Help the community by answering this question:


In California, the broker is required to deposit the check into a trust fund account (read "neutral" - could be escrow account) within 3 days of the offer being accepted. However there are exceptions. For example, if there are written directions from the offeree stating otherwise, the broker is obligated to those directions. Best to check with your local laws.
