My seller accepted an Offer to Purchase and Contract (Form 2-T) on his property yesterday and I called the buyer agent right away

Legal Q&A | Do I have to report that my listing is under contract to MLS before the Due Diligence Fee is paid?

QUESTION: My seller accepted an Offer to Purchase and Contract (Form 2-T) on his property yesterday and I called the buyer agent right away to give him the good news. I asked that the Due Diligence Fee check be overnighted to the seller and I gave him the seller’s address. The seller just called me to say that the Due Diligence Fee hasn’t arrived yet. I don’t have any reason to believe that the buyer won’t pay the DDF, but I want to know if I have to change the status of the listing in MLS before the Due Diligence Fee has been delivered. The seller wants me to continue showing the property in case the contract falls through.
