While in escrow, the buyer and seller have several responsibilities to ensure a smooth process:

  • Buyers should perform due diligence, such as property inspections, obtaining financing, and reviewing the property title to ensure there are no issues that could impact ownership.
  • Sellers need to comply with agreed-upon repairs, maintain the property in good condition, and meet any other conditions specified in the agreement.
  • Both parties should stay in communication with the escrow agent, providing all required documentation and fulfilling their respective obligations as specified in the escrow agreement​​.
