Real estate trust accounts are typically separate accounts that are municipally required to be maintained and monitored by licensed real estate professionals (brokers, property management companies, individually licensed property managers, etc.) for the purpose of depositing certain funds received on behalf of a client or business entity. A real estate brokerage company, or similar licensed business, will usually set up a trust account at a bank or other lawfully recognized depository. The funds deposited in the trust account are received by a broker, salesperson, property manager, or the like on behalf of an individual (usually the buyer, renter, or lessee), and are held in the performance of any acts for which a real estate license is required. 

The main purpose of this course is to help further educate licensed real estate and similar industry professionals about trust accounts that are used in a variety real estate formats. Trust accounts are mandated by various municipal entities, and often guided by specific state legislation. This review will delineate multiple areas where trust account types are required, and explain how they work and function within numerous real estate vocations and corresponding business relationships.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even though I am a licensed real estate agent, I don't deal a lot with the trust accounts. I am an employee of an agent so this is not a regular part of my duties. Informative. Lots to know and keep track of.
