Generally Real Estate licensed persons or companies have to deposit the funds in the account of their client, a special trust or escrow account or with their principal's written permission and direct instruction, elsewhere. Mostly, payments go into Trust accounts and must be deposited in 48 hours. If you have problem with these issues, please call the Texas Real Estate Commission or go online to their website.
