Frequently Asked Questions

Why should our buyers use the Closinglock portal to make a payment instead of working directly with their bank?

By using the Closinglock portal, your buyers may avoid the risk of losing their funds to a fraudster. In addition, your buyers may avoid traveling to the bank, finding their checkbook, and making clerical errors (e.g., mistyping account information).

Sounds great for the buyers, but what’s in it for us at the Title Company?​

You won’t be subject to bounced checks due to insufficient funds or out-of-date checks. This qualifies as a “Good Funds” payment in all 50 states. We provide all proper documentation required by any lenders or title insurance providers. The Closinglock payment portal eliminates human error that your clients could provide and offers a clear linkage to a file number & buyer for all payments.

Our company receives a lot of calls from buyers who want to know if we have received their payment. How does sending the payment through Closinglock help?

We notify the buyer via text and email when the payment has successfully deposited into your escrow account, giving them peace of mind, and the documentation necessary to show proof of payment.

How much time is this going to take my staff to learn and do we have to completely change our process for collecting payments?

If you are already a Closinglock customer sending wire instructions to your buyers, there is no additional training or process changes required. In fact, allowing buyers to send payments through the Closinglock portal saves your company valuable time by eliminating the need to validate, scan, and deposit checks.

Is there any setup required with my escrow account to enable payments to be deposited into this account?

We are not sending the payment to the escrow bank account as an ACH Credit like other payment products, therefore no additional setup or permissions are required to receive payments from the buyer.
