DO NOT place copies of checks in the file that you receive with offers (on your listings). It does not count unless actually in our possession. Several times agents have gone so far as to complete Disbursement Forms without the buyer ever sending us the EM. Without having earnest money in our possession you are not doing your due diligence for your client. In the event either party argues over earnest money returns you would be in violation of license law and could be fined from the state.
If it is our listing update the MLS and the Listed database to indicate the property is under contract.
Provide association bylaws and docs to your client’s attorney.
