Escrow Servicing

Easy for You & Easy for Them

No two customers are alike. No two transactions are alike. And nobody is more keenly aware of this than the escrow servicing team at First National Bank Alaska. We offer you options to save time and money.

  • Owner or seller-financed real estate sales
  • Selling a business
  • Mobile home sales
  • Vehicle or ATV sales
  • Equipment sales
  • Stocks and business purchases

  • Private loans
  • Sale of liquor license
  • Healthcare providers and patients
  • Leasing agents and businesses offering in-house financing

First National's Rental Account or Collection by Payee Only Account can free up your precious resources by tracking and disbursing proceeds and emailing consolidated payment information and delinquency reports.

Rent Collection Program

If you have tenants, we can help you take care of everything: payments, deposits, accounting, reports, even late payment reminders to your tenants. When you sign up, the process is simple:

  • Provide First National with your tenants' names, mailing addresses, property addresses, payment amounts, due dates and late charge information.
  • Your rental income is disbursed to your First National deposit account.
  • Receive weekly and monthly reports showing income and payment status and a year-end recap report. You can even set up automatic late payment reminder notices.

A one-time set-up fee is just $20 per unit, with an annual $65 fee. There are no additional costs for disbursements to your First National deposit account. An additional fee is charged for electronic funds transfer (EFT) to another financial institution. Cashiers checks can also be issued for an additional fee.
