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. You should recommend that the seller seek his own legal advice and give him a reasonable period of time before signing the agency contract. The broker is considered an independent contractor for the duration of this contract. This real estate agency contract does not serve as the agent`s employment by the seller. You can choose to list your property with a new agency at a later date. If the first agency has already carried out work that contributes to the sale of the property (for example. B the idea of a potential buyer who will buy it next), you may still have to pay them a commission. Be sure to inquire with your new agency about the risk of paying two commissions.
