Buy & Sell Escrow



Purchase or sell real estate properties, shares of stock of corporations or other kinds of assets with confidence even if the seller or buyer is not personally known to you. Ensure that the conditions of your transaction will be finalized conveniently.

BDO Trust and Investments Group can help you fulfill this objective through its Buy & Sell Escrow Agency arrangement. BDO-Trust will act as an independent third party to protect the interests of contracting parties while the conditions of a principal contract are being fulfilled.

For example, the seller deposits the securities, documents or other properties to the Escrow Agent while the buyer delivers the cash or other properties also to the Escrow Agent. When the specific conditions contained in the Escrow Agreement are met, BDO Trust will release the property to the buyer and the seller gets the cash or any form of consideration in exchange for the property sold.
