Escrows in La Verne
An escrow is a financial arrangement where a third party holds and regulates payment of the funds required for two parties involved in a given transaction. It helps make transactions more secure by keeping the payment in a secure account, which is released only after terms of an agreement are met, as overseen by the escrow company.
