Contracts, including applicable deadlines, often vary. See your contract, and speak to applicable professionals, to determine how any deadline may apply to you.
Requirements

This is the date on or before which the Buyer must turn over their earnest money to the specified escrow holder.

A dated, time-stamped receipt should be obtained and shared with other parties.

NOTE: This deadline applies only if earnest money was not delivered with the offer.

Requirements MET

The contract continues.

Requirements NOT Met

The contract does not appear to specify! So, it’s something to contemplate and to discuss with your lawyer.
