Escrow is a handy tool that protects multiple parties from losing their hard earned money during certain transactions. You typically hear of escrow used in real estate sales. A couple looking to buy a home will put their money in escrow, which is kind of like a holding fund, where it will be held until the deal is complete. The fact that the money is in escrow is satisfying to the seller because he or she knows that the couple is good for the cost of the home sale (or at least the down payment). The real estate agent gets the same satisfaction, knowing that his or her commission is intact and ready to be taken out as soon as the home sale goes through; and of course the couple gets satisfaction in knowing that their money is safe and sound until the deal is done. The problem happens when the money is taken out of escrow and not all of it is withdrawn. These extra or lost escrow amounts typically go to the treasury for state keeping, and that is where they have been building up. Now, whether you were a home buyer, seller or real estate agent, you may finally be able to get your hands on any amounts of lost escrow that may be coming to you.

Big purchases that require big money typically rely on what is known as escrow for ensuring that the funds are safe while the deal is in progress. Most people think of home buying when they think of escrow, and that would be an excellent example of this concept at work. The process of buying a home can be long and tedious. There is much to consider and the deal typically takes weeks or months to be finalized. Instead of the buyers transferring the thousands or millions of dollars directly to the home seller, the money can be put into escrow until the deal is finalized and the deed of the home finally changes hands.

Lost escrow amounts are another main contribution to the large amount of unclaimed money lying with the state treasure. Escrow amounts are the cash deposited with a third party during any deed between the two parties. Securing the amount separately assures both the parties involved in the agreement that the other party will not default either on the payment or the project. The escrow amount remains unpaid till all the conditions of the contract between the parties are met or it is paid partially after completion of every step of the project.
