The Virginia Post-Licensing: Escrow Requirements
At the foundation of any real estate transaction is the transfer of funds from one party to another. Real estate professionals act as intermediaries in this process, commonly handling funds entrusted to them from one party or the other as part of the transaction. These funds, referred to as escrow funds, may involve earnest money deposits, security deposits, or rent payments. The proper handling of escrow funds is a fundamental responsibility of real estate licensees, and it must be done with care and integrity.

During this three-hour course, students will learn: 

  • Current processes and requirements involved in managing and accounting for escrow funds
  • The requirements involved in handling escrow accounts
  • How escrow funds work in the course of a real estate transaction
  • An overview of Virginia laws and regulations that apply to the handling of escrow funds
  • Best practices to avoid commingling funds and to avoid overages or shortages in escrow accounts
  • The differences between a deed of trust and a mortgage
  • An overview of Virginia’s power of sale foreclosure process
  • Real-world examples and case studies in managing and improperly handling escrow funds.
