Michigan Realtors®, in conjunction with an extraordinary effort by many local associations, has made Primary endorsements for candidates running for Governor, the U.S. Senate, the U.S. House, the Michigan Senate, and the Michigan House of Representatives. Realtor® Voter Cards were sent to members, highlighting Primary-Endorsed candidates on the state and federal levels in your area who support real estate industry issues, such as:
  • the protection of private property rights,
  • preserving the American dream of home ownership, and
  • continuing to fight for tax reforms and reducing burdensome regulations on our business.

Legal Lines – Question of the Month
 
With the help of McClelland & Anderson, we are taking the most recently asked questions from our legal hotline and putting them in E-news. We will be featuring a different question each issue.
 
QUESTION:

I have a small, two-person brokerage firm. My office policy is that my company does not hold earnest money deposits. Our purchase contract form provides that the earnest money deposit will be held either by a local title company or the listing broker. Is my firm required to have a trust account?
 
ANSWER:


No. If your firm does not ever hold earnest money deposits (or any other funds belonging to others), you are not required to set up a trust account.
