Tex. Gov't Code Section 2116.007
Transfer of Depository Account Balance


In accordance with rules adopted under this chapter, a depository account holder may transfer any portion of the balance of the holder’s depository account by written demand or digital electronic instruction to another person.


The depository shall adjust the depository account balances of the depository accounts to reflect a transfer transaction between depository account holders on presentment of the written demand or other instruction by reducing the payor’s depository account balance and increasing the depository account balance of the payee accordingly.


If a depository account holder transfers to a payee who is not a depository account holder any portion of the balance of the depository account holder’s depository account, the depository shall, if the payee is otherwise eligible to open a depository account under applicable laws and depository policy, allow the payee to establish a depository account. The depository shall credit a newly established account on behalf of the payee and shall debit the payor’s account accordingly.
