Does the buyer have to deliver the Additional EMD by any particular time of day on the agreed-upon date?

Legal Q&A | Is an Additional EMD due by any particular time of day?

QUESTION: I'm representing a seller who has a property under contract using the Offer to Purchase and Contract (form 2-T). The contract calls for the payment of an Additional Earnest Money Deposit. I know that time is "of the essence" regarding delivery of the Additional EMD. There's a date in the blank but no time of day. My question is, does the buyer have to deliver the Additional EMD by any particular time of day on the agreed-upon date?
