’s assets until the distribution of the assets
- Using funds for personal purposes- The professional cannot use the escrow account funds for their own personal use or gain
- Breach of contract- The account is to be used in a way that does not breach an escrow agreement or contract
- Fraud- Full disclosure and transparency are needed in order to prevent misrepresentation and similar issues”
