Sales Inspection Report And Exclusive Auction Agency Agreement

The agency contract becomes mandatory if the contracting entity (i.e. you signed as the owner [seller/seller] of the property or someone who is acting legally for you) and the agent signed it. There is then a one-business day cooling-off period during which you can terminate (or “revoke” the agreement). Saturday is included for reflection time, but not on public holidays. If you wish to terminate the contract, you must note this in writing. Check your agreement to see how much notification you need to give. Before you can market your property, the broker must sign a contract with you called an agency contract. An agency contract is a legally binding contract and it is important that you read and understand it. If you are not sure about the contractual terms, you should seek legal advice. The agency contract can be either permanent or for a fixed period (a fixed duration). A single representation contract is similar to an exclusive agency contract. You give a broker the right to sell the property, but you can find a buyer yourself. If you find a buyer who has not been introduced by the agent, no commission is payable to the agent.

The cooling-off period begins from the signing of the agreement and ends at 5 p.m. on the following working day or Saturday. For example, if you sign the agreement on a Friday, the cooling-off period will end on Saturday at 5 p.m. If you register on Saturday, the cooling-off period usually ends on Monday at 5 p.m., unless it is a public holiday, in which case it will end on Tuesday at 5 p.m. This happens when you are dealing with an agent who is part of a network of agents who work together to sell your home. It covers both auctions and private contracts. You pay a commission to the agent you signed up for. You can send it to the agent in person, transmit it or leave it in the agent`s office or at the address of the agency contract, by e-mail or fax. Be sure to keep a copy of your file.

You can negotiate with the agent the amount of commissions, fees or other expenses you may have to pay. Before signing an agreement, it`s a good idea to talk to some agents to compare prices. Ask each agent for a printed list of their fees and commissions and the expenses they have calculated. It is indeed an exclusive agency contract in which the property is auctioned. You have the right to negotiate the terms of the contract and to demand changes permitted by law. Changes to the agreement must be signed by all parties unless the agent revises its estimated sale price for your property. Exclusive agency contracts are usually used for the sale of housing. In this type of agreement, you give a broker the exclusive rights to sell your property. This may entitle the broker to a commission if the property is sold during the fixed term of the contract, even if the property is sold by you or another broker. The broker may also be entitled to a commission if the property is later sold to a person who negotiated with the original broker for the property. The draft contract must be 6 in the agent`s office. It is important that you appoint a lawyer or an intermediary to prepare the contract.

The agent may ask you to pay for advertisements, auction fees, cleaning, decoration or landscaping, if this is stipulated in the agreement. You may waive or waive your right to a cooling-off period by serving a separate waiver form when signing the agreement. The cooling-off period can only be waived if the agent has sent you at least one working day before signing the agency contract the following documents: For example, on Thursday morning, the agent gives you a copy of the signed agreement and this information sheet that you read and review carefully. . . .
