Chapter 24 1 of 10 - Serena and Lucy want to make an offer on their dream home. The seller is requesting a very large earnest money deposit with serious offers on the home. Serena and Lucy have some cash set aside for this purpose but are short of the amount the sellers are requesting. Do they have any other options?

The current balance of the trust account is $430,000. The earnest deposit funds portion of the account totals $415,000; the broker's initial deposit totals $15,000. Is Jackson guilty of commingling? No, he can clearly show through well-kept records his initial deposit of $15,000 and the trust fund money of $430,000. He is not earning interest from any part of this account, including his initial deposit of personal funds. Yes, he should not have any money of his own ever mixed with clients' earnest money deposits. Yes, Jackson's initial deposit to open the account should have only totaled about $1,000. The $15,000 he deposited of his own money to open the account is considered excessive.
