Escrow company allowed payment method?

Are you talking about a transaction during the purchase of a property @Tabria Josey ? The escrow officer is the agent for the Buyer and Seller, to move money around. She follows the closing instructions from those two parties. It is often the Lender of the Buyer who dictates the path of the funds, often discovered during their 'Proof of Funds' period when one qualifies for the loan. The escrow officer may be set up to accept your funds transfer by wire or, by you bringing a counter check from your bank to the escrow office. I have done both. Don't be shy to ask, if you want a different method (like bringing a stack of money.)
