Trust Services Overview

Escrow Services

An escrow is a method of transferring or exchanging property through the use of a neutral third party, an escrow agent. As escrow agent in your transaction, First Northern Bank holds in safekeeping original documents, deeds, titles, or other security until the terms of the agreement have been met and the items are released. As escrow agent, First Northern Bank provides the following services:

  • Holds escrow documents in safekeeping
  • Processes all payments and disburses proceeds to seller
  • Maintains an accounting of all transactions
  • Provides tax reporting at year-end

Please note, First Northern Bank does not escrow for taxes and insurance. Arrangements must be made separately between buyer and seller to ensure taxes and insurance are paid by the appropriate party.
