Closing Agent Vs Escrow Agent Arent They The Same Thing

Closing Agent Vs Escrow Agent Arent They The Same Thing

In Florida Realtors’ contracts, there are spaces for the escrow agent’s information, including name, address and telephone number. Not only is this information required 

Separate and apart from that contract section, there’s another section that addresses who will choose the closing agent.

These two roles — escrow agent and closing agent — are often filled by the same entity. 

By understanding the difference, you may be able to avoid potential issues later in the transaction.
