escrow


escrow
Instrumento, consistente en un título, dinero o bienes, que constituye prueba de una obligación entre dos o más partes y que queda en poder de un tercero.

Este lo entrega únicamente si se cumple una condición determinada. En la práctica comercial, esta condición generalmente consiste en la ejecución de un acto (p. ej., un pago) por quien debe recibir el instrumento. El escrow también se utiliza en transacciones familiares (p. ej., cuando a raíz del fallecimiento de una persona se entrega un instrumento a un miembro de la familia).
