Termination rights: No, we`re not talking about the rights of the cyborg assassins of the future (these are Terminator rights) – but this section is pretty important, so listen. If the agent or buyer is to terminate the employment relationship, termination rights in principle determine how you should dissolve. Expect to find the language like: Reasons for termination, as termination should take place, how much compensation (if available) the agent receives, or how much notification should be given in advance. Termination tends to become sticky (one of the reasons why you might want to think twice before hiring a friend or family member). In addition to knowing exactly what this section requires you to do, make sure you know how to choose the right realtor to avoid this chaos in the first place. Exclusive Buyer and Representation: Consider this as the “Other People Don`t See” section. This requires you to work only with the agent or broker with whom you sign – at least until the life is extended. If this causes engagement problems and you feel a cold sweat coming, take a deep breath. You are not locked up if you go south with your agent. Just talk about your situation with the agency broker. You will probably be able to find another agent at your broker who fits better. Manufacturers and suppliers of products often use agents acting on their behalf to promote sales, both in the manufacturer`s home country and abroad.
As a general rule, a formal agreement is signed to determine the commission collected by the agent, the territory, the duration and other conditions under which the client and the agent jointly conduct business. You can hire someone to be your agent for all possible purposes. Some of the most common examples of an agency are hiring someone to act like: Trust your realtor? Interviewing your realtor before hiring them is one of the best ways to assess whether they are there to serve you or to collect a commission check. Use these questions during your agent interviews to exclude agents who don`t turn their backs on you. Despite the convenience and need for agency agreements, there may be some drawbacks. The main risk in the legal relationship between the client and the agent is that the adjudicating entity may be held liable for a fault committed by the agent. When an agent makes an error or engages in illegal activity while representing the client, the client can be considered technically as the act, since the agent essentially acted as the “main” obligatory.
