Escrow Services in Panama
We offer Panama Escrow Services to buyers
and sellers of properties in Panama or any other asset or
service outside of Panama, including deposits in Panama bank
accounts. We protect Panama property sellers, buyers and lenders
from problems affecting Panama title ownership.
What is the procedure: In the case of a
property transaction in Panama, our firm would receive the
full payment from the Buyer, and at the closing, we would
disburse payment to the Seller, disburse payment to the Broker
(for realtor commissions, if any), disburse payment to the
construction company (for property development, if any), disburse
payment to the attorney (for legal work such as title search,
buy/sell contract, title transfer, etc.), and disburse payment
to any other party directly involved in the transaction that
must be paid as part of the buy/sell agreement.
Purposes of our escrow services:
- Provide the seller with the assurance that the buyer has
the funds to pay for the transaction, since the escrow company
can confirm that the funds have been paid to the escrow account.
- Provide the buyer with the assurance that the various parties
involved in the transaction will be paid according to the
buy/sell contract, so to avoid any after purchase claims.
- Provide the buyer with the assurance that the property
has had a proper title search completed, a proper buy/sell
contract has been executed, and the legalities of the transaction
have been met to protect the buyers interests.
Deposit Instructions Procedures:
- Sign the Escrow Agreement because through this contract
regulates terms and conditions of the escrow services that
are provided and defines the relationship between the buyer
and the seller, and this agreement is required by the bank
to clear the funds.
