An escrow holder is a neutral third party who takes instructions based on the terms of the real estate transaction and, when necessary, the lender's requirements.

Serving as the communication link and liaison between all parties.
Requesting a preliminary title search to determine the condition of title to the property.
Requesting a beneficiary statement or payoff demand from existing lenders.

Complying with the lender's requirements in its instructions to escrow.
