»Agents must adhere to escrow money requirements.

A sales associate who receives any deposit must deliver the deposit to the broker or employer no later than the end of the next business day following receipt. It's a violation of Section 475.25(1)(d), Florida Statutes, when a licensee fails to account or deliver, to any person who's entitled to such accounting and delivery, any personal property, such as money.
