Whether you are an individual or a business, buying or selling land, property, shares, or acquiring/transferring ownership can be risky. You may be concerned about reliability of the other party or fraud. That's where ABA Escrow Service helps you – a reliable and secure method for buyers and sellers involved in high-value transactions.
How it works
ABA Escrow Service works in three simple steps:
- Buyer and Seller agree on the terms of the transaction.
- Buyer transfers funds to a designated Escrow account at ABA.
- ABA releases funds to the seller after the terms and conditions agreed by the parties have been fulfilled.

Examples of risks ABA Escrow Service can protect from

It protects you from the risk of non-payment.
- Title transfer: If you are a real estate buyer, you may worry about the transfer of the property title to you. Using ABA Escrow Service protects you from the risk of the seller not delivering the title documents or delivering them improperly.
- Buying/selling shares: ABA Escrow Service ensures that the seller receives their funds and the buyer receives the shares they paid for. ABA will hold the purchase amount until specific conditions are met, including the transfer of ownership of the shares, confirmation of their authenticity, and verification that there are no liens or encumbrances on the shares.
