Trust funds are other people’s money (OPM). A licensed salesperson or associate broker must place all cash, checks or other items of value received in a brokerage capacity into the custody of a broker holding the licensee’s license as soon after receipt as practically possible. It is possible to receive things of value other than cash or checks like jewelry or a vehicle. In these cases, the Broker must make appropriate arrangements for the safekeeping of those items.
