Is lawyer handling escrow or will a title and escrow company be involved? In my opinion check should always be written to title company directly and then yes it will be cashed and deposited and credited into your escrow account.

Absolutely!

It would against the law and common practice to just "hold" the check and not to deposit it. It is NOT to be "CASHED" that is for certain! Deposited, Yes!

The money belongs to the "transaction" until the date and time of closing. At that time the funds get disbursed according the the contract.
