Sales Inspection Report And Exclusive Agency Agreement
For example, on Thursday morning, the agent will give you a copy of the unsigned agreement and this fact sheet that you read and review carefully. On Friday afternoon, sign the agency contract and waiver form. The agency contract becomes immediately mandatory and the agent can start selling your home. 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. 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. 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 agency contract can be either permanent or for a fixed period (a fixed duration). 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.
