Escrow accounts

We provide Escrow Services to facilitate the successful conclusion of major transactions through the mediation of an independent third party ie: Bank.  Major transactions include purchase / sale / lease of a business / land or any other property.

As trustworthiness and reliability are among the prime requirements of a neutral third party, Commercial Bank is ideal for the task, being among the most trusted financial institutions in Sri Lanka.

The benefit of such a service to the Seller is that it provides a comfort that the Buyer is committed and has shown its commitment with the funds deposited into the escrow account.  The benefit to the Buyer is that the funds are not released to the Seller, until such time the due diligence of the Buyer is completed and the transaction is deemed concluded. The Seller and Buyer would both draw comfort from the fact that the Escrow Account is maintained by an Independent Third party, the Bank.

If you are in need of an Escrow Account provider for any service, Commercial Bank may be able to offer this service to you.
