124 Agent to furnish account to client


As soon as an agent is asked by his or her client to do so, and in any case not later than 28 days after the agent receives any money in respect of the transaction in his or her capacity as an agent, the agent must render to the person lawfully entitled to the money an account in writing, setting out particulars of all such money, and its application.


If an agent is in doubt on reasonable grounds as to the person who is lawfully entitled to any money, the agent must take all reasonable steps to ascertain as soon as practicable the person who is entitled and is not required to render an account under this section until the person lawfully entitled has been ascertained.
