Most brokers do not object to adding a language to the listing agreement that requires the sale to be concluded before the broker has earned his commission. In addition, it is in the seller`s interest to extend this concept so that the broker is not entitled to any other costs, indemnities or refunds unless the sale is closed. For example, the seller would not want to pay the broker all or part of a lost count. The seller would also not want to reimburse the broker for any fees or charges, unless the broker and seller have expressly negotiated a refund or “installation plan” to reimburse the broker for certain expenses such as creating a brochure and advertising. If the seller agrees to such a refund provision, the seller should consider: limiting the types of expenses eligible for reimbursement, requiring that eligible expenses be paid only to parties who are not related to or employed by the broker, and capping the seller`s maximum obligation to reimburse. Regardless of the type of reference contract used in a commercial real estate transaction, your customers must be informed of the rights and obligations arising from the reference contract. The same applies when advising the agent or seller of commercial real estate, as their right to compensation for their hard work depends on the validity of the listing contract. The smoothing agreement is not a boilerplate document; Rather, it is a document that requires careful consideration, review, negotiation and elaboration. For good reason, real estate agents may have encouraged many state legislators and some courts to provide laws or case law to protect the broker`s right to collect a commission. This protection is often granted by the fact that the broker`s right to receive a commission is not conditioned after the conclusion of a sale, but only by the manufacture of a ready and competent buyer ready to fill the seller`s price. Whether or not this result is prescribed by law or case law, the legibility agreement often provides for it contractually. If, under these conditions, the payment of a commission protects a broker, it creates the possibility that the seller will pay a commission to the broker, even if the seller does not sell his property, a result that is clearly not expected of the seller or that is acceptable to the seller. The second type of listing agreement is the Net Listing Agreement.
In this type of reference contract, a brokerage commission is the amount whose actual purchase price for the property is higher than the price indicated in the reference contract. The Net Listing Agreement implies that the broker is entitled to the commission when the sale is concluded, whether or not the buyer pays the full purchase price to the seller. Stromberg v. Smith, 423 N.W.2d 107, 109 (Minn. Ct. App. 1988). This type of legibility agreement is not often used because of potential conflicts of interest between the seller and the broker. For example, if the fair market value of the property is included in the listing agreement, the broker has no incentive to accept an offer of this amount because the broker does not receive a commission. Compensation rules can be an important point of negotiation, as both parties want the other party to cover them in the event of a delay between the parties or any other issue that triggers a third party`s liability. Many listing agreements essentially require the owner to compensate the broker for any liability the broker may assume when marketing the property. Such a provision is complicated for the owner, as these provisions may require an owner to compensate the broker, even if liability for something the broker has done.
