Funds are held in escrow pending a real estate transaction. If the transaction does not go through, escrow will need to be canceled. A dispute may arise over where the money held in escrow should go or over additional fees being assessed. A dispute could also arise if one of the parties does not comply with the escrow terms. An escrow officer may also be involved in a dispute for acting negligently in some way and impairing the transaction. A transaction or a substantial amount of money could be on the line in this type of dispute, so it is important to enlist the services of an experienced real estate attorney.
