17213.  

(a) An escrow agent shall not transact business pursuant to this division under any other name than that set forth in the articles of incorporation as filed with the commissioner.

(b) An escrow agent’s license is not transferable or assignable. Further, no license may be acquired, either in whole or in part, directly or indirectly, through stock purchase, foreclosure pursuant to a pledge or hypothecation, or other devices without the consent of the commissioner. Prior to the transfer of 10 percent or more of the shares of an escrow agent, the escrow agent shall file a new application for licensure as required by Section 17201. However, a new application for licensure shall not be required to be filed by the escrow agent if the transfer of 10 percent or more of the shares of the escrow agent will be made by an existing shareholder to another existing shareholder who also owns 10 percent or more of the shares of the escrow agent before the transfer.

(Amended by Stats. 1998, Ch. 174, Sec. 1. Effective January 1, 1999.)
