220.0000 CHANGE IN OWNERSHIP
220.0190 Escrow Conditions. The general rule is that when a deed is delivered or recorded by an escrow holder prior to the time a condition or conditions specified in the escrow instructions are satisfied, the transfer is void and no title passes to the grantee. However, a party may be held to have waived a condition if the escrow closes without objection. When there is a waiver, either by express agreement or by inference from circumstances indicating an intent to waive, a change in ownership occurs. A subsequent default in payment by the buyer results in a second change in ownership. C 8/13/1984.
