Escrow Services

Riverside Escrow is a leading provider of high quality and cost effective escrow services.

We act as a third party in holding funds or property until it can be released on terms agreed by the parties to the transaction. Escrow services give certainty to the parties to the transaction in that:

  • the buyer or fundraiser knows that the property or funds exist and will be made available to it when the transaction completes; and
  • the seller or investor knows that the property or funds will not be released to the buyer or fundraiser until the transaction completes

Types of Escrow Services

To give a better understanding of the types of services which we can provide, we have included below some detailed examples of how an escrow service could be of use to you.
